New Feature: Unit Type Pricing
TRACK now supports unit type pricing in addition to unit pricing. Unit type pricing can be applied to both seasons and daily pricing. If a unit type has a rate for a season or a night and a unit within that unit type lacks a season or daily price for those dates, that unit will utilize its unit type price. The order of inheritance is season unit type > daily unit type > season unit > daily unit, with daily unit pricing being the source of truth and highest priority. In addition to preparation for supporting unit type booking, unit type pricing is very useful for property managers with multiple units in a unit type that typically have the same rates. An example of this would be a condo resort where a property manager has a number of units with the same layout in their inventory. The unit type price can be set and inherited to all the units in the unit type. Additionally any individual units in that same unit type that require or warrant unique pricing, setting such on the unit will override unit type pricing without changes to the rest of the units in the unit type. Unit type pricing can also be used an insurance that a unit will have a bare minimum rate as a back up to unit rates, if any date has a rate missing from the rate table that date would inherit the unit type rate as a backup.
Important notes and changes to seasons in Track
– All seasons and season rates will convert to new format
– Any new or edited seasons must be 7 nights or longer
– Calendar groups are now set on the unit type, not on the unit. In order to edit any season pricing a calendar group MUST be added to the unit type for the unit type to be available in the drop down.
New Feature: Duplication of Seasons and Rates
Seasons and rates (unit type and unit) on a season can now be copied to a new season. When viewing existing seasons we have added a duplicate button. When the duplicate button is selected the resulting modal will allow for a new season to be created. You can name the new season, keep the dates (start and stop dates will be set to one year later by default) or modify the dates, and set rates. The rates can either be copied exact from the existing season, copied and modified by a percentage, or copied and modified by a flat dollar amount. Upon save the new season will exist with rates set (both by unit type and by unit) reflecting the method above applied to them.
