New Feature - Session / Function Status
Introducing our new Session/Function Statuses which helps you manage your event planning workflow more effectively. The new Session/Function Statuses are completely customizable so that you can get the most out of this new feature.
These Statuses can soon be used by the forecasting reports to determine whether a session has enough detail to properly calculate revenue or if the Average Check for that Event Type should be used instead.

New Feature - Add Menu Headings and Selection Criteria with our new Menu Enhancement.
When creating a Menu in iVvy you will now have the ability to create a Menu Group. A Menu Group serves as a heading to a group of items, for example, Entrée, Main Course, Dessert etc. When creating Menu Groups you can also add selection criteria of the minimum or maximum items to select. This Menu Group will also display as a heading for items on your BEO which has been a highly requested feature.

Enhancement - See More Information About Important Dates On The Function Diary
Important Dates is a fantastic feature of the system which enables your team to see important dates in their diary. We have enhanced Important Dates by adding the option of a Tool Tip. This allows managers to provide more information regarding the Important Date which can be seen when hovering over the date on the diary, giving you and your team greater clarity.
