Solidres mobile app will be available soon for testing

Solidres mobile app will be available for testing soon

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.
  • Main features:
    • 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.



New feature highlight: File upload field for guest profile

In the next major Solidres release, property owner can define a new custom field type for guest profile in backend: File upload, this new field type is very useful if the owner want to require guest digital documents like: passport or government ID to confirm the reservations.

This new feature will require Solidres v2.9.0 (the next major release) and Custom Field plugin v1.1.0.


New feature highlight: Tags

Tags is one of the new features that we’ve been working on. It will be available for both properties and experiences with the Joomla com_tags integration. So what are tags’ use cases?

In Solidres, you can assign one category for your properties or experiences, it is good enough for many users, but others need an ability to assign properties and experiences to multiple categories. We can extend the current category system to support multiple category assignments, however, we think it is better to utilize Joomla’s com_tags for this purpose as it offers more flexibility and it also reduces the complexity for us to refactor the current category system.

For presentation: now you can create menu items that can show properties and experiences by tags (multiple tags are supported). It is good for your site content presentation and organization, it is also better in terms of SEO.

For searching: both properties and experiences Filter modules now support filtering by tags, that allows your guests to find their desired properties and experiences easier and quicker. You can use tags as properties and experiences’ features that your guests might be looking for.
