We want to encourage people around the world to experience the benefits of going on Retreat. And not everyone speaks English! Now Retreat Centres can offer guests the option of registering for a Retreat in the language of their choice.
Run simple donation campaigns
Now with improved sliding scale pricing, Retreat Centres can create simple donation campaigns, and have donors pay online, just like when they register for a Retreat.
Contact us to get help setting up your first donation campaign.
Communicate better with guests on the Registration Form
Retreat Centres can now communicate better with guests filling out Retreat Registrations forms! You can now add custom messages to any section on the form – to remind guests of a refund policy, that they can fill out flight info later etc.

New Layout in the Programs Section
Welcome to simplicity. All the features you know & love when creating or editing a program are still here. Now they’re organized into intuitive sections.
Easy to navigate & Intuitive Layout: No more scrolling endlessly up & down the create/edit Programs page: content is now organized into tabs & the Update button is always available on screen.
Try it for yourself by editing or creating a program.
Improved Kitchen Reporting
Help your kitchen staff prepare for meals ahead of time. Now for individual Programs, you can specify which days your guests will need different meals at your Retreat Centre. And you can easily view a report of how many Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners will be required on any given day or week.
Set the meals per day for a Program
View the Meal Summary Report
The Meals Summary will display how many Breakfasts (B), Lunches (L) and Dinners (D) are required on any date you specify. There’s a total for the day and a breakdown per Program.

Introducing Program Notes, for Event Planning (Add-on)
Do you have a Florist that needs to put fresh flowers in the lobby on the first day of each Retreat? Or a Caterer that needs to deliver lunch at 11:30 on Tuesday to your main hall? Now with Program Notes, you can keep track of these internal event details for individual Retreats at your Centre.
This versatile feature could also be used to keep track of Volunteers or to note reminders for your staff.

Charge a Credit Card Fee or Service Fee
Some Retreat Centers get charged fees to process Credit Cards, or other forms of payment. You can now include a separate line item on your customers’ bills to indicate these charges and to recoup them from your customers.

Categorize Optional Items for improved reporting and taxes
Retreat Centres selling Optional Items on top of their Retreat Programs (like Massages, Airport Pickups etc.) can now assign them to different categories. Benefits include:
- Taxes: Retreat Centres can specify different taxes for different Optional Items
- Separate Reporting: Retreat Centres can keep track of how well different categories are doing (ie. create a report for all “Spa” Optional Items separate from “Transport” Optional Items).

Additional Registration-Notification Email Options
You now have the ability to set custom registration notification emails per-program. These options now include:
1. Standard Email Notification: This means upon registering your guest will receive your standard reg-email (found and created under Reg.Settings>Email).
2. Custom Email Notification: Using this option you can custom-build a registration notification email per-program.
3. No Email Notification: With this option upon registering your guest will not receive a registration notification email.
