Limiting how far in the future Bookings can be made

Meeting room bookings are an essential part of the coworking world. This is why we are constantly adding more control over this element of the platform. The newest feature allows you to limit how far in the future a new booking can be made. If you don’t want members or public users to be able to book for more than e.g. 6 months ahead, you can do this now.
This feature is per booking policy which allows you to have different rules for a different set of rooms. Your booking policies can be found in Settings -> Platform -> Calendar & Bookings tab -> Booking Policies.

Limiting how much in the future Booking occurrences can go

Similar to the feature above limiting the meeting rooms booking occurrences span is something that will give you the ability to control your resources better.
A good thing to note here is an occurrence of a reoccurring meeting can’t be later than the permitted booking future time limit. In short: if your bookings are limited to e.g. 6 months in the future, even if you haven’t limited the occurrences span, they will be limited to 6 months from the current date too.

Amenities Property in Booking Mail Templates

Extending the current capabilities in the mail templates for bookings, we are introducing Amenities Property which will allow you to dynamically list the amenities of the booked room in the emails related to each booking.

Because of the nature of amenities, which are usually a list of things, this property can be used only in the Code mode of the template editor and should be formatted to your likings (billets list, etc) with some simple code snippet. These snippets are coming soon as a help article. Until then you can feel free to contact our support team at support@officernd.com and they will support you in including this in your templates.

Footer and Header in Invoice Templates

We are extending the invoice templates with the ability to have a Footer and a Header in them. Information in the footer and header of an invoice will be visible on each page of the generated invoice.

The feature allows you to align (left, center, right) the footer and header content and also choose the size of the font. You can use some of the available, in the template, dynamic content properties too.
