This view gives you a complete overview on your bookings, rates and occupation and inventory. By clicking on "Filter" then ticking the boxes you can select what you want to display.

  • bookings are displayed in red (or your selected colour) - hover the mouse over individual bookings to show more information or click on them to open them in a pop up.
  • rates in green for each room - hover the mouse over individual rates to show more information or click on them to open them in a popup.

Inventory: The number of rooms remaining to sell is also shown and they can be edited to quickly change your availability. (It is only possible to lower the number based on the value in SETTINGS - > PROPERTIES -> ROOMS-> SETUP "Quantity of this type" and any existing bookings) Click to open a popup and save the changes in your inventory.

Add Booking: To add a booking click on the person+ icon.

Daily Prices: You can enter the prices here. Click in on the day the rate starts to open a popup and set the price and date range and click SAVE. You may modify individual dates as required.

Show Groups of Properties

Properties can be opened as groups in the calendar. Use the SETTINGS-> BOOKING PAGE-> MULTIPLE PROPERTIES-> PROPERTY SETTINGS "Group Keywords "setting to assign keywords to each property. These keywords will appear in the property selector and show all properties having that keyword.

Enhance Performance

If you have many properties and/or slow internet you can do the following:

  • Show less data e.g. a week only
  • Turn off all rows which you are not using via the "Show" selector"
  • Avoid opening all properties. Instead open individual properties or create property groups

Further Customisation using CSS

If you are comfortable working with CSS you can use custom CSS to customise the control panel further. Use Firebug or a similar tool to detect the classes you want to change.

Example: Give the inventory cell a different color if the inventory is 0.

.caltable .inv0{
background-color: #d43f3a;
.inv0 .dashgrid_inventory {
color: #fff;
.inv0 .lightgrey {
color: #fff;

Example: display roomname and icons in one line.

.dashgrid_rowroomname {
display: inline;
padding-left: 2px;
