Some of these actions may not be displayed, depending on your user role or the plan selected for your company's solution.
My Channels Page Improved
The My Channels page has been updated, improving the interface. The controls in the Rent Adjustment column have been updated for ease of use.
Channel Manager Redesigned
The Preferred Channels page and All Channels page have been updated for greater usability. Each channel can now display a summary description. Any preferred partners also include a preferred partner badge. Depending on the current status of the channel, you can also choose to connect or disconnect the channel.
Digital Agreements Not Sent for Owner Bookings
The logic for digital agreements has been updated, and digital agreements are no longer sent for owner bookings, and are only delivered based on house bookings as well as online bookings. This change only affects solutions that use digital agreements.
Send Ticket Link Updated
Inside Kigo, the Send a ticket link has been updated the Kigo Support Center at http://kigo.net/support.
Booking Inquiry Notification Template Updated
The hyperlink for processing the lead that is included in the Booking Inquiry Notification e-mail messages has been updated to allow you to properly process the lead request from the received e-mail message.
Entering Addresses on the Owner Detail Page
In some instances, the auto-complete feature was interfering with the ability to enter address information for an owner contact.
Pre-Stay and Post-Stay E-mail Templates
The Pre-Stay and Post-Stay e-mail templates selected on the Triggers page are now used when you choose to send the guest an e-mail message from the Booking Detail page. Previously, the default Pre-Stay and Post-Stay templates were used instead.
Tax Collection Report and Tax Collection by Owner and Unit Report Improvements
Previously, the Tax Collection report and the Tax Collection by Owner and Unit report generated different statement totals. This issue has been resolved.
Contact Information Detail More Link Improved
For a small subset of contacts, clicking the More link on the Owner page did not open the detailed contact information page. This issue has been resolved.
Entering Rates Using Selected Currency
When entering rates at the Rates & Availability page, you can now enter the rates using the solution's preferred currency culture.
Imported Duplicate Contacts
Imported contacts are now checked to ensure that duplicate records are not created.
Importing Contacts with Tags
Imported contacts can now include tags. For example if importing an owner contact, the contact information now includes the owner tag.
