eZee Absolute Release Note 2.0.19

Your eZee experience is improving as we work to squash bugs and release new features. Here’s an account of the improvements you’ll find in the latest releases.

Include Extras in ADR & RevPar

Initially, there were some discrepancies with ADR and RevPar calculations. To solve these issues we are introducing a new setting – Include Extras in Average Daily Rate & RevPar.

To see that, please go to: eZee Absolute Configuration -> Settings -> Formula

Note: If the property has opted for only RES/CHANNEL account, then the same setting will be available on below path,

eZee Reservation -> Settings -> Formula

Based on the above setting, the value of ADR & RevPar will be reflected across all products.

Note: By default, this setting would be unchecked.

Introducing NetLocks on Night Audit

Currently, there is no net lock facility for Night audit operation. Because of this, whenever multiple users attempt to perform the night audit at the same time, the property’s working date is changed twice and crosses system’s date. 

To overcome this issue we are introducing net locks for night audit operations. When one user is performing the night audit then another user will not be able to attempt night audit operation. 

If another user tries to perform Night Audit, then the following message will be displayed.

Note:
1.  If you close the night audit window or the night audit process is completed, then the netlock will be released automatically.
2. The user who has initiated the Night Audit process can only release the netlock.
