We’ve added a new feature for Experience plugin so that it allows booking per time slots and per resource. A resource is a general term and the exact meaning depends on your business type. If your business is about travel, then resource could be your tour guide. If the system you want to build is for dental appointment making, then resource is the doctor. There are many use cases for this new Experience feature.
We’ve added a new feature which allow guests to check for their reservation info using a combination of reservation code and email address. Before having this feature, the only way for guest to check their reservation info is through the front end customer dashboard, however they must have a registered account to access. This feature offers an additional way and it makes the system easier to use for your guests while still being able to maintain the privacy of your guest’s reservation info.
We’ve just finished a new feature that allow you to change the default ordering of your asset and experience’s payment methods in front end. The UI is very simple to use, just drag and drop to change the order, then save your asset/experience to save the new order and it will be applied in front end.
We are working on a new feature in Complex Tariff plugin 1.3.0 which allows owner to reorder tariffs in back end using drag & drop, then the new order will be applied when showing tariffs in front end. It is helpful when you want to highlight specific tariffs to your potential guests.
We’ve spent the first 3 months of 2018 in the most energetic way, the big thanks to our users, you pushed us so hard with your valuable support, your endless feature requests and ideas for improvements and many bug reports. You always amazed us with many creative ways to use Solidres. You are the source of inspiration for our continuous development on Solidres. In this month we have made a big release with Solidres for Joomla 2.6.0 and release many new updates to Solidres modules/plugins/templates, we also released 03 new payment plugins for Experience (Authorize.net, Stripe and PayPal Pro). We are also working new Alipay payment plugin which should be released soon. Today we’ve just released 02 new WordPress themes (7Start and BlueBee) for our WordPress users, all of our Joomla templates are also updated to support latest Solidres releases.
For Experience users, we are working on an exciting new feature to allow booking per time slots (for tour/activity happens multiple times per day), each time slot is assigned a “resource” and they are used to check for availability of an experience. A “resource” could be used in different ways, for tourism industry a resource could be a tour guide, the actual definition of a resource dependent on your business type and we believe this new feature will expand a lot of possibilities to use Experience (appointment booking or facility booking as some examples).
