Welcome to the work underway update for December.

Read all about what ResBook has been up to and what we have planned for before Xmas.

Latest on our current development..

Over the last 2 weeks the team has been delivering quite a few new features around Airbnb. The following release notes cover the various features released:

On top of the above the team has also released a new feature around filtering services on the manual booking form.

In other news..

We have also starting making some changes to the current helpdesk so make sure to check it out every now and then. A few areas we are working on include:

  • Improving the home page layout (In progress).
  • Adding more specific tags to different articles to improve search functionality.
  • Writing new articles where some are missing.
  • Improving the categories on the home page as well as their content.
  • Adding video courses all about using ResBook.

Stay tuned to the product update section or visit the helpdesk regularly to stay up to date.

What do we have planned in December?..

The team for the next few weeks will be firstly finishing up the bulk open rooms feature. This will be built using react so expect a nice new look and feel with great performance. This is pretty much complete so look out for this over the next day or so.

On top of the above, we are aiming to finally wrap up development for new booking on mobile as an early Xmas present for our clients. It will be a stretch but the team is up to the challenge.

Other than that, the team will be running through a large number of support tasks that are affecting multiple clients. We want to make the Xmas freeze as smooth as possible for as many people as possible so expect quite a few smaller releases over the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned for upcoming releases by following the product update blog.

Thank you for reading what we are up to.

Merry Christmas from the ResBook team!
