In this section, you can create Rooms for your Property. To start, click on the “Create a new Room Type” button.
Start by entering the name of the Room Type, enter how many types of rooms of this kind you have, and then enter a short description of the room type (up to 500 characters)
Next, you need to fill out the answer to the question listed on the screen. This includes how many bedrooms there are, how many guests to a room, the total number of beds, number of bathrooms, the type of bathrooms, and if the bathroom has a shower and/or bath.
After filling out the answer to those questions, scroll down and select the features that the room type offers. You can select as many features as you want that apply to the room type you are creating.
After filling out the features, you can now name each of the individual rooms and set their booking status. The number of rooms that appears here is dependent on how many rooms of this type you entered in earlier. For each of the rooms, enter the name you want. Then decide if you want to publish the room, or keep it hidden. Finally, you can select if you want to make the room Active or Inactive.
Next is the Bed Configurations for this room type. Click on the “Add Configuration” button, and then a list of all the bed configurations will appear.
Choose the bed configurations you wish to apply to the room type, then click “Save Configuration”. It will then be listed on screen. You can then add, edit or delete bed configurations to your liking.
Lastly, you can upload images for the room type. You can upload a maximum of 10 images, with a maximum file size per photo is 2MB. Only JPG, PNG and TIF file types will be accepted. Drag or drop the photos, or choose files from your PC.
Once you have finished uploading photos, click on the “Save This Room Type” button. Your new Room type will now be listed on screen, to which you can now create a new room type or edit existing ones.
Once you are happy, you can move onto Rate Plans.
Important Note for current ResBook users: The Onboarding wizard will create a single stock unit for any Room Type with the number of rooms set to 1.
If the number of rooms exceed 1, it will assume you are creating multiple of the same "Room type" and thus the Setup Wizard will create multiple stock units under a classification automatically for you.
