Aug 3, 2017

Grass Roots had landed a new client and was working quickly towards launching registration and housing for its upcoming conference. The event was projecting 6,000 room nights at four hotels, in ten sub-blocks.

Meetingmax Feature Highlight - Bulk Changes

Inspired by customer feedback at Unconvention 2017, we are super excited to announce improvements to the Changes tab in your Meetingmax system. The new Bulk Changes feature allows you to manage many different change requests at the same time without having to process each of them individually. What a time saver! Don't worry, you can still do it the old way if that suits you by simply clicking on each row in the table. This feature is across all panels.
