Custom Reservation Statuses, Jump-to-Month and Other New Features

new reservations

Yesterday we upgraded VELUMrent to a new version. Here is a rundown of a few new features that came with this version…

Custom reservation statuses

VELUMrent now supports up any number of custom reservation statuses. Every status has a changeable name, color and type. By default you’ll only see two statuses. You can edit them or add additional statuses in the Settings menu.

Note that you can now choose the type of every status. This option enables you to choose if it’s possible to freely move reservations around the reservations calendar or if you’ll need to confirm such changes. This option is a safety mechanism for confirmed and approved reservations so they are not moved by mistake.

Restore last session

There were quite a few feature requests for specifying what is the first thing VELUMrent shows after users log in. Some users wanted an option for choosing a default time filter while others requested a default date to be opened.

However, as many users use the same login credentials but want to see different parts of VELUMrent on log in, adding a single setting for the whole account was not the right solution. So to make this possible we implemented browser cookies into VELUMrent. Using cookies VELUMrent can remember you last used settings and then restore them when you log back in.

The great thing about cookies is that they are unique for every browser. This way every member of your staff will have their own settings saved for the computers/browsers they use without interfering with other user settings  on other devices.

Jump-to-Month feature

This feature further extends the functionality of two sidebar navigation calendars. By clicking the month or year number in the calendar header you’ll activate a drop-down menu from where you can choose a specific month and year to jump to.

This feature reduces the number of required clicks, and therefor required time, which takes to jump to a distant month or year on reservations calendar.
