Room Types - Making a room type inactive will prevent ALL rooms of that type from being booked on line. (See also Block Selected Room(s) from being booked by selected date(s).)
Room Numbers - Numeric Only. No duplicates. Must be allocated a Room Type. Making a room number inactive prevents it from being booked online, from the moment it is made inactive until the moment it is re-activated.
Room Prices - The price set in the system is the Normal Rate for the Room, all Seasonal rates are calculated from this price.
Discounts - Optional. The system is currently designed to apply discounts on ranges of multiple nights and then apply a discount.
However you could say run a promotion of say ‘For Every 5 nights booked get another 1 Free’. You would then set the Discount to be 0-5* nights at 0%, 6-6 nights 16.67%, 7-7 nights 14.29%, 8-8 nights 12.25%, 9-9 nights 11.11%, 10-10 nights 20%, 11-11 nights 18.18%, 12-12 nights 16.67%, 13-13 nights 15.38%, 14-14 nights 14.29%. Etc.
*They must book 6 nights to get the sixth Free.
(Nights must not overlap in each group of nights. eg: 0-3, 4-7, 8-12 etc.)
Seasons - Seasons must NOT overlap, and must cover every day in the year. Seasons must be set in the system to cover at least the bookable dates online plus some, as the bookable date range on line advances one day every day. Customers can book up to 1 year and 10 days from the current date.
(Suggestion: Always keep at least 2 Years worth of Seasons in the table.)
