Here are some Questions with Answers for New Property Managers.
Click on Properties > New Property to add a new property.
Click on Properties > Preview to see how your property looks to guests.
How you add rooms depends on your Tariff (Rate) Editing mode. In the Normal tariff editing mode, you don't need to add rooms, as they're automatically added when you configure your prices. If you are using Micromanage or Advanced tariff editing mode, then in Settings > Rooms you can add, edit and delete rooms. You will also be able to create room features, and assign these features to those rooms. Additionally, you will be able to upload images for individual rooms using the Media Centre. When you create rooms, you should try to ensure that they reflect your real-world rooms in your property as that will make them easier to manage.
This depends on your tariff (rate) editing mode. If you are using the Normal Tariff editing mode ( Property Configuration > Tariff Editing Modes tab) then you can configure the number of rooms you have, the price, the number of people each room can accommodate and the total number of people you want in each booking. This mode allows you to set room prices for the next 10 years. <br/>If you are using the Advanced or Micromanage tariff editing modes, then you are able to set room prices for every day for years to come. You can also have multiple tariffs for the same room type, for example you can have one tariff for Bed&Breakfast and another for Bed, Breakfast & Evening meal. Unless you have a specific need, we recommend that you use Micromanage all the time, Advanced will work in the same way but you need to be careful to ensure that your different tariff's start and end dates are consecutive.
Extras can be added to bookings and are configured in Settings > Extras. These can be either optional or 'forced', in other words the guest cannot de-select them in the booking. You can offer different methods of charging for optional extras, and whether or not they're shown in your Property Details page. Because extras can be made to only show if a booking is within certain dates ( for example, for seasonal fruits ), you should make sure that you have set the Valid from and To dates. Once you have created optional extas, you can upload images for them through the Media Manager.
To take payments online, you need to have an account with an online payment provider, called a Gateway. To see the available gateways, go to Property Configuration > Gateways tab. Click on a gateway's name to be taken to it's configuration page.
Discounts can be given, there are a number of different ways this can be done. If you are making a booking on behalf of a customer, then you can set your own Deposit and Booking totals in the booking form, using the "Override Accommodation Total" and "Override Deposit" fields ( guests can't use this feature ). Another way to give a guest a discount is to create discount coupons, which can be configured so that they can only be used between certain dates ( Valid from/to ) or applied only when the booking falls between certain dates ( Booking valid from/to ). This discount coupons can be assigned to just one guest, or if you want you can print out the coupons. The printout includes a QR code which guests can scan into their phones that takes them to your booking form with the discount code already applies.
Before you can take bookings online, you must first configure some prices (tariffs, (rates)) for each room type you have in your real-world property. Once you have created some tariffs, you will be able to take bookings.
Black bookings are bookings that have been created to take a room or rooms out of service. They're not associated with any guests and are useful, for example, if a room needs to be refurbished.
To upload images, you need to visit the Settings > Media Centre page. On this page you will see several panes. At the top you might see some notes, and underneath them you'll see a dropdown. This dropdown allows you to select which resource you're uploading images for. On the right is a column with Add Images, Clear List and Upload all. Click Add Images and select some images from your desktop or mobile device. When you've done that, the column will change to a list of thumbnails. From here you can upload one or more images for your resources.
The Main image is the one that appears in search results and in your property header ( the area at the top of pages that show something about your property ). You should choose an image that displays your property in the best possible light. To upload a main image, make sure Property Main Image is selected in the dropdown list at the top left, then upload one or more images. If you upload more than one image, then all images will be used in the search results page displaying as a small slideshow.
Room features can be created by users of Micromanage or Advanced tariff editing modes. These can be linked to one or more rooms, and are displayed in the booking form. Once you have created a room feature, you can upload an image for that feature by first selecting Room Features Icons in the dropdown in the Media Centre, then selecting the room feature's name from the dropdown that will appear underneath.
Rooms can be created by users of Micromanage or Advanced tariff editing modes. Once one or more rooms have been created, you can upload multiple images for each room through the Media Centre (select the room name/number after selecting Room Images in the dropdown). These images can be seen in a slideshow by viewing the Preview page and selecting the Our Rooms tab then clicking on the Availability link.
Slideshow images are seen in the Property Details ( Preview ) page, next to the Book Now button.
Similar to the rooms and room features, you need to create an Extra first. Once that's done, you can select Extras in the top dropdown. When you've done that, you need to select the name of the Extra from the dropdown list below. When the name is selected you can upload one or more images for that Extra.
Allows the property manager to use the Advanced and Micromanage tariff (Rate) editing modes. These tariff editing modes offer greater flexibility than the default Normal editing mode, enabling the property manager to set prices to be dependent on the number of people in a booking, the number of days in a booking or the number of rooms that have already been selected. You can create multiple tariffs for a given room type, creating intricate pricing schemes, giving you the best opportunity to mirror a property's existing charging method.
Adds a menu option to the misc menu option to show managers embed code for embedding their availability calendar into an off-site page.
This allows you to create, manage and sell tours/resources bookings. Basically, guests will book places in a tour. So if we have a tour called 'London Tour by Bus', a guest would be able to book seats in this bus. A tour can be many things, like a cinema, a restaurant, a trip or anything that offers the possibility for a guest to book a place.
A certificate of occupancy is a document issued by a local government agency or building department certifying a building's compliance with applicable building codes and other laws, and indicating it to be in a condition suitable for occupancy.
Allows a property manager to define different minimum occupancy levels for different room types.
On this page you`ll find an iframe code that you can use to display this property`s booking form on some other website.
A quick and dirty cleaning schedule that can be selected from the Property Manager's main menu -> Misc option
This legacy view allows you to see all properties calendars with bookings on one page. It`s not recommended to use this view if you have a lot of properties. Currently displayed month (only for MRPs) can be changed from the top dropdown.
Discount coupons can be generated for guests as an incentive for them to make bookings and it`s a useful tool to generate business. In the Coupon list you can choose to edit a coupon, and under the More option you can choose to either print the coupon or delete it. When you choose the print option you're taken to a new page that allows you to print the page from your browser. On this page you will also see a QR code. This code, when scanned, will take the guest to the booking form, with the discount code already applied. When you create a new coupon, the booking system will automatically create a unique code for you, however you can change this code to something else if you like.
Allows the creation of various models of optional extras which are added to the booking form (e.g., Towels, Cleaning Fee, etc.). These are up-sold items that are offered in the booking form after the rooms have been selected.
Black bookings is a term used to define bookings which are not made by a guest. Instead they are used by the system to take a room or rooms out of service, typically for renovation or because the property is on holiday.
This is an alternate way of adding Black bookings. Select the room or rooms from the selection panel, then in the calendar below select the first and last dates of the black booking. Rooms are blocked instantly after selecting the last date.
You can upload images for either the main property image (this is the one shown in the property list and in the header), individual rooms and slideshow images. You can also see existing images uploaded for each resource under that drop-down and view or delete those images if you need to. At the top left choose the resource you want to upload an image for. If you choose Room Images from the drop-down you'll get an additional drop-down where you can specify the room you want to upload the image for. Remember, when uploading images the initial size of the image (e.g. 200kb) isn't as important as the initial resolution (e.g. 400px x 400px), so for example of you're uploading an image that's initially 400 x 400 in size, and resizing it to 800 x 800 then it will never look good because php is forced to guess how to fill the pixels between those provided in the original. The trick is to upload an image of 1200 x 1200 and let the system make the resulting images smaller. For best results and proper image display across all your pages, it`s important to upload same aspect ratio images. We`ve uploaded only images of 1920 x 1080px.
You can use this feature to create guest types drop-downs that will be displayed on the booking form. Visitors can then select the number of guests in the booking and will use this to present the guests rooms that match the total in party.
Allows importing and exporting of ics files to and from properties. You can also export individual bookings from the list booking and edit booking pages. The iCal feeds page shows urls for sharing with other devices. You can import ics files too, on the iCal Import page. When importing an iCal file, the Event end date should be the departure date of the guest. The Summary should be the Guest's name. Event description can contain all other details. When the event is added, it's created as a black booking so there are no invoice or guest details for these "bookings".
