New Releases Fireside Chat: November 2019
Thank you to everyone who participated in our November new feature fireside chat on Facebook Live. We introduced a lot of great features last month and had a blast chatting about them. If you missed the live feed, don’t worry. I’ll link to it below. But first, let’s chat about those new features.
Embeddable form to now offer captcha
In order to help prevent our customers from receiving spam off of their lead forms, our embeddable form now offers captcha. For those that don’t know, a captcha is a program used to distinguish between human and machine input. I’m sure you’ve experienced captcha when filling out forms online. You’d recognize it as the “I’m not a robot” checkboxes.
Moving forward, all new Tripleseat lead forms will have captcha turned on by default. For customers with established lead forms, you can easily turn captcha on, just follow these simple steps: Settings > Lead Forms > Edit (next to the lead form you’d like to add captcha to) > scroll down and check off Enable Spam Detection on Embedded Forms.
Master doc update on the booking level
Before this update, when creating contracts or proposals that are for the entire booking, you first had to select at least one event for the master documents to launch. Now you can create master docs for the entire booking without selecting any specific events.
New account and contact search capability
Thanks to this update, instead of having to search for an existing contact, and then search for the existing account, you just have to search once for both! Being able to see the contact and account at the same time will prevent user error, therefore ensuring a clean CRM database.
VENUES by Tripleseat Upgrades
VENUES has introduced new features to the overall site and to the individual venue listings that will fully enhance the way a party planner can find a venue and the way a venue can market itself. VENUES by Tripleseat brings a new competitive advantage to the market by providing the most user-friendly experience to the thousands of prospects searching for a venue to host their next private event. For more information on VENUES and its new upgrades, check out this blog post: Drive Leads to Your Venue with VENUES by Tripleseat and VENUES Sponsored Listings.
You can also now write blog posts to add to your VENUES listing. This is a really great feature and an added benefit to make sure your listing is optimized for the best search results. Need blog-worthy ideas? You could write a post about your background. Tell your potential clients why and how you became an events professional. Knowing the real you could sway them to choose your venue out of the hundreds out there to host their event. You could also highlight a successful event you hosted. Show them how amazing their event could be if they booked it at your venue. To create a blog post on your VENUES listing simply go to Settings > Public Listings > Edit (next to the venue’s listing you want to add a blog to) > then click on the Blog tab > add your content and save.
And last but certainly not least … mass print is now available on master or event documents!
You asked and we answered. This highly anticipated feature release has become a reality. Now you can easily print more than one document layout at a time.
Here’s how it works: Once a document is created, a print button will appear. Click the print button and you’ll get a pop-up screen listing all of the documents associated with that booking. You can select the documents you want to print and click the print button at the bottom of the pop-up. Your documents will be exported in a PDF link via email, just like the mass print option does from the event or booking tabs. You’ll then be able to open the ZIP file and print all of your documents with one click.
Check out our quick video tutorial on how to mass print below.
