rental property manager

I have Q Home & Business 2014.....just setting up, but I used a few years ago.  I own 9 rentals and want to know if I should use Rental Property Manager (which has generally terrible reviews online!)  My questions:

Does RPM overlay Quicken so that it adds features to the existing platform?  When I open Quicken w/ RPM added, will all the additional fields be there on the main screens?  When I download from my bank, will the data flow into RPM for incoming rents etc?

Will RPM add the obviously needed categories to Business Income and Expenses?  The fixed categories for business income are Consulting, Other and Sales.  I need Rent, Fees, etc.  Expense categories should be repairs, capital improvements, mortgage payments, utilities, etc. 

I can create all these categories, and add the property address tags.  But will Rental Property Manager do this for me.....or at least give me a starting platform?

Thanks so much!

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
