Updates until July
The summer vacation has started and some of the participants are already back from the camp - sure
with a lots of experiences after this long corona break. To find out more about the real life usage of the
of Bookacamp, we recently visited a camp on site and reviewed the checkin with a QR code
scanner. Some of the adaptations below are a direct response to what we learned there.
Parents often get in touch to find out about the age structure of the participants in the camp. In addition
to the overviews of the number of boys / girls who have already registered, Bookacamp shows
the age structure in the backoffice.
Read access for supervisors is used a lot during the season and answers questions about participants
directly in the camp, e.g. if the doctor needs emergency contact details. Read access has recently received
a few optimizations that make it easier to navigate on small cell phone displays. In addition, a profile
page of the participant can be called up directly in read access.
If parents provide individual travel information, for example because they appear earlier at the check-in,
this can now be stored directly in booking and the information appears in the exports and read access. Camp
leaders immediately have all the information about arrival and departure ready.
There are often incidents during the camp that the office should know about in case parents call. If
noteworthy events are stored as a supervision note, there is now a diary with which you can get an overview
in the morning at the beginning of the working day. With this information you will no longer be surprised by
a phone call.
External access data - e.g. language test
If you want to store access data for each booking for an external tool, in order to then send them
collectively to all bookings of an event, you can now find this in the booking processing view. One area of
usage are language tests before the camp starts. This saves the tedious and error-prone creation of
Payment provider Saferpay
In addition to Girosolution, Klarna Sofort, Adyen and direct debit by Bookacamp, there is an immediately
available integration to the payment service provider Saferpay. Saferpay has all common payment methods in
Synchronization of the booking status between travel agent and tour operator
If the travel agent and tour operator are both part of the Bookacamp network, the status of a forwarded
booking can now be synchronized. This eliminates the annoying request for the booking confirmation for the
Classification of supervisors
In order to structure the classification of the suitability of a supervisor, you can now find some input
fields in the profile to note information about the subjective impression and suitability as a supervising person.
