Configurators in full screen view

Full screen view is now available for all new and existing configurators.

The full screen view allows configuring events without being distracted by other elements on the page. This particularly helps external users to focus on what's important.

Clicking on the embedded configurator starts the full screen view. Alternatively, an additional floating trigger button can be used.

Enhanced apaleo integration

The integration with apaleo's hospitality platform has been enhanced. Prices and availabilities can not only be read, data can now also be written to apaleo.

After a configurator is connected, blocks for hotel rooms and event spaces can be created, tentative blocks can be confirmed.

Based on a quote's status, folios are generated in apaleo's property management system (PMS). These folios include all line items of a confirmed quote, if necessary split up into different tax rates.

Time zone support

Local time zones are now supported by the admin tool. All documents created - such as quotes or function sheets - use the local time zone settings.

A property's relevant time zone can be set individually for each configurator.

User interface update for quote details

The quotes' details pages in the admin tool have been revised. Unnecessary elements were removed and the clarity was improved.

In addition to increased usability, the focus on the respective active quote of a quote chain has been improved.

Event date in the past

The flexibility of selecting a start date for an event in the configurator has been adjusted. Dates in the past can now also be chosen when changing existing event configurations.

This change in behavior allows, for example, to adjust event quotes to the actual circumstances after an event has been implemented. This may be useful if the details have changed at short notice or the number of attendees differs from the last quote created. Revenue can now be calculated correctly in the configurator even after an event has been executed.

This update has no effect on newly created event configurations. The behavior for new quotes (version 1) remains unchanged - in this case only event dates in the future are allowed.

Optimized mobile view

The event configurators' mobile view of the user interface has been optimized.

This has a positive impact on Apple devices in particular - users of iPads or iPhones can now configure events even more easily in their Safari mobile browser.

More detailed API information

More detailed information is provided in the admin tool - in case of a connection with a third party system.

On the one hand, the user can now check for himself which third-party system prices or availabilities are read from. The name of the connected system (PMS property management system, RMS revenue management system or similar) is now shown along with the icon.

On the other hand, log data can be called if data is written to third-party systems. This can be the case, for example, if blocks are created in a PMS system due to the status change of a configuration in the admin tool.

Bugfixes for discounts & markups

Minor bugs have been fixed for the "Discounts & Markups" functionality.

When discounts or markups are applied to a quote, the new quote version now inherits the status of the previous quote version. The old quote version is set to "Quoted". An unintentional locking of the new version has been corrected.

For easier understanding the email address of the recipient was re-added to all navigation items of the " send quote email " button.
