Hello August and all Solidres users, we are excited to announce that Solidres mobile app will be available soon for testing, it is one of the most interesting projects that we’ve been working so far, and we now reach the state that public testing is possible.
Solidres mobile app will be available for both iOS and Android users, beta testing will be announced soon for limited user groups before we can roll out official releases.
Below are some highlights:
The new app is made for property owners and staffs. Experience (Tour & Activity) is planned for future releases.
It will be a commercial feature and it is for Joomla users only.
Log in by QR code.
Real time new reservation notifications.
Quickly open a reservation by scanning reservation QR code.
Reservation management (check in guest, check out guest, add note, manage invoice, change reservation status and payment status, manage payment history and reservation note).
Dashboard to see your property statistics.
Please check back again soon for beta testing instructions.
At first, it sounds like a database setup, but it is not. Master/Slave mode is the new feature for Solidres 2.8.0 (Joomla), this new feature is very useful when you want to rent your apartment as a whole unit or as separated rooms at the same time, that means if your apartment is unavailable then all rooms must not be bookable, and if one of your rooms is unavailable then your apartment must be unavailable too. The apartment is the “Master” room type and other dependent room types are “Slave” in this setup.
Actually, we implemented this feature last year, however it does not allow setting different prices for different rooms with that setup therefore we improved it further by introducing this Master/Slave mode.
Adding support for Registration card has been requested multiple times by our users and now we are able to introduce it, please see details in below screenshot. Our Registration card feature allows you to design the card layout by dragging and dropping fields easily and conveniently without touch any lines of code, it can be used by non-technical staffs as well. There are many predefined fields to choose from. When your guest check-in at your accommodation, you can just print the registration card and all the guest’s info will be filled automatically, your guest only need to sign it, it helps to make the check-in process faster than before. This feature will be available in Invoice & PDF plugin v1.2.0 (Joomla).
Our RMS (Restaurant Management System) version 1.2.0 has been released with the following new features:
Shifts: define flexible opening and closing hours for each weekday. Multiple shifts per day are supported.
Turn times: configure the maximum period your guests can use a table before it is being made available for other reservations. Turn time can be defined differently per shift.
Special days: close a day or configure a special day which has different shifts than a normal day.
In addition to that, we also released a new RMS edition for building a restaurant booking portal site called RMS MULTI. This edition allows your guest can check multiple restaurants in a location (city) for table availability and make their own reservation with their favorite restaurant.
Changelog details can be found in your RMS download section, if you need more information please visit our RMS subscription page or don’t hesitate to contact us.
Joomla! 3.9 RC was released on Oct 10, 2018 and we’ve been busy testing it. The Joomla! Core Team and community members have put a lot of effort into it, especially the new Privacy Suite which is the highlight of this release. We’ve completed the integration with Joomla! 3.9 new Privacy Suite, when Joomla! 3.9 Stable released, we will release a new Solidres version which has full support for it. We strongly recommend all users to use the new Privacy Suite instead of other 3rd extensions.
Another exciting new feature is the new Log Rotation plugin, it offers basic log rotation functionality for a Joomla! site, if you need more advanced log rotation functionality, Sidekick is a good choice for you.
