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.
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.
You are also able to view and modify wait list requests. To do so, go to Frontdesk – Waitlist.
You can modify or delete each individual wait list request.
Language Support – Administration System
The new administration system includes full support for French and Spanish. By default, the booking system will automatically select the language based on your browser settings. However, if you want to use a different language than the one selected, go to Setup – Users to choose the appropriate language.
Language Support – Booking Calendar
The Booking Calendar 2.0 now includes support for French, Spanish, German, Dutch and Swedish. The Booking Calendar will automatically change the language based on the customer’s browser settings.
You are also able to override the automatic language selection in the Booking Calendar. See our online help for more information on how to override the language setting.
