Latest simpleERB updates - July 2016
We alluded to some big changes that we had been making a few weeks back and we’re pleased to say that many of these features have now been launched to simpleERB users in our latest simpleERB updates.
We get a lot of feedback and it’s important for us to understand how our users use simpleERB. Everyone is different and in fact just this morning we saw one of the restaurants who use simpleERB using the system in a completely different way than we had imagined. A guest list for a nightclub.
For the last 6 months we’ve been going through suggestions, developing the ideas and getting further feedback and yesterday, we added some long-awaited features to simpleERB.
Set widget on only allow bookings at certain increments
“Can I set the booking widget to have a minimum time that people can book online before they arrive. We get people who book and we don’t have enough notice that they are arriving”
Good news! We’ve now added to your widget settings the ability to set your widget to only allow bookings at certain increments in advance of the booking time.
We’ve also updated some of the advanced adjustment menus. Some of these previously were set up so that you if you wanted to change a turn time, or if you wanted to close a date, you had to do this each day or one date at a time. Now you can amend these as a block of dates, on certain recurring days or as you were on a specific date.
New bookings view
In bookings view, we’ve added a new tab that allows you to see all of the bookings which have been added to your diary today regardless of which date in the future they are. Like an activity log. There’s also a downloadable report for this.
To give you a bit more information on a customers booking, we’ve started logging in the booking notes where the booking came from (waiter/widget) as well as leaving a note if a member of staff changes the covers on that booking.
As well as these features, there are a whole host of smaller features and improvements which we have made as well as squashing some pesky bugs that wouldn’t go away. We’ve also still got more improvements up our sleeves!
We hope these features are a welcome addition and don’t forget, if there’s something you’d like to see or if there’s something which you haven’t found clear, drop us a note on firstname.lastname@example.org
