What’s New with Coherent? May 2017

What's New

Slack integration, recurring bookings and more!

We’ve spent the past couple of months working on some huge updates, and we’re pleased to announce that they’re now live!

Coherent now connects to your Slack account

If you’re already using Slack in your coworking space, you’ll love this feature. Now every time a new member signs up to your workspace on Coherent, they’ll automatically be added to a Slack channel.

Now you no longer need to worry about manually inviting new members, and newcomers can become part of your coworking community even more efficiently.

Your members can now make recurring bookings

If you’ve got members that need to book a meeting room every Monday morning for the next couple of months, they can now easily do it with just a few clicks. Even if they change tariff before the end of the recurrence, Coherent will still save their bookings, and they’ll be charged accordingly.

You can create recurring charges

You can add a manual charge to their invoice if you want to charge a member for something without creating a tariff. If you wish for this charge to be automatically applied each month, now you can. So now you can delete those reminders from your calendar to add the charges each month.

The bookings page has had a design refresh

We’ve made it even easier to make bookings. We now display the resource descriptions so your members know they’re booking the right thing, we display discount bundles more clearly so they can take advantage of any offers you have, and we more clearly show their monthly tariff allowance.

Pay As You Go members can immediately switch to monthly members

Previously if a PAYG member wanted to move to a monthly tariff, they would have to wait until the 1st of the following month. That seemed a bit silly, really, so we’ve changed it, so they switch immediately. Their first-month cost and tariff allowance will automatically be pro-rated if they switch mid-month.

On top of all this, we fixed some bugs around cancelling PAYG invoices, discount bundles not displaying correctly, and emails sent out to workspace hosts. We improved New Signup and Unsubscription emails and tweaked some stuff in the Organisation profiles.
