Channel with Custom Availability
This page explains how to use virtual rooms to manage allotments
Note: You can manage the number of rooms you see at a channel via SETTINGS -> CHANNEL MANAGER -> CHANNEL INVENTORY.
Example 1: You have 5 double rooms and guaranteed channel A 2 rooms
Room for booking page: In SETTINGS -> PROPERTIES->ROOMS->SET UP set Quantity=3 In SETTINGS -> PROPERTIES->ROOMS->DEPENDENCIES set "Requires Availability" = Room for channel
Leave all other settings set to the defaults.
Room for channel: In SETTINGS -> PROPERTIES -> ROOMS -> SET UP set Quantity=5 In SETTINGS -> PROPERTIES -> ROOMS -> SET UP set Sell Priority = hide (to hide from booking page) In SETTINGS -> PROPERTIES -> ROOMS -> DEPENDENCIES set "Include Bookings" = Room for booking page
Leave all other settings set to the defaults and map this room to the channel.
Note Test dependencies carefully. If you are using dependencies please test thoroughly to make sure your set up reflects your rules. If you are connecting one physical room more than once to a booking channel you are risking overbookings.
