October 16th, 2019 Release
The early October release is here and there are a few interesting things we want to tell you about.
2019 has already started and here at OfficeRnD, we are already working hard at adding new features and improving existing ones. The first release for the year brings many new and exciting things ranging from Overpayments syncing from Xero and New filter and utility functions in templates to minor fixes of the Weekly reports and the Memberships filters.
Working closely with our clients showed in most cases Overpayments originate in the accounting systems and often Space Managers/Operators working in the OfficeRnD platform don’t understand such have been created.
In order to prevent mistakes and lost overpayments, we developed a sync between Xero and OfficeRnD where once every 6 hours OfficeRnD will pull new information about overpayments from Xero and if there are new/updated overpayments they will be also created/updated in the Billing -> Invoice section of OfficeRnD.
In order to enable Overpayments sync from Xero you should go to Settings -> Integrations -> Xero -> Configure and mark the checkbox of “Pull overpayments automatically” in the tab “General”.
Note: Overpayments originating from Xero will not be editable and voidable in OfficeRnD. Each Overpayment will have a “Source” property where users can see where the origin of the document is.
The ability to choose the colors for the “Available” and “Occupied” statuses in the RnD Rooms app is a very important part of the branding of each office space.
Now, if you use the “RnD Rooms” app, you will find the option to customize the “Available” and “Occupied” colors, the logo and whether you want to show or hide the room price in Settings -> Apps -> Theme under the “Meeting Rooms Tablet View” section.
With this release, OfficeRnD Managers/Operators will have the ability to see the Status History of all companies and members in the system.
Next to the current status tag of each company and member, now a small clock-like-looking icon can be found. Clicking on this icon will open a pop-up with the Status History information which contains a line for each status change this entity has gone through specifying: the status, the time period for which this status was current and the activity which triggered the change to this status.
We are already working on many new key features and improvements related to ‘Multi-currency invoicing‘, ‘Members portal’, stability, performance, and many more.
