Software Releases and Updates

Bookable version 2022.1a has been released

Bookable v2022.1a has been released and our customers can now take advantage of the latest version.

v2022.1a contains nearly 100 new features and enhancements including the new Sub-Purposes capability.  As one of the largest changes we have made in recent versions, we are now allowing more than one Purpose with a single booking. This means for events that might have different rates for bump in/out days, or different rates for rehearsals vs
performance dates, these can now be handled by using ‘Sub-Purposes’.

Within the Events module, enhancement have been made to better handle Courses. These enhancements include the ability to distinguish different event date ranges in a single event, e.g. Term 1, Term 2 etc. and to pro-rata pricing if someone joins a class after the course has commenced.

More information and detailed release notes can be found in our Bookable Knowledgebase.
