VELUMrent upgrade released on 02. 10. 2010

Changes:

- We separated the settings area into two parts and dedicated the new part to reservation Pricing and Payment options. Next to already know features for currency, tax and model for reservation price calculation we added a new section for Additional Services.

- Additional Services: You can now add any number of custom created Services that are used while creating a new reservation. We separated them into three pricing types which can be changed at any time and can suit everyones need. There is also an option which adds the service to the the daily price so discounts can be applied to them as well through daily price.

Reservation changes:

- We added “real-time” instant data processing to reservations. All pricing and payments data is immediately calculated without the need to refresh the reservation window as before. This is possible by loading all the required data before opening the reservation window, and then double checking that data once again on saving reservation changes.

- We replaced the old Date Picker with the new one which is easier and faster to use and works better with instant data processing.

- Group Reservations: There is a new option to save group reservations as a single reservation instead of separating them into multiply reservations after saving the changes. They can be separated into single reservations afterwards if needed. The visual presentation on the calendar hasn’t change. Group reservations can’t be dragged and dropped on Reservations Calendar.

- Overwrite daily unit price: The default unit price can now be overwritten and set to some other value just for the current reservation without changing it for every other reservation and unit.

- You can add the number of adults and children that are associated with any reservation. Those numbers are directly connected with Additional Services so if there is a service that is priced per adults and children it will use those numbers to calculate the additional daily cost to the reservation.

- Discounts: Choose the discount amount and if it is calculated in percentage or in currency, and also if it is reduced from the daily reservation price or from the total reservation amount.

- Partial Payments: Add partial guest payments with info comments about them. You can add as many partial payments as needed. If the reservation is fully paid simply select the Paid In Full option to dim out this area.
