    You can use any data on the reservation itself, related records and data on the resource, staff, availability or anything you’re booking and in your rules, allowing for endless possibilities. You can even use the permissions of the user, trying to make the reservation. It’s also possible to give detailed feedback to the users trying to make the reservation, why something is not allowed or why they’ll get a warning.

Version 5.4 -May 10, 2023

Features

  • We’ve extended our Custom Form Logic . It was already possible to improve the behaviour of the reservation form with custom form logic.
    But we added some new possibilities. It’s now possible to enable or disable fields, show or hide fields, or show or hide entire sections. And use this when opening the reservation form.  This way you can improve the user experience by only showing users the necessary fields and sections. find out how to do this, check out our documentation page on Custom Form Logic.

We’ve added a lot of new functionalities and improvements to the calendar and the reservation form with the most important being the Reservation Duration and the Zoom integration.

Features

  • Reservation Duration 

    Is now available on the reservation form. The Duration field on reservation type was already available but now it is also validating on the reservation form. This means you can give a reservation type a fixed duration and the reservation form will enter the endtime based on the start time, making it a lot easier to work with fixed durations. The endtime itself is disabled for manual input.  For reservations with a duration, drag and drop resizing is disabled on the calendar. 

    All of this functionality can be overridden for specific users by giving them the Override Reservation Duration Custom Permission. For more information refer to our documentation

  • GoMeddo Zoom Integration

    It's now very easy to set up an integration between Zoom and GoMeddo which you can use to add links to Zoom meetings to the GoMeddo reservation.

    For more information refer to our documentation for instructions and how to install this package.

Bugfixes & Improvements

  • The reservation will now automatically update the endtime if you make changes to the start time.

    updated documentation.

  • The bug that caused the timepicker component to be hidden behind the rest of the screen has been fixed.

  • Fixed a bug where inactive resources were not filtered out of intelligent search results

  • Fixed an issue where Experience Cloud would show an error when using a guest user.

  • Fixed an error with insufficient privileges to create a field in the Experience Cloud. 

  • Moving or changing reservations would display multiple copies of the same reservation on the month view of the single calendar.

  • It’s now possible to define yourself which fields are used in the trigger for price calculation, based on the same configuration which was already available for the reservation form. Take a look at our documentation to find out how.

  • We have made some changes to the Double Booking Matching conditions. Instead of providing a condition in the field on dimension you can now specify the condition using Custom Metadata Types.

Take a look at our documentation to find out more

Custom Form Logic improvement

Bug fixes

GoMeddo upgrades would sometimes fail due to a missing field in the configuration. We fixed that in this release so it no longer references that field

We made sure that if a user does not have write permissions to the Conflict object, the conflicts are now handled as hard conflicts.

Version 4.80 July 15, 2022

In this release we introduce two major new features, next to that we solve a number of bugs and we have focused on improving the overall experience of the app.Multi-dimensional availability now displays the dependencies in the multi-calendar. Making it clear when you can make a reservation while there is a dependency on another dimension (e.g. staff working in a specific location for example).And also we introduce custom conflict rules, this allows you to conflict reservations based on your own fields. For example, if your business rule specifies that in a student room a single gender is allowed you can see if the reservation that is being created fits that criteria.

Features

  • The recently released “Multi-dimensional availabilities” will now be displayed in a way that makes it clearly distinguishable compared to normal availabilities in the multi-calendar.

  • We replaced the old Visualforce calendars with the new LWC calendars for fresh installs.

  • We introduced a new way in which you can filter for dimension records that have reservations. We now give you the option to show only the records that actually have reservation that apply to your filter.
    Check out our documentation.

  • In this version we introduce a new conflict checking option. With this you can create your own “reflective criterias” which allows you to specify when something should (or should not conflict). For example in the screenshot below we can make sure that only two reservations with the same Gender__c value are allowed in the same resource.
    Check out our documentation.

  • Added the ability to use the readOnly and hiddenReservationFilters on the mobile calendar when wrapping it.


Bug fixes

  • We make sure any error messages are now clearly displayed on the page or in the browser's-console instead of suppressing them from the page.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause an error toast notification to say Unknown error instead of the actual error message.

  • Enabling live-sync for google/outlook caused the sync to not be scheduled automatically. This has been fixed.

  • For the Custom Form Logic the Test_FormHelper now allows you to better test the interaction with specific related list items.

  • For the Custom Form Logic the Test_FormHelper now allows you to run the before save action.

  • The Searchresult class in the custom form  now exposes the id and label properties

  • Added the ability to use values like TODAY and YESTERDAY in the filters on the calendar if they are set to date or datetime fields. Click the use relative date link to switch to relative date mode in the calendar filters.

  • The new "Calendar Wizard" leads you through the process of creating a calendar for any object. It will create the required configuration records as well as the required objects and fields​Calendars now have a minimum height. This allows you to still properly edit filters when no dimension records are shown in the calendar.

  • We included a new field for the attendees in outlook/google for reservations. This field can contain a comma separated list of email addresses and will be synced to the attendees in outlook/google. When syncing back to GoMeddo this list will be updated if attendees have been removed/added.


Bug fixes
