This new feature makes it easy for account managers to see if any accounting features have been updated, edited or changed in the system.

When you have multiple users creating and modifying transactions in your accounting system, account managers need to keep track of who created or modified a transaction. This new Transaction Audit Log provides the answer for Rentec Direct clients!

Access to the transaction history of your accounting logs is extremely helpful for:

  • Audits
  • Training new employees and identifying accidental edits
  • Correcting errors
  • Bank Account Reconciliation
  • Identifying and preventing embezzlement

The Transaction History Audit Log will:

  • List all the transactions that have been added or modified within an account
  • Display information about the transaction on the main row, including:
    • Date of most recent modification
    • The account the transaction is associated with (tenant, property, owner, vendor or bank)
    • Category
    • Amount
    • Most recent action
  • Detailed information of the changes that have been made are listed in an expandable row on click.
  • Transactions are can be filtered to show only transactions that have been edited by a user and/or with a date range
  • Split Transactions: A button has been included to view the history of modifications made to all transactions in a split transaction
A glimpse of a modified transaction will show which user edited an amount, as well as relevant tenant, property, and account information related to the transaction.

A glimpse of a modified transaction will show which user edited an amount, as well as relevant tenant, property, and account information related to the transaction.

Transaction History can be printed, exported to pdf and emailed.  This new transaction history details feature is currently only available to account managers.

Here is how to access your transaction history:

    This is really great. It would be helpful to add authorization to delete transaction to this so things can’t be deleted.
