  • The filters will not reset with each action performed, such as adding a payment, adjustment, or item to the folio. Currently when one of those is performed, all the filters reset and go to default filters.
  • Quantity column added to the table. The quantity will appear only for add-ons and items added to the reservation. 
  • From date filter will no longer be populated when navigating to the folio page
  • Adjustments will appear as a red value in parentheses (5,00)


  • Restriction added when creating or modifying a reservation that the dates for each room must overlap or be adjacent. Will not be able to create a reservation with one room for the 1st – 3rd, and the other room for 15th – 19th. This should be handled by creating separate reservations.
  • On the simple view of  creating a reservation, the default “quantity” selected for each room type will be. This will eliminate an extra click of having to select a quantity.
  • For all reservations made using a different currency than the property’s default, the conversion rate will display on the reservation. Had this previously but was lost with the new reservation views. It will appear as an icon within the breakdown of rates.
