Spring 2013 Enhancements to Booking Buddy

Postby CampADK » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:29 pm

I've updated the Booking Buddy to provide some replacement features once the camping season is close or has started for the season:

This Includes...

1. Show recent reservations or cancellations - this is useful to check reservation activity as well as be alerted of any sites that have recently been cancelled, and are therefore now available.

2. Show upcoming weekend availability.

3. Quick tool to provide availability for selected number of nights and date range.

Once I have thoroughly tested this feature, I'll next be adding the ability for Forum members to set email alerts so you will be notified immediately of any sites that have been put back in the availability pool.

Check it out and let me know what you think (suggestions/improvements always appreciated!). See http://fishcreekpond.com/bookingbuddy.php

I've added a few features to the Booking Buddy.

You can now see:

- recent cancellation activity
- recent reservation activity
- upcoming weekend availability
- July statistics
- August statistics
- find open dates for select date range and nights

Interestingly July is now 95.9% booked to capacity!
August is always less and is currently at 83.6%, mainly since campers tend to book less towards the end of the month since kids are going back to school.

Looks like we have some technical difficulty with the Booking Buddy cancellation / reservation tracker.

Sorry about that folks, but I'll be sure to check out the problem when I return from camping Next Wednesday!
