AskCody new import and export function on host list with differentiators.

It is now possible to easily detect all name duplicates in the host list in the Visitor Management Portal via the new export function, and create differentiators on those hosts who have the same name.

Commonly in larger companies, employees can have the same First and Last name, and this can sometimes create confusion in the reception when you don't know which John Smith to choose in the host list.

Hide notified status label in the Visitor Management Platform

In the AskCody Visitor Management Portal, it's now possible to hide the “notified” label on an expected visitor and keep the visitors sorted by expected arrival time.

When a visitor is expected at a reception the visitor is labeled as “Expected” in the Portal and when the Portal sends out an email or an SMS to notify the visitor about their arrival, the visitor status label changes to “Notified”. This means the “Notified” visitor will move down the list, and if you have sorted the visitor list by “Expected” visitors, you don’t have the overview of who is expected to arrive soon. With the new functionality to hide the "notified" status you can keep the visitors sorted by expected time of arrival regardless of them being "notified".

Tax information fields in AskCody meeting service emails

We have now solved an important issue so that it's possible to hide sensitive tax informations in confirmation and notification emails sent from the AskCody Meeting Service platform. Tax information fields* comes in a variety of types and are individually created and customized by the organization. Some of the informations typed in tax fields can be sensitive and should not be visible in emails.

E.g.,You have a Tax field called "Credit card number" or "External attendees emails", that your employees need to fill out when ordering services for their meeting. These informations could be sensitive and should not be sent out in an email. 

With the option "Tax information in emails", it is possible to disable specific tax fields in emails to prevent sensitive informations from being shown.
