"Shared" and "Not Shared" Properties Available on My Channel's Info Page
Properties were no longer appearing on the My channel's info page after a property's share status was changed to "Not shared." Both "Shared" and "Not shared" properties are now available on the My channel's info page, and you may change the share status as needed.
iCal Importer Functions Correctly
The iCal importer was failing to run for some clients. This issue has been resolved.
InstaManager Clients are Redirected to Kigo
If you are a current InstaManager client, when you open InstaManager (app.instamanager.com) you will receive a message prompting you to switch to Kigo (newapp.kigo.net). You may click the Proceed button if you want to switch to Kigo now, or click the Not at this time button if you want to continue using InstaManager. Note that all InstaManager users will be automatically migrated to the new Kigo platform by November 1, 2015. When you make the switch to Kigo, we recommend that you bookmark newapp.kigo.net to give you easier access to the site.
Clients Can Update Guest Information on Booking Detail Page
Some clients could not update the E-mail or Phone fields for a saved booking on the Booking detail page. You can now update the E-mail and Phone fields to keep potential renter's information as accurate as possible.
Properties Appear in Pick List on Rates & Availability Page
For some clients, the Pick list section on the Rates & availability page did not show their properties. The properties now appear in the Pick list section on this page so you can easily switch between properties when editing rates.
All Available Properties Appear on the Properties Page
Some clients didn't see all of their properties on the Properties page. This issue has been resolved, and all of your properties appear on the Properties page. This update also corrects the number of properties that display for the individual channels on the My channels page, as well as the distribution feeds.
BrasPag Processor Works with Live Production Credentials
The BrasPag processor and connection testing now work with live production credentials, allowing you to connect and process payments more quickly.
Rates & Availability Page for Selected Property Opens from the Edit Property Page
Clicking the Setup rates & availability button on the Edit property page was opening a blank Rates & availability page. Now if you click the Setup rates & availability button, the Rates & availability page opens populated with the property information.
Valid E-mail Address is Needed for Password Recovery Page
You must use a valid e-mail address registered with Kigo to recover your password using the Password recovery page. A system error message displays if you enter an invalid e-mail address.
(Channels) Check-In and Check-Out Times Come from Property Solutions
The check-in and check-out times for channels come from the ones defined in the property solutions. This ensures the check-in and check-out times are accurately reflected in every channel.
Corporate News Changed to Kigo News on Home Page
The news section on the right side of the Kigo Home page is now called Kigo news. The new title more accurately describes the information that is available in this section.
