How to refresh your availability after making changes to your account

How you know you need to refresh your availability

Have you ever seen this yellow banner come down from the top of your screen and hang around till you click on it?

Refresh alert

 

It’s trying to tell you that you need to refresh your availability.

Whenever you change some vital aspect of your booking system, it needs to be refreshed in order to update and recalculate your overall availability and your availability chart.

In other words, refreshing drops the old records and allows the system to update it with the new things you’ve put in.

You need to refresh your system when you have:

  • changed a unit’s name, its type or the details on it like the maximum occupancy
  • added new date bands
  • altered your existing rates
  • or changed any fundamental thing which affects how your availability chart works

If you forget to refresh, then your changes won’t be fully saved. 

 

Refreshing your availability

To refresh your availability, you can either  click on Tools > Refresh Availability OR you can click on the yellow banner itself to clear it away.

 

Then, all you need to do is to follow these instructions. Simples!

Going LIVE Checklist

So, you’ve played around with all of the settings, checked all your rates, chosen and configured your AddOns and had all of your booking pages styled.  We recommend at this point that you go through the following ‘test-booking’ steps to make sure your account is ready to be switched on to start taking real bookings through your website and over the telephone.

Top Tip: While making test bookings on your account, always make sure you use an email address that’s not the same as your company address. Use something like jack@yahoo.co.uk.

Cascading tariffs and how they work

Cascading rates are a special kind of daily rate that allows you to charge a different price during the same date range depending on the customer’s length of stay.  

Cascading rates only work when you’re charging less on a daily basis as the length of stay increases.
