Zak: some scattered news ...

  • General updates:
    • When you add a new customer details in a reservation (with Insert customers), the field 'Country' will be authomatically filled in when the reservation comes from WuBook, otherwise the drop-down menu of your nationwide account will be offered.
    • We added many new help/legend sections to simplify the use of Zak;
    • We have also added the possibility to enter the phone number of the customer in direct bookings;
    • when you insert a new reservation, you can also directly set the departure date (with no need to use your fingers to count the number of nights);
    • from now on, it will be possible for you to search reservations filtering by bookers phone number/email address;
    • On the monitor, you will be able to filter information through WuBook reservation number;
  • Vouchers:
    • We added new fields in which you can specify quick links to the web pages of your facility without burdening vouchers;
    • We introduced information about payments in vouchers configuration;
    • when you create 'not Heavy' reservations (with no availability decrease), it will be possible to send a vouchers with information on the reservation status. It will appear as 'waiting for confirmation'. This way, vouchers will become in any sense a cheap quote (exactly as currently occurs for the request of online quotes but without the chance to pay and confirm in automaticthe the reservation)
  • BugFixes:
    • A bug has been fixed. The bug was about daily notes on reservations with some Cyrillic characters
    • it has been also corrected a bug that occasionally doubled discount reservation coming from online reception
