    Information

    An Interconnecting Category is used for Areas that can be booked individually or combined to create a larger Area with different pricing structures.

    A Category is a type of Area that can be used for reservations.

    Areas are the spaces that can be booked by visitors and are grouped together within a Category.

    Interconnecting Areas can be configured in multiple combinations consisting of the same Areas.

    Allotments can only be made for an Interconnecting Area when using the 'Area' Allotment Type.

    Performing a Room Move for a Reservation in an Interconnecting Area will not create a Split Reservation. The Reservation will be updated to the new Interconnecting Area and the previous Area shown in the Audit Trail of the Reservation.

    Interconnecting Areas can only be moved to an inactive Category and not another active Category.

    Owner Accounting Properties only need to add the Owner Contract to the Interconnecting Master Area and not the individual Areas that are used in combination for the Interconnecting Area.



    Category, Area, Reservation, Guest and Rate are default System Labels that can be customised.



    System Administrators will require Security Profile access to setup this feature.
