The Visual Rates Tape (VRT) allows you to override rates and settings for specific days. This allows you to update specific dates without affecting any other dates in the rate period.

Overview of the VRT

  1. Choose the setting you want to update

  2. Select the date range

  3. Optionally show only certain days of the week within the selected date range

  4. Select the properties you want to change

  5. Click the "Change" button for the date you want to update

Change All

You can change all rates by clicking Select All ( 1 ) then Change All ( 2 ). This will allow you to change all dates displayed on the screen at once.

VRT Settings

The VRT can be used to adjust four different settings...

  1. Nightly Rates

  2. Minimum Night rules

  3. Close for Arrival / Departure: This means that a guest can be at the property on that day, but cannot check in or out on that day. This is often set for holidays such as Christmas or Thanksgiving.

  4. Arrival / Departure Day

Examples

Here is a video illustrating how the VRT works:

How to Reset Rates on the VRT

The VRT is also where rates and rules are pushed into Lodgix from dynamic pricing providers like Pricelabs and Beyond Pricing.   

When / if disconnecting from a dynamic pricing provider, you may want to start using the rates setup on Lodgix again.  If that is the case, the rates being displayed on the VRT will need to be reset.

  1. Select All properties

  2. Change All

  3. Click Reset

  4. Choose from "Reset selected days" or "Reset all days". If resetting all rates you would choose "Reset all days"
