Cloudbeds is releasing an update to the myfrontdesk system in March 2018. This update includes improvements to adding fees with taxes applied, folio, booking engine and reporting.
In a reservation or a house account, users can manually add fees. In previous versions, Cloudbeds users would need to manually calculate tax into the fee’s total (if a fee has an applicable tax). This release ensures that if a manually added fee has an applicable tax, the total is calculated automatically.

In the booking engine, a traveler must choose a country before they get a list of states or counties to choose from. If a traveler does not select a country and they click the State/County drop down, they’ll just see a blank space. This could confuse the guest. Instead, these travelers will now be instructed to choose a country, which they may have neglected to add by accident.
This release fixes a bug where the cancellation date was left out of the report. Now the cancellation date column is included in the report table and report file exported to pdf/excel.
