This week was mostly focused on cleaning up several issues and making improvements to emails — but we did manage to sneak in the start of our consigned vehicles support.
A lot of our larger users manage rentals on behalf of private owners. It’s a great arrangement, but requires some unique reporting and tracking features to make sure your private owners are kept up to date on their vehicles usage. We’re hard at work on some robust reporting for consigned vehicles, but in the meantime we’ve rolled out an option that lets you set who the owner of a particular vehicle is.
For now, this is a great way to keep the contact information available for a vehicle’s owner at all times, but we’re working on custom reporting and owner reservations that’ll make managing your consigned vehicles a breeze. Stay tuned!
Small Changes & Bugfixes
- [Update] Emails are less annoying, but more useful. You’ll get alerts on new requests & messages, but no more pickup/dropoff notifications. Those were wicked annoying for users with more than a few RVs — Enjoy your clutter-free inbox.
- [Update] Added support for GVWR, dry weight and amps on vehicles
- [Update] Made reservations editable after pickup/dropoff. This was a huge hassle for some users, so thanks for hanging with us while we got it resolved!
- [Update] Added support for archiving messages in the inbox
- [Update] Improved the default sorting for vehicles, customers and reservations
- [Update] We now show late arrivals/departures on the main dashboard
- [Change] Rentals is now Vehicles, to make it more clear
- [Change] Added support for Utility Trailers
- [Bugfix] In some cases, phone numbers weren’t being stored for new customers. All fixed.
- [Bugfix] Made it easier to upload license photos on new customers
- [Bugfix] Some reservations would always report “Waiting for owner” on the quotes/reservations pages. This has been fixed — Thanks to everyone who helped us track this one down.
- [Bugfix] Deleting RVs wasn’t removing the listing completely — Now they’re gone for good
