Contacts  

There's a completely new "Contacts" Workarea within the software in which you can store any number of contacts you wish beyond what's available for tenants, landlords, and vendors. These can be anything from personal contacts to business contacts, to real estate agents, to you name it.

As part of the contacts information you can also classify the "Contact Type", which makes it easier to manage and filter your data. For example, you can create a Contact Type called "Real Estate Agents", "Mortgage Brokers", "Personal", and so on.

Tenant ComboBoxes  

The Tenant Selection Comboboxes have been significantly revamped. Instead of just simply listing all Tenants by alphabetical, the Tenants are first sorted by their Status ("Current", "Potential", "Past", "Non Potential", and finally "Evicted"), as well as color coded by their Status: Black for Current, Green for Potential, Gray for Past, Orange for Non-Potential, and Red for Evicted.

Payment Type

Upgraded Amortization Table  

The Amortization Table Report in the Analysis Workarea has been completely revamped in this release. Firstly all amortization reports now include a bar chart showing the Loan Balance and Principal Balance over the term of the mortgage.

In addition to this, it's now possible to customize the amortization report title to anything you wish, so that you can for example state for which property the current report is for, etc.

You can now also email any amortization table report directly within the software, making it easier to share your research to partners, investors, etc.

Digital Code Signing Certificate  

LandlordMax now has a Digital Code Signing Certificate to authenticate and guarantee that the code is from LandlordMax and hasn't been altered.

Code signing lets you know the origin of the code, and prevents a hacker from distributing software in someone else's name (for example, putting a malicious program on a Web site for download and claiming that from Microsoft). In addition to verifying the identity of the publisher, code signing can protect the code from tampering (if the code is changed, the digital signature is invalidated). Thus, code signing provides two security protections: authentication of the author of the code and integrity of the code itself.

More information on Code signing can be found at Microsoft and Wikipedia.


Start/End Date to Security Deposit Reports  

A Start and End Date field have been added for all Security Deposit reports to make it possible to list all security deposits for leases between the two specified dates. This allows you to get a list of all Security Deposits for this year, last year, last month, last quarter, etc.

As well a Lease Begin and End date column has been added to all the Security Deposit reports.

Enhanced Rent Roll Report Performance  

Optimized the Rent Roll Reports to increase the speed by they are generated by at least an order of magnitude, and in some cases by up to two orders of magnitude.


Enhance Lease to Scheduled Entry  

When a new lease is saved and a scheduled entry is created, rather than just use the Lease's Begin Date then revert to today if there is no Begin Date, the software will now try to use the Lease's Begin Date, then the Lease's Move-in Date, and then today.


More Emphasis on Priority for Workorders  

Priority has now been added as a column in the main Workorder Workarea. As well, the priority column is now included in several of the Workorder reports.

Tenant Status Filter  

A new Tenant Status filter has been added in the Tenant List Workarea. This allows you to limit the list of tenants to "All", "Current", "Potential", "Evicted", etc. Tenant Statuses.

  • The graph type selection is saved for each report so that you only need to set it once
  • Added a confirmation message on database restore to verify this is the action the user wanted
  • The Payment Type field has now been added into the Scheduled and Suggested Accounting Entries
  • Suggested Accounting entries are now only calculated when the Suggested Accounting Entries Tabbed Panel becomes visible instead of any time an update is done in the main Accounting List Workarea to enhance overall performance on other actions
  • If a backup request fails on an upgrade or system shutdown, the system will now ask if you want to try again rather than moving on in to the next step (upgrading or completing the shutdown)
  • You can now delete a tenant if it's only associated to a building and/or unit, this is no longer considered a referential issue within the database
  • Increased the potential maximum size of memory that can be allocated to LandlordMax for performance reasons.
  • Increased the size of the Comments box on the workorder data entry screen.
  • Moved up Invoices/Receipts buttons to put all data entry screens at the top (moved down reports).

Version 6.05a New Features

 

Database Compression  

The internal database is now significantly further compacted/compressed as part of the database backup process.


Version 6.05a Fixes

  • Fixed an upgrade bug (only occurs when upgrading) that could cause issues with the tenant data if at least a tenant from the previous version (3.11f) had an email associated to it, and that email also met a specific set of criteria. Although very rare, if all the specific criteria were met, it could cause damage to the tenant information. If you do encounter this error while upgrading, please upgrade to version 6.05a and then "Restore" your database from your pre-upgraded backup database. This will complete resolve the issue and your data. If you're unsure how to do this, or what this means, please contact us at support@landlordmax.com and we would be more than happy to further assist you.
    If you've already upgraded and not encountered this issue (ie. you had no tenants with emails that meet both specific criteria), then no further action is required, you are not affected (please note it is extremely rare, so the odds of encountering this bug are very very low, and if you do, it will be immediately apparent).
  • Fixed a bug which caused Scheduled Entries to be saved when the popup dialog was closed by pressing on the "X" (the close window button). This could result in a processing bug for Suggested Entries if no Start Date was entered in the popup dialog.
  • Fixed a bug for the report "Accounting Entries for a category for a tenant". The pie chart option has now been removed since it's not applicable and could cause the program to error.
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't print an individual accounting entry without first saving it.
  • Fixed a bug with images that have Invalid ICC Profile Data. This is a bug within the programming language and not LandlordMax, therefore images with this issue are no longer allowed to be saved withing the software.

Mac Compatible  

LandlordMax is now FULLY MAC COMPATIBLE! This includes the latest Mac OS Snow Leopard

LandlordMax Property Management Software New Feature Screenshot: Mac Version

Adjusted the default sorting order on the following reports from Date Due only to Date Due, then Building, and then Unit:

  • Rent Roll

Version 6.05d New Features


Improved 32-bit and 64-bit versions  

Previously the software was offered as one version which worked on both 32-bit and 64-bit computer systems. All versions from now are separate and optimized for each specific 32-bit and 64-bit system.

LandlordMax Property Management Software: Improved 32-bit and 64-bit support


Admin priviledges no longer required on Windows  

The software has been updated so that it no longer requires Admin priviledges to run the database engine on Windows Vista and Windows 7 computer systems.


Outlook connector upgraded  

The Outlook connector library embedded within LandlordMax has been upgraded to the latest version and should resolve issues that some people were experiencing with some instances of Outlook that weren't properly connecting and could in some cases give an erroneous "Outlook not installed" error message.


Enhanced QIF file support  

The software now fully supports all QIF file format specifications, including the date formats that were adopted after the last official specification was released.


Improved pie chart labels  

The pie chart generation process has been significantly enhanced in this version, especially for pie charts that contained a lot of data (pie wedges) where reading the labels was next to impossible. In this latest version labels are drawn on the left and right sides of the pie chart rather than directly on the pie, with lines going from the label to the appropriate pie wedges. This allows for better readability of pie charts. As well, if a pie chart contains too many pie widges (labels) so as to make the chart unreadable, the software will now omit the labels and only display the pie chart itself for enhanced viewability.

LandlordMax Property Management Software: Pie Chart new labeling


Upgraded embedded SQL engine

Version 6.05d Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where typing in the first letter of the city and/or state fields of an existing city/state would cause it to incorrectly set the text selection and make typing in the value difficult and error prone.
  • Fixed a bug that was recently introduced in a recent update where some amount columns were sorted alphanumerically rather than numerically.
  • Fixed a bug where the values from some of the comboboxes weren't always immediately refreshed on a database restore operation.

  • Fixed a bug where the Date Discrepancy would sometimes miscalculate the amount when it was manually entered. Once saved, and/or if entered with the mouse, the discrepancy was correct. The software now always correctly displays the date discrepancy, regardless of if you use the calendar or manually type it in.
  • Fixed a bug where the Building associated to the Landlord wasn't always saved on the first save attempt, it had to be done on a successive save in some situations.
  • Fixed a bug where the selected Landlord on the Landlord/Building popup association window was incorrectly selected if it had been pre-sorted before.
  • Fixed a bug where if you deleted a single residential home the building combobox in other areas wasn't updated until the software was restarted. It is now immediately updated.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes on some systems the popup Scheduled Entry dialog window wasn't wide enough to fully display all the information.
  • Adjusted the column names of several reports where the space between the words in the column names was missing.
  • Fixed a bug where the date of birth for the tenant wasn't cleared when creating a new tenant.

  • Fixed a bug where you sometimes couldn't create a new "Daily" Scheduled Accounting Entry.
  • Fixed a bug when exporting QIF files with accounting entries with empty values for the Date Paid (no longer includes the date line in the QIF file).
  • Fixed a bug where in some cases the login credentials for a just restored database that was password protected weren't always immediately requested. Now it's always immediately required.
  • Fixed a bug where an invalid image somehow saved into the software for the logo could cause the Preferences section to hang when loaded the next time. Now it will present an "Invalid" image for the logo if this should ever happen.
  • Fixed a bug in the Vehicles tabbed panel under the Tenant where the Comment field was not always correctly being updated.
  • Fixed a bug where the Amount Due column was not displayed in the report "Accounting Entries grouped by tenant" export files only (Excel, PDF, etc.).

  • "jpeg" is now also an excepted file extension for images within the software, along with "jpg" and "gif".

  • Fixed a bug where sometimes when an accounting color code was changed and saved the screen didn't immediately reflect the change.

  • Fixed a bug where on some computers the width of the popup dialog windows for some of the accounting feature were not the full required width on some systems.
  • Changed the error message when trying to restore to a newer version so that it says it's not forward compatible rather than backwards compatible.
  • Fixed a bug where part of the address in the report "Expenses for a building" in the report header was whited out.
  • Fixed a bug where you can now add spaces or commas in the Amount for the amortization table (for example 1 000 000 or 1,000,000 for 1 million).
  • Fixed a typo where the field use to be labelled "Date Discrepency" to where it's now labelled "Date Discrepancy".
