    Information

    Interactive Maps are a feature that enables uploading a map of the property that can be used for viewing availability or creating reservations in RMS and on the RMS Internet Booking Engine.

    Property maps that work best as an interactive map are simple outlines of Areas with the Area Description and amenities, street names and key landmarks noted.

    Property maps will need to be in JPG format and for optimal display on the RMS Internet Booking Engine will need to be at least 3200 x 1800 pixels.

    Multiple maps can be uploaded for the same property and selected by Map Name to switch views.

    Interactive Maps can be used to view availability or create reservations and include Attribute filters that will highlight matching Areas using the selected colour.

    Colour Overlays are used to highlight available, booked and attribute matched Areas on the Interactive Map and can be customised.

    Colour Views available on the Interactive Maps include Booked (Availability), Booking Source, Company, Credit Status, Expected Departures, Gender, Rate Type, Reservation Type, Reservation Status and Travel Agent.

     


    Interactive Maps are a complimentary optional feature included in the base RMS subscription.

    Properties must supply their own map images.

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



    Users will require Security Profile access to use this feature.
