RentMaster version 8.6 has just been released. This is one of the bigger releases we have done for quite a while.
The major highlight of this new version is the new marketing module. The marketing module is designed to make finding a new tenant as easy as possible, because vacancies are one of the major hazards we are trying to avoid.
Because the new marketing module is quite big, 2 new tutorials have been developed to make learning this new feature easier. These tutorials can be accessed from this link http://www.rentmaster.co.nz/FAQ/Marketing.aspx . I highly recommend you spent about 10 minutes going through these on-screen tutorials.
Other highlights in this new version include...
- A new 'Link' has been added to the Tenant details screen which will take people to the Transactions tab of the rent periods screen.
- The Cashbook transaction list screen has been changed to include the tenant code in the Details column for income transactions which included a tenant selection.
- The Booking Calendar screen has had the first 2 characters of the day name added at the top of the calendar above the date.
- The Database Compaction option has been further restricted in Windows Vista due to potential errors. More details here http://www.rentmaster.co.nz/blog/2008/12/Issues-with-Windows-Vista-and-Database-Compaction.aspx
