Video Rooms

With the COVID-19 lockdown all around the world, our team wanted to give you one more way to keep engaging your community and bring them together “in” your space. We introduced an initial beta version for integration with web video conferencing software which allows you to have rooms where your members can hang out and chat. You can read more about this in our blog post.

Notification to Admins About Members Removing Saved Payment Details

Now you the platform will send you an email every time a member removes a personal or a company saved payment detail of any kind. This can help you manage the revenue collecting better and pro-actively work with clients who have changes in their payment details.

We are soon also releasing the option of limiting members removing their last saved payment details from their profile.

Location, Plan and Status filter in Direct Messaging of Members

Communicating with members, especially now during COVID-19, is super important for the community managers. We introduced a new feature that allows you to send mass direct messages to different segments of your community filtered by Location, Plan, and Status.

Bulk Discount in Manual Bill-Run

Last month many spaces decided to give a discount to their members. Using this feedback we introduced a new option in the Manual Bill-Run, where now you can apply a discount amount in bulk for all invoices that are being generated.

Option to Make Product and Member Fields Mandatory

Now you can make the Product field in New One-off dialog and the Member field in the New Booking dialog mandatory for admins creating Fees and Bookings. This helps you make sure this information is captured if this is an essential part of your process.

Draft Invoices in a Separate Grid

There are a few situations when the system generates invoices and some of them will require admin approval. In such cases, these invoices are created as Drafts. Until now they were visualized together with all other invoices and it was hard to notice and find them. Now, these invoices will be listed in a separate grid on top of the Invoices page and you will be able to act on them right away.

New Public API Endpoints

We introduced public API endpoints for Check-in/outs, which can help you if you are building your own integration which works with check-in. You can read more about it in the API documentation.
