1) New Online Payment/Tokenization handling – Once the system is setup with an integrated credit card processor or using the Credit Card Vault to store the credit card information, when client reaches the stage to enter their credit card information through the online booking interface, it will now relocate the client to the payment page where the credit card information can be entered. This has been implemented in order to reduce and limit the occurrence of the credit card failures. Credit Card failures would occur if a user had 3rd Party cookies blocked and since the payment interface was in an I-frame, this would have blocked the transmission to determine if the payment was successful. With the new payment handling process, the reservation is created as soon as the payment process is started online and appropriate comments are applied to the reservation displaying the status of the reservation.
Note: Users will NOT be able to edit the reservation for 15 minutes after it has been created. This is to ensure all processes are completed by the customer during this time.
2) Batch Printing – This new update introduces Batch Printing, which allows users to print multiple documents in one job by selecting all of the documents needed for the job. This feature is currently available in the arrivals/departure panel, periodic billing panel and the meter billing panel.
Within the Arrivals/Departures panel is the option on the right to batch print. This brings up the window below.
Please contact DigitalRez to if you wish to have different reports available for the batch process
You can now select which options you would like to be batch printed and press submit. This will bring up the Print Selector box.
Clicking print will display a preview of the forms to be printed in batch.
3) Analytics panel – A new analytic panel has been introduced, providing users with data on percentage occupancy across multiple unit types through charts. This panel can be found by going to Admin -> Administrative -> 6. Revenue Statistics. You can choose to see how you want the data to be represented (Line, Column and Chart) and the time period and desired Unit Types. A comparison of two years can also be accomplished by selecting two different year time periods.
Loading the chart displays the analytic data in the chart form of your choice. This chart shows the occupancy year to year percentages for campsites and cabins for 2015 (note that no data for 2014 is displayed. The legend on the right points to the colors of the bars that represent the unit types and the year of the data).
The charts can be printed or downloaded as an image from this panel by pressing the hamburger button on the right above the legend.
4) Reservation Payment Status Color preference – A new preference is now available if a user wishes to have the payment status (no payment, partially paid and fully paid) to take priority over the reservation status (unassigned, assigned). The assigned colors can be viewed in the Grid Color Legend by clicking on Utilities and choosing the Grid Color Legend option.
Note: Custom alert colors take precedence over all alerts colors except for no deposit paid
To enable Reservation Colours to be determined by Payment Status, rather than Booking Status:
Click Setup from the Menu bar, expand Business Setup and click 1. Business Info
Click on the Preferences tab
Tick on the setting Payment Status has priority over Booking Status on Grid?
The colors can be seen on the grid, signifying the payment status of each reservation. The image below shows fully paid and partially paid reservations.
