4 great new booking system features

Posted on Updated on

New featuresWe are very excited to announce that a new version of the WebReserv Booking System will be released on October 1, 2013.

The new version includes 4 great, new features that will make it even easier to manage your online bookings.

Wait list for tour reservations (tour booking system)

The new version includes a waiting list feature for tour reservations/tour bookings. With the wait list, customers can sign up to be notified if a booked tour becomes available, or if new time slots are added.  Plus, the notifications to your customers are automatic, so no extra work is needed on your part.  The wait list feature is currently only available for schedule-based reservations, and you must be using Booking Calendar 2.0. A future version will include a wait list for hourly, daily and nightly reservations.

To enable the wait list, go to Setup – Products & Reservation Rules – select Tour – Schedules.  In the Schedules setup, set Allow customers to waitlist to yes.

Simply set allow customers to wait list to "yes"

Once you have enabled the wait list, customers can sign up on the wait list directly from the Booking Calendar. The wait list feature works on all devices including tablets and smartphones.

    I think it is great that webreserv.com is adding new features and quite consistently. Thank you. A feature I would like to see is the ability to send out a quote from webreserv.com and the ability to authorize only credit/debit cards rather than just capture. It would certainly make my job easier with the addition of these two features.

    Webreserv.com is the best for monthly service fees. I researched several before coming across webreserv.com and now have been with them for about 3 years. Their support is awesome and very knowledgeable. Keep up the good work Martin.
