This page is about the menu REPORTS

If you need a report that is not here please let us know, we will attempt to add any reasonable report type.

If you have more than one property you can select whether you want to run a report for one property or for all.

After you have selected the time period click on one of the report buttons to generate the report.

If you want to limit the report to certain rooms you can add a rooms parameter to the end of the report URL in the browser.

The rooms parameter can contain one room id or a comma separated list of room id's

For example adding &rooms=1000,1001 to the reports URL will cause the report to show only room id's 1000 and 1001.

Standard Reports

The system offers a range of standard reports.

Definitions:

  • average over stay: Values are assigned to each months with booked dates by the number of nights in each month.
  • booked at check-in date: Value of all bookings for which the check-in date falls into the selected period.
  • booked at check-out date: Value of all bookings for which the check-out date falls into the selected period.
  • Invoice charges: Values from the "Total Charge" field in the "Charge and Payments" tab of the booking.
  • Revenue: Values from the "Price" field in the "Charge and Payments" tab of the booking.
  • Monthly Room Charges: This will report the Room only Charges for bookings in a selected period.
  • Monthly Extra Charges: This will report ALL Extra Charges for bookings in a selected period.

Export standard report to Excel

1. Generate the report. The report will open in a new browser tab.

2. Select "Save As" in your browser. The report will be saved to your computer as something like 'report.html'.

3. Go to the saved file and open it with Excel.

Custom Reports

You can create and store custom reports at the menu SETTINGS->REPORTS->CUSTOM REPORTS.

General set up

1. Create a custom report

  • Enter a "Report Title" which is the name under which the report will be stored.
  • Adjust the other criteria
  • Drag the items you want to the left side and the one you do not want to the right then SAVE. It will now be always available.

2. Generate a preset custom report

  • Use the selector to choose a report
  • If required adjust the criteria e.g. dates
  • If you want to use a custom report on the dashboard set it "Layout" = tabular.

If you use info codes in booking you can use these to show or hide selected bookings.

For example, if you use the code "CHECKEDIN" when guests check in and "CHECKEDOUT" when guests check out, you could create a custom reports to show custom reports by showing booking which include the info code "CHECKEDIN" and excluding those that have the info code "CHECKEDOUT".


The "Room Template" columns show the content added in SETTINGS-PROPERTIES-ROOMS-SETUP under "Room Template". These fields can contain template variables and also math variables which allows you to use these columns for custom calculations.

Note: There can be problems exporting data to Excel or CSV in some browsers including Internet Explorer/Edge, it works well with Chrome and Firefox.  Problems also occur with Chrome and MAC.

Graphs and Charts

Under "Layout" you can choose to show a graph or chart. If you want to use this option what is set to "Sort by" defines what is shown horizontally.

  • Each column which can have a "Total" can show as graph.
  • The monthly bar graph requires dated to be selected in "Sort by".
  • For a pie chart you only need the column "Quantity" or a charges/payments/price column. A pie chart will be drawn by what is set to "Sort by" by number of bookings or value.

Template variables in Custom Reports

The columns "Property Template" and "Room Template" will show the content you have entered in SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->DESCRIPTION / SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->ROOMS->SETUP. These fields support template variables. If you enter template variables there the report will show the corresponding value from the booking. You can also use math variables to calculate values from the booking.

Example: Create a report in showing a column which is calculated from a value in the booking

1. In this example we will calculate 15% from the lodging price. Do do this go to SETTINGS ->PROPERTIES->ROOMS -> SETUP and add [INVOICEUPSELLNUM0][*]0.15 as "Room Template 1"

2. Create a custom report:

Drag the columns with the information you want to see from "Available Columns" to "Show Columns" make sure you choose the "Room Template 1" column.

Example 5: List room charges and extras individually tallied or in groups

1.) Create meaningful identifiers for your charges groups. For example:

Room charges, upsell item cleaning = Room

upsell item breakfast = Breakfast

upsell items cats, dogs = Pets.

2.) Insert these identifiers into the status fields for invoice items or upsell items

The status fields are not directly accessible. You have to append the content to the description field with a pipe (|).

Invoice items:

Settings > Guest Management > Invoicing > Invoice Item Room Description: Your description|Your identifier

Upsell items:

Settings > Properties > Upsell Items > Description: Your description|Your identifier

By adding the same identifier to multiple upsell items or invoice items you pool them into a group

3.) Create a custom report. Use the fields that you need and make sure to use the field 'Invoice Status Values'

  • Layout = 'Tabular'
  • Include Totals = 'Report'

This creates a column for each of your charges groups with the identifier as the column header and the total amounts at the bottom.

Note: Bookings that were created before you created the identifiers won't be included in this report unless you manually add the identifier in the booking popup under 'Charges and Payments'


Example: Report for tax advisor

1.) If you require sums for different payment methods, first set up status descriptions for your payment methods under SETTINGS->GUEST MANAGEMENT->INVOICES "Payment Status".

2.) Create a custom report:

  • Status = Invoice Number Assigned

then click on SAVE

  • Invoice date from / to = the period for which you want to create a report.
  • Layout = Tabular 2
  • Sort = invoice number

Drag the columns with the information you want to see from "Available Columns" to "Show Columns".

Invoice Number

Invoice Date

Invoice Item Description

Invoice Item Price

Invoice Item Vat

Invoice Item Vat %

Invoice Status Values (if you require sums for different payment methods)

Invoice Payments Value

Invoice VAT by Percentage

Example: Report on pending payments

Create a custom report:

  • Pending Payments = choose which types of bookings you want to include in the report
  • Layout = Tabular
  • Sort = check-in

Drag the columns with the information you want to see from "Available Columns" to "Show Columns". Make sure you choose the "Pending Payments" columns you want to display.

Example: Commission report for owners

Go to SETTINGS-PROPERTIES-ROOMS-SETUP and us template variables in "Room Template" to calculate the commission.

Examples:

  • If the commission you charge is 10% of the booking value including all extras use [INVOICECHARGES:10%]
  • If the commission you charge is 10% of cost of the lodging use [INVOICEUPSELLNUM0][*]0.1

Create a custom report:

  • Layout = Tabular
  • Include Totals= Property

Drag the columns with the information you want to see from "Available Columns" to "Show Columns". Make sure you choose the "Room Template" columns you are using to calculate the commission.
