Reservation Management System
Filter Consolidation on Reservation Page
In an effort to simplify the reservation page (grid and list view) while providing filters powerful enough to allow everyone to run their business, we have consolidated our filters into a filter menu next to the search bar. You will find all the filters you have become accustom to using with a few additions that you will see starting to pop in in the coming weeks.
Enhanced Verification and Rental Contracts
Rental Agreements are now saved as a PDF accessible from the reservation overview page. The PDF includes the guest signature as well as ID with an electronic signature showing the IP address and timestamp.
New Fee Account: Cancellation Fee
Direct has added a new fee account typed called Cancellation Fee. This fee should be used to balance cancelled reservations. The Cancellation Fee type is able to be customized based on your cancellation penalty, when the revenue is realized, and if it should be included in the owner payouts. When the Cancellation Fee is added to a reservation, you are also asked if you would like to $0 out all other line items to assist you in balancing the reservation.
Reservation Payment Collection
This section now calculates the balance of the reservation, showing a negative number if the guest has overpaid based on the reservation line items.
