Booking Software Feature Updates: June 2017

Mulit-lingual – Offer Support In Multiple Languages

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 international guests the option of registering for a Retreat in the language of their choice.

Introducing Program Notes, for Event Management & 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.

Enhanced Reporting, Taxes & Registration Emails: March 2017

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:

  1. Taxes: Retreat Centres can specify different taxes for different Optional Items
  2. 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).

You now have the ability to set custom registration notification emails per-program. These options now include:

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.
