  • Show the purchase currencies in your program

You work in multi-devise? This feature will help you daily! You can now view your project currency and your catalogue currency in your programme:

  • Set a default currency for your projects

You can assign a default currency for your projects, which will then be the sales currency. This means that your projects will automatically have the currency assigned to them (which you can then change if necessary):

  • Customise the name of the option mentions

By default, you can add an "Option" or "On demand" to a product, which means that it will not be included in the final sale price.

You can now add as many terms as you like, such as "Free" or "Gift" for example. You have to go on the custom fields window:

  • Additional variables available

Several variables have been added to model your documents.

There's a new section of variables available: those relating to passenger information! You'll be able to display general information about the project's travellers, as well as custom fields:

Another section has been added: the Supplier section, which lets you search for all the information in the supplier file directly.

Finally, there are variables relating to the price of a stage:

  • $$steps.1.price.[sales]$$ -> sales price of the step

  • $$steps.1.price.[purchase]$$ -> purchase price of the step

  • Improved quantities

Multiple quantities are now easier to read, and you can display them directly in your quotes and invoices. They allow you to have distinctive columns to manage the number of nights and the number of rooms, for example.
To find out all you need to know, go to your Help Centre and type "Multiple quantities".


August

  • Import your travaller information in 1 click using .csv import

You can now fill in all your traveller information using the information contained in your Excel files. Handy if you have large groups of participants!

To do this, go to the three dots and then "Import (CSV)":

To convert your Excel file into a .csv file that can be imported into Ezus.

  • Display the "Option" column to add options to your products

Thanks to this new column, you can add the words "option" or "on request" more quickly and easily. To add it, go to the 3 dots and "Modify columns".

  • Automatically create a payment associated with an invoice

When you add a customer invoice in Finance > Sales, you can now automatically associate a payment of the same amount with it via this tick box:

You can also automatically set whether or not the box is ticked in your Settings > Budget :

  • Automatic recalculation of product prices in your standard stages

If you update the prices of your products in your catalogue, and these products are part of standard stages, you can update all the prices at once by clicking on this button:

  • Re-order your destinations and sub-destinations

In your Destinations catalogue, you now have a button that lets you rearrange your destinations and sub-destinations in any order you like:

  • Filter your sales invoices by VAT status

A new filter is now available for filtering your sales invoices, allowing you to classify them according to their VAT status:

  • Import your .doc and .msg documents into your projects

In the document section of your projects, you can now import documents in .doc and .msg formats in addition to the other formats already accepted:


July

  • Our public API is out! πŸŽ‰

Thanks to the hard work of our technical team, we're very proud to present our Ezus public API. If you're not familiar with the term, an API allows applications to communicate with each other and exchange services or data. In other words, you can now connect external applications to Ezus and vice versa.

You can consult our documentation for full technical information. If you have any questions, please contact your account manager.

  • Adjust the size of the client area cover video on mobile or tablet devices

You can now choose to adjust the size of the video that appears in your client area. The aim is for the video to adapt automatically if your customer watches it on a smartphone or tablet.

On the client area page, scroll down until you find the advanced settings:

To get an idea of the different renderings, go to this page.

  • And lots of other things you may not see, but which contribute to the general improvement of the platform

As well as the new features that are released week by week, there are also a whole host of ongoing improvements to the tool. In July alone, there were 35! The list would be too long to name them all, but it's all these little things that make the platform even more powerful.

And of course, if you'd like to share any ideas for improvement, you can do so via your Profile > Feedback! It's thanks to you and your feedback that we're able to make the platform grow a little bit more every day.

β˜€οΈ The whole Ezus team wishes you a great summer!


June

  • Add a file to a custom field in a stage

In Settings > Custom fields > Steps, you can now create fields with a "File" field type, which allows you to associate documents (passport, medical certificate, etc.) with a custom field.

  • Compress your media if it is larger than 5MB

If you import a photo that is too large (> 5 MB), you can compress it for use in Ezus. This saves you having to use an external compression tool.

  • Improved traveller list management

You now have the option of bulk deleting or bulk resetting the list of your travellers, using tick boxes.

Make sure you know the difference:

- Delete = deletes the lines and sets the number of travellers to 0 for the entire project

- Reset = retains the same number of passengers but deletes the information entered.

  • New "Net margin rate" column

In a project > budget view, you can add a new "Net margin rate" column for all your product lines.

  • Improvements to supplier invoice payments

When you add a payment to a purchase invoice, you can now enter a % of the amount instead of the numerical value (e.g. 50% of the amount instead of €400).

You can also associate a payment method with the payment. Payment options can be customised in your Settings > Custom fields > Payment methods.

β˜€οΈ The season is just beginning at Ezus, and we'll be bringing you lots of other great features throughout the summer!


May

πŸŽ₯ Watch a video of what's new for May:

  • Resize your Table Columns to suit your needs

From each table, you can enlarge/shrink your columns by directly modifying the size of your box using drag and drop. This works on all your account tables.

  • Finance tab: enhanced views

From your Project Finances tab, you now have access to 3 distinct sections: Sales (Customer), Purchases (Supplier) and Final Margin (financial summary table).

  • Choose directly from your Payment Methods when invoicing

We have harmonized the management of payment methods on Ezus, from the possibility of creating your own default payment methods from Properties > Custom Fields to modifying them when creating an Invoice.
​

  • Export your filtered views

Now your exports only include data from the current view of your table, allowing you to fine-tune your exports.
​

So don't forget to "Modify your Columns" beforehand if the information is not present in your current table.

  • Other, more minor improvements have also been added

Numerous performance improvements have also been made to document generation speed and software ergonomics. Other improvements include the pre-filling of amounts in your Settlements or the ability to view / download Purchase invoices directly from the Supplier File.

Some nice surprises are already on the way for this summer: it's going to be hot 🌞😎


April

πŸŽ₯ Watch in video the updates for April

  • Manage # clients by Project

From now on you can have a different client for each alternative. All you have to do (if at least a 2nd alternative exists) is to uncheck under your client "Same client for all alternatives".
​
​

So, by adding x alternatives you can have x different clients for the same project all with their own program, associated products and specific documents. Quite handy for example for Groups.

  • Enable sound on your Customer Space cover videos

From your Customer Space, you can enable sound on your cover videos. You just need to check the property.
​

Your travellers will also be able to activate or not the sound on their Customer Space via a "Mute" button on the top left:
​

  • Customer Area: Adding Programme stages to your Calendar

From your Map tab you can add a property to display an add Calendar button from the Customer Area to the Traveller's Calendar.
​

  • Easily upload, view and download your purchase invoices from the Supplier File

From your Supplier record, you can now directly add a Purchase Invoice (without necessarily going through the Finance of a Project).
​

  • Automatically filter in your catalogue according to the Project Destination

When searching for a product in your Programme, you can activate a default filter from your Properties allowing you to display in priority only the Products linked (them or their linked suppliers) to the Destination mentioned on the Project.
​

  • Modify amounts manually from already established financial documents

On each finalised Invoice you will find in your financial tables the amounts of the Programme at the amount of the document generation. However, as you know, your documents can be modified manually in certain exceptional cases.
​

If you are an Ezus customer, you can find this ✍️ article on How to define your amounts manually?

  • Manage your financial data more accurately with Project Closing

You can now benefit from a real financial management within your projects allowing you to compare the forecasted purchases and sales via your program and the invoices actually paid in order to have a financial evolution of your real margin. To finalise a project, don't forget to activate the closing which will allow you to have a financial follow-up and more precise and complete statistics!
​


If you are an Ezus customer, you can find this ✍️ article on Why and How to close a Project on Ezus?

  • Benefit from automatic and manual compression of your imported images

From now on, all images added to your Ezus account will be compressed to avoid overly heavy final documents.
​
Moreover, you can pro-actively find potentially heavy images in your Media Library that can be directly compressed with a click. Very practical!
​

  • Other minor improvements have also been added

We have consolidated other parts of the software to improve the overall experience. Examples include the Calendar View of your Current Projects which now shows the photo and name of the linked user; that your Project Managers linked to a project also receive notifications; that many columns have been added to the "Budget > Product Search" view or the "Finance > Supplier > Invoices" view or the Purchasing Table.

And we're already looking forward to the next month of hot new stuff πŸ’— πŸ”₯

  1. Check the reserved products,

  2. Assign suppliers directly to each product (if you had not yet linked your products to the corresponding supplier),

  3. Filter by Supplier.

This view complements the Supplier Management table in the Finance tab, and allows you to better manage the products to be reserved and booked in your Project.

When editing each type of stage (Hosting/Transportation/Activity/Extra), advanced settings are now available. They allow you to highlight certain elements of the stage in certain documents or on the Client Space.

For more info, we have just added a section ✍️ Integrations with articles about it.
