DVC Tools Change Log

  • Miscellaneous fixes.

Version 1.51 - 5/18/22

  • Added All Contracts Points Overview page so you can see a points overview for all contracts on the same page.
  • Added Use Transaction Date to Contract Overview page which works more like disney. If you record a point banking transaction then previous vacation transactions (based on date of vacation and banking) will not use those points, which shows up in the overview page.

  • Added Points Left Totals for All Contracts on the Contracts page.
  • Added Points Usage information for the specific contract on the edit contract page.
  • Added date to when points were used for a vacation payment (this allows better backend point tracking calcuations).
  • Miscellaneous back & front end fixes/additions as well as back end additions for possible upcoming alerts and real time search features.

Version 1.49 - 8/2/21

  • Updated the bank points email to correctly state the remaining points left in the use year.
  • Added public facing vacation calculator with points, costs, occupancy and estimated availability.

Version 1.46 - 2/14/21

  • Added an availability chance alert when editing/viewing a vacation and under most calculators. This data comes from the charts on our site of green/open, orange/mostly, yellow/spotty, and red/none, which is based on past room availability.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Vesion 1.45 - 1/4/21

  • Added a Vacations Overview page that shows you all your vacations in a yearly (month by month) overview so you can visually see your vacations throughout each year.
  • Added the ability to suppress vacation and rental alerts on the Dashboard screen from being displayed by clicking the X on the alert. Once the X is clicked it will no longer display on the Dashboard page. This is useful if you don't want to see a specific alert, maybe because you already completed a 11 month booking and don't need to see the 7 month booking alert.

  • Updated the date pickers to allow selection of dates in the past.
  • Added a new calculator that allows you to see a vacation cost in points across different years. This allows you to see how much points your vacation went up or down between the years.

Version 1.38 - 8/4/20

  • Added the ability for you to foward your DVC Reservation E-mails to [email protected] from the e-mail address assoicated with your dvchelp.com account, and the system will parse the e-mail for the check-in date, check-out date, resort and room and will automatically create the vacation in your account, if a vacation that matches exactly does not exist. All other data in the e-mail such as Resort Confirmation numbers, guests, etc. are disregarded and not stored or created with the vacation data.
