August Updates

By Cloudbeds, August 4, 2015

Our talented team works hard behind the scenes to improve our software and add more integrations each month.

Here’s what we pushed live in August:


View list of In-House Guests on the Dashboard

A new tab on myfrontdesk’s Dashboard shows the names, reservation number and status of each guest at your property, whether he or she arrived today, will be leaving later today, or is a stayover. This tab also presents the total number of guests, and includes a breakdown of adults and children.


Check-In and Check-Out buttons added back to Dashboard

By popular demand, we replaced the check-in and check-out buttons on the dashboard. Thanks to all customers who gave their feedback!

Reservations list: sort by Source and Status

We’ve made the task of browsing and finding your guests and their reservations easier. Sort reservations by source or guest status, and find them quickly.

Activity Log: show / hide all details

Looking for specific activities in the Activity Log?  With the click of a button, now you can expand all entries in the page to see the details.

Add banner to page print

Add a beautiful image that will appear as a banner at the top of system pages you print, like reports and guest folio. This does not apply to Registration Cards, which already have the option of their own heading images.

Calendar View: Guest Names and Optimized for Print

Previously, for reservations that were checked-in more than 2 days in the past, you would not be able to see the guest’s name. Now, we made sure the guest name always appears.


We also know many of our customers like to print the Calendar, so we improved the layout for a more organized print version.

“Other” as Payment Option

We have added “Other” as a payment option when creating a new reservation from within the application and when adding a payment to a folio.

Export Customer List

We added basic functionality to export your Customer list to .csv file that can be imported by other software.


Minor fixes and adjustments.



Postal / Zip Code not mandatory

Yep, it’s true – some locations don’t have (at least standard) Zip Codes / Postal Codes. So, this field is not mandatory anymore–neither on the booking page, nor on other internal pages of myfrontdesk.


  • Minor fixes and improvements.
