    Information

    Oversell Allotment determines the number of reservations above physical inventory in a Category that can be created.

    A Maximum Property Oversell will limit the total number of reservations above inventory across the property and will take precedence over any Oversell Allotment or Category Oversell setup.

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

    The following options are available to determine when an Oversell Allotment comes into effect.

    Option Description
    Date Range Apply the inventory allotment for a single date range, multiple date ranges or permanently.
    Day of the Week Apply the inventory allotment for set days of the week within the date range.
    Occupancy Set an occupancy benchmark that will prompt the inventory allotment to come into effect once reached.
    Occupancy will be determined using the Occupancy Calculation Rule for the Property.
    X Nights from Today Set an inventory allotment with a lead time that rolls forward by the entered number of days.
    This option will set the allotment to always start the entered number of days ahead of the current date.



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



    Users will require Security Profile access to use this feature.
