Here’s what we’ve been working on at SevenRooms over the past month:
Here’s What’s Going On
1. Now, You Can Clone Shift & Access Rules
The days of having to add new shifts and access rules from scratch were time-consuming.
But now, they’re over.
In addition to editing or deleting a shift or access rule, you can now choose to “Clone.”
Here’s what it looks like:
When you clone a shift or access rule, we carry over settings like days of week, time, interval, seating areas, capacity, and payment policy for you — so you don’t have to on your own.
Two quick things to note:
- Because you are cloning for a new placement, you will add date yourself. It will not carry over from the shift or access rule that you are cloning.
- The clone you create will have “Copy of” at the beginning of the rule name. You will need to edit this to a new name.
2. You Can Now Customize Your Cancellation Policy
Before, your cancellation policy was the same for every shift and access rule that required a credit card.
Now, it doesn’t have to be. We’ve added the ability to customize it.
Similar to how you can edit a booking policy for any shift or access rule, now you can customize the cancellation policy for any rule with a credit card involved.
Use Case: Let’s say you require credit cards for normal reservations but allow cancellations up to 24 hours in advance, after which you auto-charge a late cancellation fee. But for the holidays, you only allow cancellations up to 72 hours in advance. You can now create and display different policies for each.
3. We Launched a Google Integration!
Truth: Your guests are googling you to find more about your menu, your ambiance, and your availability.
News: We integrated with Google! So that when your guests search for you, they can search for — and book — a table without ever leaving Search or Maps.
