Newsletter 22/8/2013


Clubs that started with us before the beginning of last year were due for an upgrade to get the latest features, planned for spring when your booking systems are quieter.  However we have now upgraded all clubs owing to a deadline from Paypal – changes to their system required us to upgrade everybody so your Paypal transactions would keep working.  Clubs that started with us since the start of last year have been on the latest code release continuously, so now everyone has all the features released this year.  Please take a look at the changes below and check them out on your system.

Reporting on our Summer Maintenance for 2013

We are a bit late with this year’s maintenance owing to clashing deadlines,but most of what we planned is now complete, and deployed to some customers.  If you are interested in an option and don’t see it yet, get in touch and we will put you up the list for deployment.  The reason we don’t deploy a large amount of change to all clubs, especially at this busy booking time, is to minimise any bugs that get ironed out soon after release.

Last feature release for this season – after that, a feature freeze, until the thaw.

The “lodge unavailable” facility has been generalised and renamed “lodge special periods”.  Still called “lodge availability” in the admin menu.  Now, when defining a date range, you can choose whether bookings are allowed or not.  Previously with this facility, bookings are prevented.  The idea is to be able to identify a period with special characteristics, e.g.  “noisy kids week” or “painters in upstairs” so that members know before they arrive.  The mouseover text is shown also to non-members, if you are allowing bookings, but only shown to members, if bookings are prevented.

Second last feature release for this season – after that, a feature freeze, until the thaw.

  • On screen reports now have an improved print style which makes it easy to print them out for posting on your notice board.  This includes the room occupancy report – ideal for showing parties to their rooms on arrival.

Newsletter 15/3/2011

Another release today, with some more new features:

  • When you edit and save anything in the site config, e.g.  email formats, the save is now faster and you don’t lose your place on the page (AJAX for those technical people who like to know…)
  • An additional email to guests and members after their visit.  You set the number of days after the visit ends, and the email is sent automatically.  Use it to invite feedback or to link to a survey, for example.
