We're working on something we call "global settings". It's basically taking all the property level settings - the options you change and set at the property level - and moving them to the account level. That way you can change settings in one place and have it affect all properties.
This has become more and more necessary as we've worked with owners that don't understand where the settings are and/or have multiple properties. Most owners with 3 or more properties don't have different rates, taxes, billing settings, leases, etc for each property. All or most of their properties have similar settings.
You'll still be able to set settings at the property and quote levels.
This wasn't something we planned, but there are some changes we'd like to make to the system in 2013 that require us having settings at the global/account level. It was getting too difficult to ignore.
- Expanding inquiry workflow
- Adding payment options and reminders
- Expanding payment forms
- Templates for security deposit emails and the booking confirmation email
- QuickBooks integration
- Inquiry widgets and generic inquiry email parsing
- Updating design throughout UI
As always, these are subject to change at any time.
Hope this helps,
