Great job, Sam! I thought I was seeing things. The thing I am most excited about is the allowance of an amount instead of %, for the deposit. I was thinking today, what a problem this was for me. Sometimes I had 50% and other times the fixed dollar amount. :)

A few things I don't understand...

- Updated the quotes grid to once again show the 'Arriving' filter ???

- Added an 'Any Time' option to the 'Arriving' filter on the quote grid ???

Also..

- Added new contact name page to public quote acceptance process so that guest can enter the proper first name, last name and email address of the point of contact. *** Is this when they accept the Rental Agreement? If so, can we add CELLPHONE? They need to enter their cellphone somewhere, since that is the only way to contact them, in the event of an emergency, during their stay.

Thanks,
Claudia

I'll be putting out a blog post either tomorrow or the next day that explains these updates in layman's terms. This is just the raw update post with the details. ~Sam
