You can vote for each feature once per month.
Ability to add an icon to a booking. This icon would then display on the calendar to remind ResBook users of a special requirement of that booking. E.g. a wine bottle (if they ordered one on arrival) or dinner icon (if they ordered dinner throughout their stay).
When a booking is placed with an arrival date within the balance due period, the amount charged to the guest should change from only charging the deposit to charging the full balance.
For bookings within a given period from their requested arrival date if provided, override the minimum night stay period rules and allow bookings for any number of nights.
Thank you emails should only send to guests after the booking has departed not owners as well.
Ability to set either instant notifications or daily notifications of any bookings that fail at the payment stage.
Add the number of guests for each accommodation summary to the Owner Statement UI and PDF. This will give owners an understanding of why high cleaning or linen fees could occur after particular bookings.
For bookings that are 7 days, 14 days or 1 month out, allow 1 night stays where a higher minimum stay period is typical.
For the Agent Summary/Agency statement reports - Set Agent list to alphabetical order.
Ability for classifications in ResBook to be listed with Airbnb.
Improve countries in ResBook to auto-select resgions/counties if a city is selected and to provide more options.
Show the GL Code for each item on the Owner Statement summary UI.
Possibly with a hidden section that is closed and ability to select a template to send to the hidden section.
Add an icon to state the latest invoice has been completely paid for the related booking, on the booking's summary.
Assign all stock units to a new staff profile by default when creating them.
Owner bookings should have their own colour on the calendar
Integrate new guest functionality so that it only pops up if you want to add more than basic information.
Re-order the bed configuration section when adding/editing a new stock unit to group them by bed type better.
Ability to search services by name when adding one to a booking.
In all reports, offer the ability after selecting the desired date range to have that date range remain the default in that report.
Add more "Empty" Templates for property customization
Enhance the integration with Xero to retrieve updated invoice details when they are changed in Xero. This will create the opportunity for bank transfers or other payments outside of ResBook to be matched with bookings and automatically updated within ResBook.
Ability to print a form from Resbook which contains: Guest name, address, phone number email address, arrival date, departure date, room/classification booked & number of guests. Option to select either booking total or amount paid for agent bookings. Notes. Sign in area for guests.
Add the ability for users to pick an agent on the portal page for Booking.com. This agent would automatically add itself to all Booking.com bookings as they come in and apply the commission to it.
ResBook should charge the balance remaining automatically if the account has Payment Express depending on the balance due rule.
Possibly with a bold heading above the calendar
Support the various discount options that Airbnb provides and allows ResBook to manage.
Ability for properties to set an agent's commission settings to charge the on to the guest or not. This will resolve balances going negative if the full booking amount is being charged to the guest with the agent being paid later, for example on a monthly basis.
Add a basic security group list to select from when creating a new ResBook staff account. For example, "Basic staff" with view permissions to the calendar and ability to create a booking. We will maintain the ability to customize per module within the profile as well.
Update room features available to select in ResBook to include those supported by Airbnb
When a large number of rooms are linked with a channel or channel manager, manual updates can take a long time to send up. Add the ability to send batches of rooms instead of only having the option to send all.
Would be helpful if you could just click on a square to close a room. Note: this would mean users will need to pick between placing a new booking and creating a closed room each time they want to make a new manual booking.
Hovering over the booking on the calendar should show the guest names.
Ability to run the full list report out of Resbook based on 'date booking created'.
Add services to the cleaning schedule report.
Ability to snooze a stock unit on Airbnb from within ResBook.
Ability to send an email to owners with a summary of forward bookings for their property.

The new calendar should display bookings in their own colour if they are ready to be checked in as well as in their own colour if they are ready to be checked out.
Alter the housekeeping button so it takes the user to a Housekeeping menu. This will allow those using tablets to get to other housekeeping options such as settings and schedule instead of simply the housekeeping calendar. We will then add calendar as a menu item as well.
Ability to pick if the integration automatically sends minimum stays and rates or not.
A forecast report so we can see a break down of coming arrivals, stayovers, departures and guest numbers for each night.
As default keep both the "Additional Information" and "Notes & Comments" sections open when viewing a booking.
