Development Update and Self-Catering bulletin | October 2019
Welcome to the October issue of Self-Catering news from SuperControl.
We're bang in the middle of conference season and the team have been busy out on the road catching up with clients and meeting new faces. We've been spreading the word about Master Cancel, the game-changer that gives you a BIG advantage over your competitors (more about this below). There's still more events to come, we hope to see you at a conference near you!
The team continue to make functional changes and add new features to keep SuperControl evolving. Here are the latest developments:
1. Changes to the header layout: The layout of the header area in your account has been updated. This new design is mobile optimised for easier searching and the design has been simplified on desktop as well.
The search functionality remains the same as before, click Search and choose your filter parameter:
On a mobile, to log out click on the menu drop down and click Log out:
2. New! Copy discounts feature is live: In Properties > Edit > select property > Discounts. You can now copy individual discounts to selected properties.
When you click Copy you can copy to selected properties or groups:
NB: If a discount conflicts with the same discount on another property for the same dates or overlapping dates, you will will receive the following alert before it will allow you to copy:
Click OK if you want to proceed or Cancel to abandon the copy. By clicking OK, it will remove the conflicting discounts and replace it with the one you are copying.
3. Per person pricing sending to Airbnb
Per Person Pricing feature for Airbnb integration has been enabled. If you set different prices for specific number of guests in SuperControl, it will be available on your Airbnb listing. This will apply for number of guests between 1 and 15. Any pricing beyond 16 or more people will be calculated at your maximum capacity pricing due to limitations from Airbnb.
This change also means that we can extend how long we send availability for in the future. Instead of the 12 months that we currently send, we can extend this to show 18 months in the future!
Risk-free cancellation for you and your guests
SuperControl has teamed up with Rental Guardian to bring you Master Cancel. It’s a fully-flexible, no questions asked, risk-free cancellation policy that is typically seen in the hotel sector. It has never been available to holiday rental operators before.
Master Cancel is set to rock the self-catering world. It’s a first in the industry and it is available exclusively to SuperControllers so we’re excited to bring you this ground-breaking game changer. This is why ...
