Michael @wisepilgrim had mentioned a new feature that he was developing for Wise Pilgrim, and it looks like it is now in operation. You can check the app and see in real time how many beds are left in an albergue. I imagine that there are a limited number of albergues participating in this feature right now, but it should be a great help.

I saw this posted on FB from a hospitalera at Betania Albergue in Pamplona about the new feature:

3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
As a volunteer during a busy time, I would find it difficult to keep up with this especially at an albergue site with no wifi. Some of you serving will need to let us know how effective it is. Thanks in advance from a hopeful hospitalera!

The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Thanks Trecile. That's a great feature. Looking forward to using it.

What's next? A voluntary digital credential and reservations might save volunteers time, and reduce those multiple reservations - are they still a thing?

A digital Compostela would be too much to hope for, but think of the volunteer time, carbon and trees saved.

A few years ago digital credential was trialed - I don't know what became of it. And the new system of registering for a Compostela online instead of filling out a paper form does save some trees. 😊
