The Housekeeping module lets users generate housekeeping jobs and run daily rosters through their ResBook account with ease. The module simplifies the tracking and maintenance of these tasks.
To access the Housekeeping module settings use the navigation menu across the top of the ResBook site and hover over Housekeeping, then select [Cleaning Settings].
Creating default cleaning settings:
a) Setting an Automatic default
For most accommodation providers who have rooms/properties cleaned on regular days, we encourage you to appoint a default setting in ResBook.
Follow these steps outlined below to ensure you correctly assign the automatic cleaning entries:
Step1: Supply a number for Days between Clean.
Step 2: If you wish to allocate any override commands for the mid-stay cleaning, this field needs to be set as appropriate.
Step 3: Add cleaning entries in automatically as soon as a booking is entered into ResBook.
Step 4: Adding Multiple cleans on the same day, i.e: if you wish to allow a changeover/mid-stay clean to be assigned on the same day, then this should be selected as "Yes" but if you only require automated entries made for one cleaning entry have this field selected as "No".
|Step 5: Once all the appropriate fields are filled in, select [SAVE].|
b) Manually updating cleaning entries:
Should you wish to apply cleaning entries for a specific time frame MANUALLY, use the function that appears on the bottom of the settings page.
|1. Apply a date range for the cleaning entries.|
2. Click [Add] to populate the cleaning entries on to your calendar.
Please note: Any changes made to the Housekeeping settings, will NOT be retrospective and will apply only to bookings made after the date of changes.
