4.81

August 19, 2022

Released Aug. 19, 2022

We added a new occupancy component that displays the occupancy for your records! Additionally, we now support fixed pricing options.

We included some bug fixes and some minor improvements as part of this release as well.

Features

Fixed pricing option

To allow extra and easier pricing options, we have added an option to add a fixed price to a booking besides the already existing pricing options. A fixed price stays the same, Independent of the length of the booking.

Occupancy component

In this version we have added insights into your occupancy. We show you the occupancy of your dimension records (Resources, Staff, etc) based on available time versus existing reservations in Booker25.

Take a look at our documentation to find out more: https://gen25-jira.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/BPD/pages/3245211653/Occupancy

Custom Form Logic improvement

We introduced some improvements in Custom Form Logic.
We now show you that custom form logic is still running by showing a loading indicator. Next to this we now allow a more convenient way to add icons to the search results which are shown based on custom form logic.

Check out our documentation to see how this works in more detail: https://gen25-jira.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/BPD/pages/1885437966/B25.SearchContext

https://gen25-jira.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/BPD/pages/1970307096/B25.SearchResultCollection

Bux Fixes

Booker25 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.


Admin Actions

If you are upgrading, do the following to get the most out of this release.

If you want to use the occupancy component, you need to add it to the dimension record pages.

If you run into an installation failed error it might be necessary to change the “IS Installing” custom setting to true:

- Go to Setup
- Search for Custom Settings
- Click Manage next to System Setting
- Change the value to true.

If you don’t have that setting, follow the following steps:

- Go to SetupSearch for Custom Settings
- Click Manage next to System Setting
- Click NewName the record IS_INSTALLING, and for Boolean Value true

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.


  • 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.


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


Bux 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.
Version

4.79

July 7, 2022

This release has major improvements for the use of Booker25 in the Salesforce Mobile app. We also made the Scheduler generally available, you no longer need to contact us to use this feature.

Improvements

  • Added a mobile calendar. This calendar will show a single day view that is optimised to be used in the Salesforce mobile app. With improved usability of the reservation form as well.
  • 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.
  • Scheduler is made generally available.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused certain updates triggered by the custom form logic to not update on the form correctly.
  • Removed the B25__Outlook_ICalUId__c field this field was no longer used by the outlook sync and would cause issues on some orgs.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an error when a dimension junction had double booking checking set to none.
  • Fixed a bug where the /availability rest endpoint didn't respect the allow double booking field on the dimension sObject.

Version

4.78

April 4, 2022

This release is packed with a lot of improvements that help you to maintain Booker25 better. We have added UI for admins so they can easily create hovers and titles for calendars, and we have added a wizard that allows you to set up new calendars in a breeze.


Improvements

  • We have added a component for the reservation titles. This component allows for simple editing of the titles shown on calendars.
  • We also added an editor component for the hovers. This component allows you to edit all the relevant information for the hovers. It also gives you a live preview of the hover.
  • 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 Booker25 this list will be updated if attendees have been removed/added.


Bux Fixes

  • The month view of the single record calendar now no longer displays reservation buffers. The reservation is displayed as a full day, making it impossible to show accurate buffer highlights.
  • Fixed dimension hovers that produced an error when hovering over a grouping of records.
  • Removed the scheduler export to image functionality because of changes to locker security in Salesforce.
  • We fixed an issue when editing reservation with a predefined timeframes.

This release brings a long-requested feature. You can now specify that two or more records have a dependent availability. Such as a staff that is only available in a single location (Tim works in Amsterdam on Mondays, but London on Tuesdays) or a machine that can only be booked by certain staff members.

Next to that awesome feature, we made a new filter that allows you to specify a date range to filter the calendar on what is available.

In this release we have focused on a lot of improvements that allow the users and admins to better use Booker25 in their day-to-day process. We included new functionalities for using Booker25 with flows. Made functionality to expose a dimension as an ICal feed. We also improved the accessibility of Booker25.


Features

Version

4.67

May 5, 2021

This is a big release that includes some nice features. For example, we now allow you to filter dimension-records based on a new filter in the top left. We have better support for mobile/communities with our stand-alone reservation form and we support multiple sections on the reservation form. Next to that, we squashed some bugs.


Improvements

  • The reservation form can now be loaded as a component on record pages app pages in a mobile app and in communities. Taking advantage of conflict checking and the functionality of the form without showing the whole calendar.
  • Added a new filter to the lighting calendar. This filter when you open it will add a checkbox to each dimension record in the calendar. You can then uncheck any of them and when you press the button again it will hide any resources you did not have checked. This is stored locally on the computer and is stored per user and calendar.
  • Soft conflicting dimension objects will now no longer be filtered out of lookups. They will now display but with a warning that they would result in a soft conflict.
  • You can now specify a comma separated list for the “Field set to use” field on Reservation type. When this is done each fieldset will create a section on the reservation form. This title of the section will be the label of the fieldset.


Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused the lightning form to ignore the B25__Skip_Subtotal_Calculation__c checkbox.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause availability checking to fail when a user with a different timezone than the user that created a reservation would update a conflict
    checking relevant field from the standard salesforce UI.
