New tax rates, ‘valid from’ date for price lists, labels and external accommodation

We would like to share with you the latest features and improvements of the July 2020 Update.

Temporary reduction of tax rates

The new tax rates came into force on 1 July 2020. If you have decided not to adjust your prices, no changes to the SeminarDesk settings are necessary from your side. 

To easily update new price details or copy existing price lists, please read this Help Center article. (German)

New function: "Valid from" date for price lists

To make price lists more flexible, you can now first define a “valid from” date and then easily copy and adjust the price details within a price list. 

Labels for grouping events, dates, bookings and profiles

Previously, when creating an event, the event type and topic could be named using a text field. You can now also define and assign a label to an event.

The entries that are available here can be set up under the menu item “Administration – Labels”.

Note: In the coming updates we plan to replace the event type and theme with these labels and their freely configurable categories. No manual intervention on your part is necessary here.

Outlook: External Accommodation

Under the new menu item “Administration – External accommodations”, external hotel partners including address can now be created. This function is currently still under development. In the future, it will be possible to assign external accommodations to events and then assign them to guests bookings.

We will inform you as soon as this function is fully available with one of the upcoming updates!

As always, we are looking forward to your feedback!

Best wishes from
Christoph, Simon and Jan.
