Release notes, Thursday, 17th May 2018

New stuff

At Rezfest we took suggestions from attendees of small things they'd like us to build, and we built and released five of them. In one day! They are:

  • Mobile number of the guest added to the arrival and departures report.

  • Bookings Income report is now easier to perform year-on-year comparison.  Select 'Compare Dates' and it will default to your date range for last year.

  • You can add a cleaner's note to the property that stays with the property, and not just a booking. 

  • Bookings you enter manually now show a breakdown of how the price is calculated.

  • On the Quick Booking form, there's a button to submit and create another. Easy! 

We've also been releasing some other things, such as:

  • We added your payment schedule (think deposit and balance due dates, if you have them) to the API used by sites like HomeAway and Bluetent. Here's a 3-minute video about APIs for the keen beans.


  • Our iCal setup was causing unnecessary load on the servers used for your YesBookit login, so we kicked it over to another server. Didn't know we had iCal functionality? Have a read of this.

Bugs squashed

  • There was a gremlin in our card saving feature for a couple of clients. We found that gremlin and stopped feeding it after midnight.

What's next?

We've got some exciting things in the pipeline over the coming months:

  • We received almost 40 different improvement requests in Rezfest - we will be working through these.

  • The discussions with you all at Rezfest were so valuable, we will be rolling out a system for gathering feedback from YesBookit users - watch this space for more in the next few weeks.

As always, contact us if you have any questions about any of this.

Daniel and the YesBookit Team.
