  5. The Daily Operating Report was incorrectly calculating MTD Totals
  6. When using the Reference field, when making a payment, the user entered reference was not displaying on folio as it was being overridden by the Payment type; display line will now show Payment type and any reference the user enters in
  7. When using the Rate Wizard, the Auto-log off feature would take effect when in the middle of work

Update 8.21.0.2 - April 8th, 2016

  1. When posting a charge, the tax calculation was not displaying in the charge window, However, the taxes would indeed post to the folio; change was made to show the tax calculation, during the posting process
  2. When posting a payment that was equal to or greater than $1,000.00, the comma in the value was causing an issue
  3. When making a "Cash" Type or "Check/Debit Card" Type payment, the posting would show the Transaction Code but not the payment reference
  4. For properties that use the CRS module in RoomKey, the change to Cash Transaction Codes was causing the CRS Mode not to load

Update 8.21.0.3 - April 19th, 2016

  1. On the Routing Tab when making a reservation or a Group, the "All" Transaction Codes can be selected again
  2. The deposit that included "1st Night Room Charge + Guest Service Charges" was not calculating the deposit to include Guest Services.
  3. On the Tape Chart, when clicking on 1 reservation to another, the Reg Card/Guest Folio/Confirmation printer, if clicked, would display the last guest , unless user clicked twice on second reservation
