1. Important changes when creating new users
Previously you would have to create and link each HTML5 user, but now you don’t have to worry about it anymore as it is done automatically. Be aware that that now you will have to assign their user rights, as they start off with no rights for security.
Log in with a user with administrator rights and open the user administration (System Data > System > User management (Flash)). Then assign the desired rights to the user.

The tax amounts that appear on the on top of the sales prices can be displayed in invoice overview for the whole stay. So, the tax amount will always be displayed as a separate item on the invoice.
To help you be more compliant with GDPR we have two new updates.
We have a new icon used to anonymize the guests files as background task. While processing a cogwheel will appear and once it has completed you it will change into check marks.
We also will remove any personal data from your training basis from when the GDPR law took effect.This means all previous and future profiles will be anoymized. You can find more information about this by scrolling below.
4. System Data
It is now compulsory to enter the item number in the system data due to organization issues. If you do not attribute an item number to it the internal system data ID will be used.
