Kahupdate 2

We’ve just uploaded another weekly update to Kahu, including a few bug fixes and the following new features:

Automatic closure of tickets

We had a lot of requests for this feature from support teams. Tickets in the resolved state are now automatically closed after a week. An email is sent to the person who raised the ticket, just in case there is still a problem.

Better navigation on booking pages

Each of the booking pages gets five new navigation buttons to make it easier to move around. In left-to-right order these are previous week, previous daynext daynext week, and jump to today. The selected day is also highlighted in week views, making it easier to see where you’re looking.

Delete and deactivate people

Last week we added the ability to delete teams and resources; this week we’re adding the ability to delete people. To avoid confusion, we’ve made it so you can’t delete a person if they own any bookings, have raised any tickets, or have authored any ticket comments. Instead, we’ve added the option to deactivate a person’s account.

Inactive people cannot log in, and they don’t show up on thePeople page unless you are an administrator. However, they still appear on bookings, tickets and the like.

What are we currently working on? Well, it’s a biggie. We’re updating our in-house tools for doing mass-imports bookings, resources and people. This should make it far easier for schools to do bulk imports of data from Management Information Systems such asSIMS and Facility.

The tools should be available in the next week or so. In the meantime, as ever, please get in touch if you need help with your data.

It’s been a week since BETT and already we’re seeing lots of sign-ups to Kahu. We decided to start this news feed to keep everyone up-to-date with the new features we’re adding and with our plans for the future.

Today we launched an update with a number of new features:

Fortnightly repeating events

We had a lot of interest at BETT from schools with fortnightly repeating timetables. So much interest, in fact, that we added this feature on the train on the way back to the office. Timetable managers and booking coordinators now have access to this repeat type when creating/editing a booking series.

Delete resources and teams

Administrators can now see little trash can icons next to each item on the resource and team lists. Clicking on the icon takes you to a confirmation page where the consequences of deleting the item are laid out in plain English.

Speed improvements on all booking pages

We’ve been working hard on our database queries, optimising things here and there to make bookings pages between 20 and 30% faster. There’s more to come in this department too.

This news feed on the dashboard!
