To close out 2018 we'd like to thank all our users and wish everyone a great start to 2019! 😉
We're proud of what we achieved in 2018. We invested significant resources to ensure that the platform remains reliable, available, fast and secure to a high standard. Our uptime for 2018 was practically 100%.
Of course, we also released numerous updates and improvements to the platform this year. There are too many to mention in detail, but here's a recap of the highlights:
Security and privacy: 2018 saw significant improvements to security and privacy at Skedda. The GDPR came into enforcement on May 25 and we're proud of meeting all our obligations in this respect. Various aspects of Skedda's security infrastructure were also tightened up this year, including automatic threat-detection, acceptance to the HSTS preload list, the deployment of DNSSEC, the deployment of a Content Security Policy, the disablement of old TLS protocols, the addition of various state-of-the-art HTTP security headers, and all-important PCI-compliance updates. All the details can be reviewed in our support article on data security.
Major UI rework: In October we released a major rework of the user interface for desktop and mobile. The new interface is modern, clean and consistent across all devices, and keeps our users on the forefront of interface design and user-experience.
User tags: In June we released a complete rework of the way that user permissions are handled. This feature further simplified Skedda's concepts and simultaneously gives more power to manage how users interact with your venue. More details can be found in the corresponding updates post.
Features galore: Over the year we released numerous other highly-requested features, like the new month view, the ability to "End a booking early", the ability for users to "Cancel this and any following occurrences", the ability for admins to "Edit this and following occurrences", a Progressive App for mobile devices, transparent Billing history, Custom terms and conditions for venues, and the option to login with a Microsoft account.
We're really looking forward to 2019! Our growing team will be working hard to bring to you more of the features you've been asking for whilst maintaining our industry-leading level of service and support.
For now though, a hearty Happy New Year from the Skedda Team! 😀
