Sellable services updates!
We've added a few new features to the sellable services offering within the booth sales modules:
1. You can now group services by any category you decide. For example, 'Sponsorships' or 'Booth Services'
2. Inventory control allows you to limit how many of an item can be purchased.
3. You can specify dates for when a service becomes available or unavailable for purchase.
4. Order confirmations and print-outs only display the purchased services.

Order export update
The orders export has been updated to allow individual totals and the final order total and balance to be excluded from the export file.
Booth Personnel Sales Updates
When exhibitors log in to update their profile, if you have registration turned on and the ability to purchase booth personnel, this option is now present before the exhibitor has reached their limit. Instructions and information about their current standings have also been added to make this feature easier to use.
Updated Exhibitor Dashboard Configuration Options
We've updated the exhibitor login display. If an Exhibitor has open order balances that you'd like to hide from their view (because maybe you handle open balances in a separate system), you can now hide them from displaying in the Exhibitor dashboard.
You also have the option to hide open orders in the Exhibitor view entirely.
Order Export updates
The order export now includes a breakdown of the individual order pieces: Fees, Discounts, Services, and Booths Totals appear in the downloaded report.
Rupees have been added
Rupees have been added as a currency display option during exhibitor checkout.
You can add up to 10 exhibitors into a booth
Due to popular demand, we've expanded the number of exhibitors you can have in one booth from 6 to 10.
Admin Control Panel - Multiple updates!
We've put a lot of work into the admin recently and have launched several productivity-focused updates.
These features apply to sponsors, sponsor levels, booth types, links and documents, sellable services, discount codes, exhibitor categories, speakers, schedule tracks, and schedule sessions. They do not include exhibitors (yet)
- You can now select multiple records at once by using the checkboxes on the left and clicking the edit button at the bottom of the list.
- Within any of the above records, while editing an individual record you now have the option to duplicate that record and begin working on it immediately.
- For any record set above 100 entries there is a new, advanced search that allows you to search across multiple fields.
Exhibitor Checkout Fields update
We've added the ability to turn off fields during the exhibitor checkout. For instance, if you don't want users entering a website, twitter, or Facebook link, you can turn them off.
Now you can add custom fields to your exhibitors table
Need to request or store more information about your exhibitors? Now you can add an unlimited number of additional, custom fields to the exhibitors table for admin-only or exhibitor entry.

Version 4.1.1 Released! On-demand high-res exports, automatic mobile publishing
We've starting launching new features on the 4th edition of our map editor.
The first feature are on-demand high-res exports. Need a high-res version of your map, now you can choose to export a 1x, 2x, or even up to 10x the size of your map image directly through our newest editor.
The second feature is an update to simplify the process of publishing the mobile map. Everytime you hit "save updates" in the editor it will save the booth updates and publish the mobile map version.
Mobile links for 3rd parties
We've updated our mobile platform to allow individual sections to be included directly into 3rd party apps without also including the native menus and navigation. Meaning you can now include your exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, schedule, or floorplan content from our app into a 3rd party app without duplicating navigation or causing conflicts with the 3rd party app.
You can find the direct links for embedding into the Mobile Settings editor under the Show Setup and Settings tab in the admin.

We were informed of a bug whereby the credit card expiration date was not editable on invoices being viewed in mobile. This has been fixed.

Sponsor Levels added
We've added a way to distinguish sponsors between varying levels on the Mobile App display.

The mobile app has been updated to mirror all the features found on the desktop version for Exhibitor Plus.
Discount code and additional services updated
We learned of a bug in the order manager that allowed discount codes to be added to an order multiple times. This has been fixed. Additionally, if a sellable service price was entered with the additional currency symbol it caused errors in the addition. This has been resolved as well.
Show Managers can manually enter payments for invoices
Directly within the order manager control panel you can go directly to the payment page for any open invoice to manually pay on behalf of the exhibitor.
Turn on / off exhibitor profile tabs
Within the exhibitor profile display, show managers can now hide individual tabs from displaying.
Booth personnel can represent multiple companies
Added to the booth personnel record is the "Company" field that allows multiple companies to be represented within one Exhibitor profile. Booth personnel export has been updated to reflect this change.
Added in general booth quantity discounts
These are discounts that are separate from the booth tier pricing and separate from the discount codes. These will apply during booth checkout automatically if the quantity minimum is met.

Expanded the available social media options on exhibitor profiles to include Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, Google+, and YouTube. API services have been updated as well.

Display of custom registration questions within exhibitor profile
When purchasing a booth online, show managers have the option to ask exhibitors custom-defined questions. The answers to these questions previously only displayed within the order profile in the order manager but have been added to each individual exhibitor's profile under a new "Administrative" tab.
Access granted to individual features
Previously in the access manager exhibitors only had the option of having a 'basic' or 'advanced' profile. Now the show manager can assign access to any or all the individual features available in Exhibitor Plus!
Exhibitor profile display settings expanded
Show manager can now hide individual fields from displaying in the exhibitor form and the exhibitor profile view on the desktop and mobile app views.
Access control manager - direct links
