Release notes for 1.18.9 and 1.18.10 (05/23/2018)
[NEW] New, predefined, intelligent group "Interested guests", which lists all guests who are not yet recipients of an invoice or a receipt, nor have been assigned to a booking as main guest or co-traveller.
[CHANGED] The default storage location when starting Lodgit Desk for the first time is now directly the user directory and no longer the document folder in the user directory. This should prevent the databases from accidentally ending up in the cloud (e.g. partially when updating to macOS High Sierra), which leads to enormous performance losses.
[CHANGED] The location for GoBD export, accounting export (Datev) and PDF document creation is now by default directly the user directory and no longer the documents folder in the user directory.
[CHANGED] The folder for ApplicationData (Mac: /Users/UserName/Library/Application Support /Lodgit; Win: \Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Lodgit) is no longer checked for the existence of a database when a database is created and opened during the start of Lodgit Desk.
[CHANGED] The country assignments predefined by AVS (AVS country ID to country ISO code) are now also taken into account for the Meldelcient AVS. A manual assignment is therefore not necessary for the country assignments that have already been preset.
[CHANGED] Changeover from http to https at IncomingSoft.
[FIXED] When sending registration form data to Feratel via the obsolete "Meldelcient" interface, the error "ImportPMS instead of municipality" occurred.
