myTurn May 2022 Updates: Reservation Refinements, New features, & API Improvements

Reservation and API Refinements

Our May updates include a number of refinements and new features for reservations, additions to our Self Service Kiosk Mode APIs for working with Locations.

There are also some new Membership Type options for reservations, including:

  • You can limit the number of active upcoming reservations users can have
  • You can also now limit the maximum reservation length and default loan length for all loans/reseravtions based on Membership Type. To do this, continue reading:

Make sure the Loan Length is set properly on all your membership types (or unset to use the Item / Item Type default), then enable:

Settings > Loans & Reseravtions > Reservations > Use membership type default loan length as maximum reservation length

We have also refined the reservation process for additional use-cases:

  • If you only allow users to have one item checked out, there will not be an “add items” option
  • When an admin starts a reservation on behalf of a user, they will not have the option to go straight to the “cart” (since there will be no items in the reservation yet).
  • When a user starts a reservation for a pickup-only, they were previously checnaged to browse “All Locations” and now they will stay browsing the location they were viewing when they started the reservation.

Other updates and changes are listed below:

  • LEND-7600 New Membership option to set the maximum number of upcoming, unfilfilled, reseravtions
