Rentman platform updates

 

2. Find important projects faster

Do you need to quickly find pending projects, hide all canceled projects, or do both simultaneously?

Try the new ‚ÄėProject status‚Äô dropdown menu to find the projects you‚Äôre looking for.

 

3. Have more control over who sees your data

Extra input fields sometimes contain sensitive data that you might not want to share with all of your employees. You can now keep this information out of the wrong hands by managing which users can view these fields.

You can also hide the fields that you may not want to use anymore, while still being able to keep its historical data.

Adding new contacts is now a lot quicker. Simply type the company name and Google will fill in all the details for you, allowing you to focus on your project instead.
