1. Is it possible to improve the interface so that a user does not have to move off keyboard to move to the next page. As I currently experience, once you have entered the first page information (Step 1 - Dates) to move to the (Step 2 - Select Rooms) you need to move the mouse to the "Next" button. Modern windows technology uses shortcuts such as Alt+N to move to Next, or ALT+B to move Back.

2. Is it possible to change the status of a new booking to reflect its updated status without having to exit and go back into the booking?

I hope to hear back from you soon.

Hi Patrick(?),

Thanks for the questions/suggestions on managing hotel bookings.

1. During a booking pressing Alt + N moves to the next step and Alt + A moves to the previous step. I've just tried this on v6.8 and it appears to be working as I'd expect.

2. At present we don't have an option to change the Booking Status during a booking. You can set the 'default' that will be applied to new bookings under Configure > Advanced > Booking Status. You can change the guest's Booking Status in the 'Reservation Summary' (double-click on a reservation from the Simple Calendar).

I know we recently added the ability to modify the Booking Status during a booking to the Cloud Edition though. So it should be possible to also include on the Desktop Edition. I will add it to our update list for you.

Regards, John

Thanks John, shortcut is very useful.
Are there other shortcuts available?

You're most welcome.

Some menu items have shortcuts, you can see those listed when you drop down the menus. So for instance, Ctrl + M to find a Hotel Customer/Guest.

Many individual 'buttons' also have shortcuts but by default Windows 10 hides them. When shown they are indicated by an underscore _, so for example, if you had the underscore under the letter N on a button then it can be activated by pressing Alt + N.

If you want the shortcuts to show then you would have to change that setting in Windows. To do so:
1) Open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Ease of Access Center\Make the keyboard easier to use.
2) Check the option 'Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys'. Click OK to save.
3) You'll need to restart iMagic Hotel Reservation, button shortcuts should then show.

Regards, John
