Update 1.14.6 - Lodgit Desk now with DATEV export

For a lot of our users, this is the most important new feature: Lodgit Desk now offers a financial export that is compatible with DATEV. How is that different from the export feature we had until now?

The DATEV-compatible export feature is only for users of the bookkeeping software DATEV because it is geared heavily towards their specific import requirements. For example, DATEV expects a certain tax key (instead of the tax rate or amount); you can review and change those keys in the Preferences.

One thing about invoice numbers: DATEV only allows for invoice numbers to have a maximum of 12 characters. If you invoice numbers are longer, this may cause problems during the data import. You won't be able to change any existing invoice numbers; but you can still talk to your tax expert about possibly changing the numbering system.

The export using the debit.credit method is meant for programs such as MonkeyOffice or Lexware.

Automatic locking after creation of offers/confirmations

Bookings can easily be moved around in the reservation schedule by clicking and dragging them, but that's not always a good thing. It's just as easy to move a booking you didn't mean to. That's why we created the "lock" feature. As long as a booking is locked, it cannot be moved, shortened or lengthened in the reservation schedule.

With the new update, locking a booking will get easier: Whenever you create an offer or a confirmation, you can go to "Options" have the booking automatically locked as soon as the offer or confirmation is created. The respective window will remember your setting, so you only have to check this box once to easily protect your bookings from being moved around.

Improvements in the PROTEL interface

We recently found out that not all EPOS systems provides read the file inhouse.dat the same way: Some expect the file to end with a carriage return and if that's not included, they'll simply ignore the last line. That's why we've now included the option to have the file inhouse.dat end with a carriage return - depending on what your EPOS system needs.

We have also made sure that the file inhouse.dat is updated more often. In addition to being updated every 2 minutes, it will now also be updated when:

  • the booking status is changed from or to "Checked In"
  • the time frame of a checked-in booking is changed
  • the main contact of a checked-in booking is changed
  • the arriving guests of a checked-in booking is changed

Some smaller things

Just like with any update we release, we've also added a few changes and fixes that will make your daily tasks a little easier:

  • The reservation schedule can now be smoothly pulled to the left and right again.
  • The rounding process for the prices was adjusted so that errors for large invoices with many small items will still have proper taxes.
  • In the invoice window it's now even more intuitive to use a number of a previously cancelled invoice.
  • When exporting a list on a Windows computer, you can now once again use special characters.
  • ...
