Occasionally a subscriber will have a property that can be rented in different configurations. A lockout is basically a dependency. For example if Unit A is rented, then don't allow Units B, C and D to rent. Configuring your lockout will block Units B, C, and D if Unit A is rented.

Blocked Dates as a Result of a Lockout
On the Calendar Tape, after a reservation is made for a property with a lockout dependency, the units locked out by the rental are blocked off in black and a comment is displayed "Blocked due to rental of [property name]." The blocks can be easily removed at any time by double clicking on the block for each unit.
Rules of a Lockout
We have setup a couple of rules to keep the interface manageable.
Single unit properties can only lockout single unit properties
Roomtypes can only lockout roomtypes belonging to the same multi-unit property.
