Pronestor Room & Catering - Updates and New Features

January 2018 (from 6.0.56 onwards)

Restricting delivery of catering and equipment resources to specific rooms

Resource owners are now able to restrict delivery of catering and equipment resources to specific rooms by editing the individual resources.

Disallowing explicit pick-up of catering and equipment resources

Resource owners are now able to make users unable to explicitly select certain catering and/or equipment resources for pick-up by editing the individual resources.

Did you forget to include a new resource category in your reports?


Should you forget to update the resource filter of the report you use with new resource categories, we will make you aware of it in the Resources tab in Administration. 


October 2017 (from 6.0.52 onwards)

Improved overview of your workday


We have made it easier for you to get an overview of the entire workday by focusing the Facilities time to span the workday hours as defined in Administration --> Settings --> Other settings. 

September 2017 (from 6.0.50 onwards)

Filtered away all the rooms?

We have implemented a message in case you filter away all the rooms in the list.

Delivery note can now be filled in on a per serving basis

Instead of filling in the delivery note for each individual booking, you can now just fill in the note for the serving as a whole when the delivery note is required.


August 2017 (from 6.0.48 onwards)

Change the background image of the Room & Catering booking workflow

We've made it possible for Administrators to choose between four different background images for the Room & Catering booking workflow. Just go to Administration, choose Settings and the Other settings. Here you'll find "Themes" where you can choose between the different layouts. 


New warning icon in Pronestor Outlook add-in

The previous red warning icon in Pronestor's Outlook add-in had a makeover to soften the visual voice of the "Important message".


New report type: Order summary

We've added the new "Order summary" report type primarily to help kitchen and delivery personnel arrange servings individually. The order summaries can also be used as a ordering receipt for the booker to be delivered with their respective serving.


Closing days for Catering


Catering may not always be available due to holidays and the like, so we've made it possible for the Catering manager to set up location-specific dates on which Catering is unavailable. Closing days can be set in the Administration. Go to Resources and it's found below the catering categories. 

New Location selection


The Location selection has been moved out of the Filter to the top left corner of your booking workflow. 

Extended Help Page


We've omitted the old Help-icon and replaced it with Help-tab in the right side of your booking workflow. System administrator(s) can now set up the contact information (phone and email) of internal Pronestor-relevant stakeholders as well as a link to a customized Help Page. Just go to Administration, Settings and choose Help settings. 

May 2017 (from 6.0.44 onwards)

Attendee Picker and Guest Import converted to default features

Our new AttendeePicker and Guest Import features have been through a betatesting process and are now enabled for all customers.

Checkout improvements

The "Complete booking" button in Checkout has been made sticky to ma ke available to the user without scroll. The Checkout header color has been changed to avoid confusion as to its function. A [X] has been added for improved usability.

Pronestor supports change of recurrence patterns in Outlook

We have introduced support for changing recurrence patterns for meeting series in Outlook.

"Reservation title required" setting added to Administration

It is now possible for the Administrator to prompt users for a meeting title in the Room & Catering workflow by enabling the new setting, "Meeting title is required", in Administration --> Settings --> Meeting settings.

Attendees badge counter accumulates named and unnamed attendees


The counter in the Attendees badge now accumulates named and unnamed attendees for the meeting. 


February 2017 (from 6.0.39 onwards)

Helpsite is accessible from workflow

The helpsite can be accessed directly from the Room & Catering workflow if you need help.

Catering items are listed per serving in Checkout

The catering overview in your Checkout has been organized in servings, so you can easily see when you'll get the individual deliveries.



Dirty form validation has been introduced

If you have made changes to a reservation and try to leave, we'll ask you to confirm. We just want to make sure that you don't have to start over again.


Date-picker has been enhanced

The date-picker, as we call it, now displays current date and selected dates to make it easier for you to navigate.

Improvements on mail notifications


When you receive an email from Room & Catering, we want to make sure that you can easily access the reservation. The reservation ID link is now a link directly into your reservation. 

We also include your booking notes in the emails - for both you and the resource manager. 


Notification handling improved + notification box at the bottom of the screen can now be closed

The notifications you get during a workflow have been reduced, and you now have the possibility of closing the notification box.

The filter has been improved

We've improved the overall usability of the filter.


Coexistence and synchronization improvements

The Exchange integration has been greatly improved.


We're continuously working on fixing bugs and improving the solution, so the listing above is only the tip of the iceberg.
