Why not offer a guest a guestbook where he can leave a message, commendation, suggestions or just a nice greeting? For each next guest is reflects customers/ members satisfaction, happiness, security and familiar warmth of a hotel, club or company. Having the opportunity to comment such guest entries shows engagement as well as the kind of cultivate humanity and partnerships that is established with one another.

Our typo3 plugin is based on our MotoGo Lib and in consequence inherits its full potential. In our base version following features are implemented and directly usable:

  • A guest entry form having standard mandatory or optional fields (name, email, message etc.) with validation as well as a captcha security mechanism.
  • After send button is pressed, sender can get an email information. In any case the guest entry record is stored in DB.
  • Maybe a control step ensures that not all unwanted guest entries are shown. However, in the end a (filtered/ sorted) list of guest entries is showable.
  • In a “hidden frontend area” the list of all guest entries is accessible. This list provides all functionalities needed for guest entry management.
  • In particular search and sort opportunities provide a good overview over all guest entries.
  • Each guest entry can be answered per internal E-mail functionality that is part of our Frontend User Manager.
  • (Filtered) guest entries can be exported in an EXCEL list.
  • Guest entries are also available and editable in typo3 backend.

In case listed features aren't enough, it’s simple to add own guest entry fields, verifications or different checks for unwanted robot requests. Also, it’s simple to extend the base functionality with own actions alias functionalities. The simplicity of the MotoGo Lib ensures that it’s a matter of few configuration changes or additional lines of code.

Moreover, for all frontend output pure CSS, jquery mobile as well as bootstrap layout can be used. Whereby it poses no problem to use two layouts in one solution if necessary. Thus the list view of the guest entries can be part of a bootstrap page, even though the guest entry management is performed in a separate jquery mobile environment.
