    Information

    The Control Panel on the Rate Manager Chart enables viewing and managing restrictions and overrides for rates and availability.

    Existing restrictions can be edited, copied or deleted by selecting the checkbox for a Restriction or Override and selecting the  'Edit',  'Copy' or  'Delete' icon.

    RMS will use the newest record when more than one exists for the same date and Restriction Type.

    The following restrictions and overrides are available in the Control Panel.

    Restriction Description
    Allotments Allocate inventory available to a connected channel for selected Rate Types.
    Any Day Within Stay (Soft Close)
    Length of Stay Restriction that determines the minimum reservation period using all reservation stay dates.

    Reservations with a stay date that falls within a Soft Close period will have the longest length of stay restriction applied.
    Close Rate Close Rate prevents use of the selected Rate Type without closing availability of the Category for House Use reservations.
    Closed to Arrival Closed to Arrival allows reservations to stay in house or depart on the selected dates without allowing arrivals on that date.
    Closed to Departure Closed to Departure allows reservations to arrive or stay in house on the selected dates without allowing departure on that date.
    Deposit Policy Set an alternate deposit policy to any Online Deposit or Rate Deposit.
    Last Area Value Set the minimum value (hurdle rate) that the Rate Amount can be set to for the last available Area in the Category.
    The value entered will be used as a benchmark value preventing the Rate Type from being available if the Rate Amount would be lower than the value entered.
    Last Area Value Yield Adjustment The Yield Adjustment Value will be used in conjunction with the Last Area Value set to calculate the Rate Amount for Rate Types that include Commissions or Packages.
    The adjustment amount can be used to balance any package or commission component that would otherwise cause the Rate Amount to fall below the benchmark set as the Last Area Value.
    Max Property Oversell Set the maximum amount of inventory above physical inventory at the property that can be sold.
    This limit will restrict the total number of reservations above physical inventory and overrides any Oversell Allotment set on a Category.
    On Arrival Day Only (MLOS) Set a Length of Stay Restriction determined by the reservation's arrival date.
    Oversell Allotment Set a value of inventory above the physical inventory in a Category that can be sold.
    Rate Adjustment Set a percentage or flat amount value to be added or subtracted from the calculated Base Rate Amount.
    Rate Override Set a new Base Rate Amount for the selected Rate Type.
    Sale Set a spotlight on the selected dates for the RMS Internet Booking Engine Rate Grid to highlight a special rate or deal.
    Set Daily BAR Set the Best Available Rate Type to be used for a date range when using Multiple Best Available Rates.
    Stop Sell Close availability for the selected Category and Rate Type.

    The following options can be used to cancel multiple restrictions or overrides.

    Option Description
    Clear Close Rate Cancels the Close Rate set for the same date range without removing the record from the Control Panel.
    Clear Closed to Arrival Cancels the Closed to Arrival set for the same date range without removing the record from the Control Panel.
