FAQ: How to configure Room Availability
1. What factors influence room availability for my property?
Room availability for your property is influenced by several factors, including the type of property you are managing and the rates you define.
2. How does the property type affect availability?
The property type plays a role in determining availability:
- For hotel-style accommodations: Availability is determined by individual rooms and their occupancy capacity for adults and children.
- For property-style accommodations: Availability is based on the maximum capacity of the entire property space.
3. How do rates and occupancy impact availability?
Rates are essential in determining availability:
- Property Style: For property-style spaces, availability is determined by the maximum capacity you set for the space. The property can accommodate up to the specified maximum capacity.
- Hotel Style: In hotel-style accommodations, you must create rates for various occupancy scenarios. If your property has rooms with different capacities (e.g., 1 adult, 2 adults, 1 adult + 1 child), you need to establish corresponding rates for accurate availability calculations.
4. How do I work with default data and configurations?
The system comes with pre-configured default data to simplify the setup process:
- Apply these pre-created configurations to the respective property spaces.
- Assign the appropriate rate values.
- The system will automatically calculate availability based on the defined occupancy configurations.
By following these steps, you can effectively configure room availability based on various factors for your property.
