New Reservation Field: Paid amount

Amidst the coronavirus crisis, we dare to not stop our efforts to impove our offering. With this mindset, we released today a new version of our apps (web and mobile) with a small but important change: we have added an extra field in the reservation form, to track the client payments. This is a pretext of a much bigger change which is underway: a full client payments management module, that will be released in due time. For now, with the new field, you can track payments separately from the advances. The field for the advances it was kind of confusing one. […]

You can find the action […]

Enhancements for reservations

We have added four new fields to the reservations: Breakfast: To mark a reservation as including breakfast. Non Refundable: To mark a reservation as non-refundable. Pegged: To prohibit a reservation to be moved from the selected room. ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival): to add manually the expected time a client has stated he will arrive. The first three fields are in the form of mini on-off switches, while the fourth is a drop down with all half hours of the day. This does not constrain you from entering something more specific, like 11:10. The system will accept your input. Some […]
