2024 Release Notes and Update History

February 2023


  • New look & feel for CloudBridal. The main changes are around the header, fonts, and form fields, but you will notice various other tweaks throughout the app. Core functionality and navigation largely remain the same.
  • Improvements to Inventory Showcase:
    • You can now hide/show the vendor filter, which is useful if you do not want to show available vendors to customers.
    • Added an optional silhouette filter to allow customers to filter by silhouette.
    • Added an optional item type filter to allow customers to filter by item type.
    • No longer requiring header images to be uploaded for customer categories. Instead, the category selection is skipped altogether with the new ability to define a default category.
    • You can now see the customer's selected favorite items directly in the appointment form. Previously, their selections were only visible in their profile.
  • You can now configure tax inclusive Alterations, Additional Work, and Additional Fees. This can be managed in the Order Settings. Previously, these amounts were always entered pre-tax.
  • The "Total Retail Value Sold" column for the vendor performance report is now tax inclusive.
  • When creating custom fields for orders, you can now specify multiple options for the "Limit to Inventory Item Types" field. Previously, you were only able to select a single option.
  • Appointment type buffer periods are now respected between different appointment types in the same resource/fitting room. Previously, they were only used to calculate time slots for a single appointment type. For example, if you have a bridal appointment followed by a bridesmaid appointment, the bridal appointment buffer period will be respected when calculating whether the bridesmaid appointment slot is available.
  • Fixed issue where an error would occur if you tried to select specific availability slots in the appointment schedule.


  • Added new module: Inventory Showcase, available for the Ultimate plan. This digital showcase allows you to display your inventory to potential customers before their visit to your store. For more details, see the Inventory Showcase documentation.
  • Added new paid appointments mode: Charge Manually. This gives you full control over when to charge for paid appointments as opposed to the existing mode which always charged at time of booking. This can be managed by editing your appointment types in the Appointment Settings.
  • For all paid appointment modes (Charged at Booking, Charge Manually, and Reserve), you can now set a disclaimer message that will be displayed to the customer before they book a paid appointment. This can be useful to explain details such as your cancellation policy. This can be managed by editing your appointment types in the Appointment Settings.
  • Added ability to create orders for items that don't match the customer's type. For example, you can now create bridesmaids order under a bride's profile.
  • Added ability to add multiple dresses to the same order instead of requiring separate orders for each dress.
  • Improved the reports module to make it easier to view reports that have many columns.
  • Updated time picker input field to support clicking to change the time instead of having to type the time.
  • The Orders Created report now has a Totals row to make it easier to view the summed amounts without exporting to Excel.
  • Various misc tweaks to the user interface and bug fixes to improve usability.
  • Fixed issue where real-time notifications for things like incoming SMS messages and E-Signatures were not working.
  • Fixed issue where switching between Day/Week view in appointments calendar makes the 'New Appointment' popup menu not function.
  • Fixed issue where automated emails based on 'First Appointment Date: No Item Purchased' were being sent to customers marked as a no-show.
  • Fixed issue where non-admin staff accounts could not delete orders even if they were given permission to do so.
