Can anyone advise me how I add an optional Pool Heat charge to a quote?

I can see how to add a custom rate, but how do you make this mandatory or optional cost to the guest?

Any advise will be gratefully received.

Hi oakisland,

At the moment, we don't support optional charges such that the guest can select which options they want when they're accepting the quote. That is an often-requested feature and is already on the dev roadmap.

You can, as you probably already know, add it manually to any quote if the guest requests it, though I realize that it would be far better to allow them to select it on their own.

Is there a date set for this release?

No dev date has been scheduled so I can't give you a hard ETA. However, after the current email sprints are finished, we'll be returning to quotes and payment options which includes things like optional charges.

OK. I'll keep a look out for it. As I'm new to this site, I'm still finding my way around.

I would have thought however, additional pool heat and cleaning fee charges would have been one of the first things scheduled into a facility like this?

Thanks

You're right that it should be a higher priority. Our Florida/beach area users constantly mention it because of the pool heat options that are prevalent in those areas. They always have to ask-and-add the charge to the quote each time.

There have been so many things added to the dev roadmap over the past year, we've had to constantly adjust our priorities. Looking back, I would have thought that this would have been developed sooner since it's integral for some users. I'll talk to the dev team and get some feedback on where it is.
