Vehicle Detail Handling –  The process of saving vehicle information has now been adjusted.  When making a reservation, when vehicle information is applied to the Rez Vehicle Information directly, this saves the vehicle information to the reservation only.  To save this vehicle information to the client, click the 3 dot button and click Add.   Once the desired Vehicle information is selected, then click Assign to Rez to apply to reservation.

When only one unit is available on a client, the vehicle information will still automatically populate on the reservation.





Email Confirmation Breakout – The email template for online and console reservations are now being broken out. Users can now individually configure what details the customer would see when they complete a reservation online or when an email is sent through the console. Original content from reservation confirmation has been duplicated in both, thus customers would not see any differences unless this template is edited.




Arrival Time update – When you check in a reservation the Arrival Time in the Guest Folio is updated to the exact time that the client is checked-in. This allows security gates cards to have the correct time to be valid and will also keep a visual record of the exact time any client was checked in.



Revenue & Occupancy panel- The date range restriction for the Unit Type Revenue & Occupancy and Unit Revenue and Occupancy panel has been changed from 93 days to 366 days.




Security Gates – Add Pin/Card Dialog – When loading this dialog from the System Card perspective there is now a date range/time that can be set to show when the card is valid between.

New Report-  Departure Report With Bonds – By Client Name has been created. List of security deposit products is used to build report columns dynamically.  It currently handles up to four(4) security deposit products.





New Export Column –  The made date column has been added to the export from the Arrivals/Departures.  With the create_time of reservation without hours minutes seconds.


Quote / Waiting List Search Dialog – Added 2 additional date filters – Any Part Of Rez Within & Entire Rez Within. Any Part of Rez Within filters for any reservation crosses or within the dates selected  and Entire Rez Within filters for only reservations falling withing the date range.




Separate Auto Charge Invoices (cash businesses only) – When an auto product is applied to a reservation, the charge is now placed on a separate invoice.  This will make it easier when a user needs to reverse that specific charge  for Cashed based businesses are now put within their own invoice.





Separate Rez Fee Invoice – Users now have a preference called “Separate Onto Own Invoice”. This flag specifies whether or not cash based businesses will assign the fee on the reservation main invoice or it’s own invoice. This will make it easier to handle the reversal of the Rez Fee easily.

Navigation Menu – It is now caching itself so when you load it up over and over again it will stay on the same tab and not rebuild itself. The only time it should rebuild itself is if you navigate to a different business.


Enhancements – Speed enhancements have been applied to the Account Review/Aging AR/Rez tab query that pulls the information there to speed it up. I also pushed this query to production.
