Sub units

If you need to add a new unit type (parent unit) before adding a new sub-unit then follow this guide on Units.

A sub-unit is a way of creating multiple copies of the same kind of rentable thing (a unit). Subunits are typically used in camping or touring parks for individual pitches – but can be used for fixed lodges, caravans and other properties wherever the rules for each sub-unit remain broadly the same as the parent unit.

Please note: a sub-unit will always look at the settings and rates on the PARENT UNIT, unless you override them on the sub-unit level. So, if you want all your subunits to inherit the settings you’ve put on the parent unit, just keep all the subunit settings set at zero.

In particular, the available date range of all subunits under a unit need to be the same. 

However, maximum / minimum occupancy and pricing can differ from subunit to subunit.

If you put pricing in at the sub unit level to override that of the parent unit, the parent unit still needs to hold some price value, so that availability on that unit remains active.

Go to SETUP > CONFIGURATION > UNITS > SELECT THE CATEGORY > SELECT THE UNIT

From the drop down menus, choose which category you would like your sub-unit to appear in. Next, select the type of unit which your sub-unit belongs to.

Next create your new sub-unit by clicking on the “new sub-unit” button on the next set of options presented to you.

Define the name of your new unit and decide whether you want it to be available online as well as in the admin area. Press OK. Make sure that the “active” box is checked if you want it be live and ready to accept bookings.

If you want to add multiple subunits, tick the box saying ‘add multiple units‘ and choose the number the series will start from (usually 1), to the end of the series (the number of subunits you want to add)

Your new sub-unit(s) will now appear in the green list. The sub-unit will by default use the same settings as the parent unit.

 

Once you have saved your new sub-unit(s) you will need to double click on the sub unit’s green bar to put in individual settings: Details, Description, Options and Search Filters.

Details is where you can control your occupancy levels on a sub-unit level if you need to. Maybe you have a particularly small pitch that you know will only take a max of 4 people.

Description is where you give the pitch some more detail if you wish, eg. it is on a slope or near a hedgerow.

Options is where you can enter the size of the pitch, which in turn shows in the drop down list in the booking process if you have enabled Show Pitch Size under the Options tab at Unit level.

 

Lastly, you can enable your Search Filters under the last tab. Typically this is used at sub-unit level to denote pet-friendly or disabled access pitches.
