Managers can now revoke Special Permits in addition to Assigned Permits (e.g. Smart Decals). Self-registered guest/paid permits still cannot be revoked, though.
Revoke Special Permits
Login Account Dashboard
When you log in to Parking Boss, you now always get your account dashboard with list of locations and user options (change password, etc). Previously, you might be taken directly into the Manager or Field Agent apps if you were a user of only one location.
We think you'll find it easier to see your account and app options.
As always, please let us know if you have questions or need help at email@example.com
Special Permits for Spaces
If you have defined spaces in your account (e.g. 101, OPEN, GUEST, GARAGE, etc), you've probably seen the space field when assigning Smart Decals.
Starting today, you can also set a space when creating Special Permits. This means you can put a vehicle on the safelist for parking in other spots than just guest parking. If you don't set a space, it will default to the one in your normal guest policy.
If you have any questions, please let us know and we'll be happy to help!
Browser Support Updates
As part of our never-ending work to make Parking Boss faster, easier, and better, from time to time we update our supported browsers.
On January 1, 2020, Parking Boss will no longer work on Internet Explorer (IE). IE 11, the newest Internet Explorer, was released in 2013 and is woefully out of date when it comes to making modern apps possible.
For our latest system requirements, including a list of supported browsers, please see: https://help.parkingboss.com/en/articles/3069072-system-requirements
"Loading..." When Login Expires
We identified a case where if a login token expires, it could get stuck in "Loading…" where the list of locations normally is.
This has been fixed and will now automatically send you to the login page to re-enter your username and password.
Tweaks to Password Reset
We've made a few tweaks to the password reset text, emails, and links that we think will make the process more simple, clear, and easy.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
Reclaim Warning Sticker
If you enter a warning sticker number and for whatever reason need to remove the violation, the warning sticker may be entered on a new violation.
This is useful if the warning sticker is accidentally not used or if you need to remove and update the violation, since you can re-use the sticker number already on the car.
Parking Attendant Preauthorize Improvements
We've just updated a few things when preauthorizing guests in Parking Attendant:
- Fixed iOS link issues in Messages
- Added "Share" instead of "Copy" where the system supports it
We hope these help make the process of preauthorizing visitors and sharing the link with them a bit easier!
Fully Customize Violation Reasons
Our team can now fully customize your violation reasons, from adding new ones specific to your needs to removing one or all of the default reasons.
To get started or if you have questions, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Multiple Policies in Parking Attendant
We recently soft-launched a whole suite of new features to turbocharge self-service registration in Parking Attendant.
You can now have multiple registration policies, each with their own set of meters. For instance, you can set limited free guest parking with an option to register more time for a fee, provide day-only vendor registration, etc.
As part of this update, you'll see the "Safelist" menu item in Manager and Field Agent, as this section aggregates permits from these different polices together.
