    Hi there Mewsers!

    You’ve asked and we’ve listened.

    We upgraded the action log to make it more detailed and easier to use.

    Below are some of the additional details that we’ve added.

    Before, when a reservation moved to a different room, you couldn’t see which room it was in originally—now you’ll always see exactly how the reservation looked before and after each change.

    We’ve enhanced updates for products. You’ll now be able trace for example, the additions of order items as well as the price adjustments made to your products.

    And finally on the pricing side, no need for a calculator! You can now monitor and report on changes to prices with the both net and gross values, as well as the affects the changes you’ve made have on taxes.

    We will continue working on updates to the action log for different sections of the system. Stay tuned for more!

  2. For guests that are traveling with children, it is nice to give them a discounted price for some stay products, such as breakfast or excursions. Implementation of pricing for children can help to alleviate some of these costs for your customers and make pricing more attractive for families.

    Hey Mewsers, Good News! We started researching and collating information about this feature request and Age-based pricing is now on our roadmap as one of our priorities for 2021.

    There will be several iterations of releases throughout this year as it is a complex subject that we are tackling. Including pricing, stay products, city taxes, and many more. We will continue to update you through this feature request but remember to check out our product webinars every month (the next one being tomorrow – https://www.mews.com/en/resources/webinars/product-webinar-march-2021) and also keep an eye on our release notes (https://www.mews.li/app/release-notes).

    Thanks for your contribution to this request and we will continue to keep you posted.

    The Mews Product Team

  3. Add a remove/delete option for the items you add in the billing section. Rigth now the only option to remove/delete it is to post another item/service/product (in negative).

    Hello Mewsers,

    We are very happy to inform you that we have released the new group billing screen!

    On this screen you will be able to remove items that have accidentally been added to a bill.

    We are currently working on the ability to automatically post negative charges (rebates) with a single click.

    Please note this functionality is only available on the new billing screen which will continue to run along side the current billing module.

    Keep an eye on our release notes page for more!

  4. As housekeeping complete their daily tasks, they often add special items to prepare for arriving guests. For this reason, it's very important that housekeeping staff is up to date on any notes or special instructions that come along with each assignment. Adding customer notes within the Commander application could provide much needed insight, so your staff will always be informed of important facts and ready to welcome your guests properly.

  5. When dealing with a booking extension ( checked-in) Mews automatically changes the room allocation to a new vacant room. This does not make any sense as the guest is already in house, and Mews should not be able to change by itself an In-house reservation. This is leading into a lot of check-ins into occupied rooms and therefore, guest complaints.

  6. Groups configuration We need to have Group blocks i.e. *When we assign a booking code to a group booking, and the clients will reserve the rooms in the IBE, the PMS should understand that the room reserved need to be picked up from the block. Groups configuration We need to have Group blocks / allotments i.e. *To be able to use billing instructions (routing) in the group block, that will update all reservations

    Hi Mewsers!

    We are very happy to announce that we are beginning to work on adding group block functionality to Mews. If you have an integrated system you can begin making use of block functionality through the Connector API.

    Over the coming months we will begin adding block functionality to the PMS. If you are interested in learning more, and if you would like to share your feedback on our current prototypes, please let me know in the comments section or by responding to this email.

    Kind regards,
    Aldair

  8. Proforma invoices are a great tool to provide customers with a projected price for any accommodation or services. After these are created and sent to guests, it is currently not possible to recover them for future reference. Rather, by using a proforma invoice tracker, these documents to be available by staff after initial creation as needed.

    Hey Mewsers, thank you for your upvotes on this idea. We started working on evaluating and solutioning this idea and will post updates on its progress soon.

    This does not yet mean that we will be able to build this, but we are certainly looking into how it could be built inside Mews.

    More updates coming soon

  9. Instead of displaying the creation date, it would make more sense for our guests to see the consumption date so that when they check their bill they can quickly identify when certain items were used.

  10. A hotel is not just rooms and beds. There are many resources in each hotel. There can be co-working spaces, parking lots, conference rooms, kitchens, sport courts, bikes or boats, sports equipment etc. (the list could be literally endless) and we want to manage them in the system and offer them to the guests just like we offer rooms and beds today. It would allow us to boost the non-accommodation revenue and diversify the hotel's business.

    Hello,

    I’m happy to announce that it is now possible to create multiple bookable services in Mews and start offering offices, meeting rooms, desks or parking spots to your guests.

    There is a dedicated timeline and reporting for each new service. Services can be offered on daily or overnight basis.

    The process of creation of new bookable services is described in these two guides:

    https://mews.force.com/s/article/create-new-bookable-services?language=en_US

    https://mews.force.com/s/article/set-up-a-bookable-service?language=en_US&Language=en_US

    The team is currently shifting its focus towards multiple time units functionality, which should unlock e.g. the possibility to create and efficiently manage monthly reservations.

    Best regards,

    Martin Kucera
    Product manager
    Mews

  11. By adding an additional privilege to employee profiles, managers or admins could remove access to these reports for any individuals that do not need to see it.

    We’re developing some simple permissions to hide these reports from employee profiles:

    Accounting Report
    Manager Report
    Merchant Balance Report

    Please let us know if you have questions how this will work. :)

  12. Just to add room number by the client name on billing screen when room is in a group. Client wants to pay all bills in his room so I could see not just the names but all profiles in the same room by room number as I can't always know what the names are

  13. Include on the Mailing list a message to send to customers that had the credit card transaction declined. The mail is to inform them that the credit card transaction for the payment of the booking has been declined and asking them to update the credit card information within 24 hours to avoid the cancelation of the booking. Include on the mail a link where the customer can access their profile and update the payment information.

    Good news! We are currently working on bringing you the feature which can solve the issue described above. It will work as follows:

    1. In Commander, property can newly send payment request from guest profile > Payments tab

    2. Property can choose amount, currency, expiration date, and time of the request, personal message to the customer.

    3. Once the payment request is created in Mews, email is sent to the guest together with all info from 2.

    4. Email takes guest to the screen where he/she fills in payment card details. Guest is charged directly.

    5. Property is notified when payment request is fulfilled or expired via Task.

    And that’s it. How do you like it? Feel free to share your feedback with us.

    We are still exploring how the reporting for such a feature should work. Would you like to have a report for this feature? If so, who…

  14. We need that in a reservation from an specific travel agency all its charges automatically goes to the company bill (or the paymaster of this company), so the balance in the guest account is 0. Some travel agencies charges themselves to the guest and manually we have to move the charges to the company bill or the paymaster of this company, so it does not allow to work with properties with reduced staff and automatic kiosk check-in (as the balance of the guest will not be 0, but the the guest has already payed to the travel agency)

    We’re building a feature that lets you automatically redirect products from guest bills to company bills. This will not support routing to a paymaster profile yet, but it may already help you.

  15. Actually you can create a proforma invoice and print it as PDF, but it is not stored in Mews. So, if you like to find it weeks later, there is no chance. E.g. if you like to know on which guest you have created it.

  17. As housekeeping complete their daily cleaning schedule, they are often responsible for restocking minibar products or other room amenities. Therefore, adding stay product details within the Commander application could provide stocking information and reporting capabilities so that each room is prepared exactly right for the next arriving guest.

    Hello,

    I’m happy to inform you that we are currently working on the minibar functionality in the Commander app. It will allow the housekeeping to add minibar items (and other stay products) to guest’s bill.

    I will inform you as soon as we have the feature released. If you wish to participate in our beta testing program, please, reach out to me via martin.kucera@mews.com. Thank you!

    Best regards,

    Martin Kucera

  18. Can we please get a simple number of nights count when viewing/managing a reservation? As simple as placing it next to the "nights" section would be immensely helpful when working with guests, particularly guests who have more lengthy stays. Currently, the only option Mews offers is to manually count or do math, which takes up uneccessary time while interacting with guests, and gets frustrating for such a simple and essential part of that interaction.

  20. Products with a price that's relative to the net rate can be charged per person, per night, and per person per night.
