Release Notes March 11, 2019

Advanced filters on collection pages

We’ve upgraded collection pages to optionally display filters for things like tour duration, departure date, location, or any custom field.This is especially useful if your collections have a large number of tours, as these filters make it easier for customers to find the tours they are looking for.

Edit a collection page in the back-office to give this feature a test-drive. After enabling a few filters, view the collection page on the storefront – the filters you’ve enabled should be visible on the left-side of the page.

Mobikwik Payment Gateway Integration

We’ve recently integrated the Mobikwik Payment Gateway  with the Vacation Labs booking engine. If you have an existing Mobikwik merchant account, setting this up should be a breeze, and you can read more about it at the Mobikwik payment gateway integration page.

With this integration, we now have a total of 24 payment processors integrated.

Improvements to the website builder

We have made connecting your Google Account with your Vacation Labs account much simpler. We need limited access to your Google Account for some features such as Google Search Console (for website ownership verification), Google Drive (for mass data import/export), or Google Analytics. Instead of going through the authentication step every time to use these features, you can now connect your Google Account only once by visiting Settings > Apps > Google > Connect Google Account.. Similarly, if you wish to revoke access, head over to the same page and click the “Disconnect Google Account” button.

Audit Log Now Available for More Actions

We’ve always maintained a record of all changes made to bookings and payments in your Vacation Labs account, which we consider as critical transaction data. This includes which user made the change, at what time, and exactly what changed.

We’ve now expanded this to tours, addons, collections,  coupons/promotions, flexi-payments, and agent lists, as well. This means, if you’d like to know “who changed what”, on critical sections of your website, you simply need to drop an email to support@vacationlabs.com – and we should be able to give you this data in no time. In the future, we’ll be making this even simpler by displaying the audit logs in the backoffice UI itself.

Other bug-fixes and minor improvements

As part of our ongoing effort towards better internalization, the following have been fixed and improved to make your platform experience much more easier and enjoyable:

Fixed an issue were booking attempt emails were not sent for some bookings.
Better error handling while preparing the i18n sheet, when a json field had a null value

Upgraded PayTM payment-gateway integration to use new API endpoints provided by PayTM.
