Friday Features: Permissions, Manifest Filters, Campaign Blackout Dates, & More

Happy spring! Check out what’s new at FareHarbor these last few months with the return of Friday Features.

Fine-grained control over what your users can do

Custom user permissions

In March we released custom user permission groups, which allow you to control what your users can see and do in the Dashboard.

Permission groups can control both what your company staff can do, as well as your affiliates who might also be using FareHarbor. This means that different users will only have access to what’s relevant to them, keeping your information more secure and your company more efficient and accurate.

Groups are customizable to fit your needs; just let us know if you need a new group added or an existing one changed.

Filter manifests and calendars

You can now filter manifests, making it easy to narrow down the list of bookings to only the ones you need. Filter by contact name, check-in status, number of customers, amount due, even custom fields.

We also added a new filter menu to the Bookings calendar. In addition to all the old options, there’s now the option to filter your view to only availabilities with a certain number of spaces left. It’s great for quickly finding open availabilities for larger groups:

Plus, all of these new filter options can be saved with your custom manifest or calendar, so you can come back to them any time.

Campaign blackout and valid dates

We also added options to include valid or blackout dates for promotional and discount codes. This is especially helpful if you only want codes to be redeemable within a certain date range, or if you want to exclude certain dates like holidays. You can even make a code valid or invalid dynamically based on a number of days before a tour starts.

Check out the help page to learn more about how valid and blackout dates work.

And more

As always, we’ve made a lot of smaller fixes and improvements, as well as ongoing work on some big new projects. (More info on those coming soon.) Here are some of the smaller things we added lately:

  • A new item embed so you can put a grid of any of your FareHarbor items directly on your website. Let us know if you’d like to use it on your site and we’ll help you with the integration. New item embed

  • See a preview of what you can book from the flyout on the Bookings calendar. The numbers on the right (“12” in this example) show the maximum number of each customer type that you could book directly. flyout preview
