We are working away on some large changes so a slightly 'lighter' release that improves Instant Websites with bug fixes and minor updates

Instant Websites

  • More location cues throughout the Instant Websites to improve search engine visibility for location searches
  • Add an 'About' section that will show up on the Contact page for every website when filled in

Minor Changes and Bug Fixes

  • Guest Area: when guests are viewing a booking, the access codes will now be visible 3 days before arrival
  • Messaging: we are laying the groundwork for improvements around Guest messaging
  • ICal availability syncing:
    • we no longer render historical unavailability on our iCal availability feeds as it causes a problem on some OTAs
    • This doesn't really serve any real purpose and confuses some consumers e.g. Pitchup who will mark past booking as being in conflict
  • Owner Statements
    • add a company name to invoices table and pull in from Users company name when state is changed
    • we have updated the format of the calculation log a little to make it easier to read
  • Damage Deposit
    • fix a problem that sometimes caused a damage deposit reminder email not to be sent out
  • Pricing
    • If there is no base price, do not add on the fixed extras. This can make for really cheap stays when there is no base rate.
  • Channel Manager:
    • allow the reservation lookup to specify a Client instead of a Property. This allows for a move fuzzy match in the case of moving bookings to new properties
  • Booking.com: reset all related settings when setting up an entry on join
  • Rich Text Editor: We have upgraded the WYSIWYG HTML editor inside Bookster.
