Entering Rent when it is not the entire amount due

I have added the property and set up the tenant from the Help in the program.  I would think that when I enter that the tenant paid 560.00 when 800 was due that it would appear in the Rental, rent center section that a balance was owed. Does not state anything in this window.  Should this not show up on that the full amount was not paid?

I am finding this is not a user-friendly application.  If they would have first had a trial, I would have not purchased it in determining that it was to difficult to maneuver.

    If partial rent payment amounts need to be entered, I would recommend entering two transactions.

     Enter the first partial amount from the Rental Property tab > Rent Center > Enter dialogue window.

    Once the first partial payment has been recorded, then go to the register for the Rental Income account, copy the first partial payment transaction and paste it in the register, editing the pasted transaction to be for the remaining amount owed.

    I have also reported this behavior and experience to our Development teams so they are aware of the difficulties faced when entering partial payments and can investigate solutions for improving this work-flow.

    I hope this information is helpful and please let us know if you have any further questions/concerns.

    Thank you,
