Block a room from your planning to make it unavailable, and unblock it to make it available again. 
  • You can block a room from your planning, by going to Planning, and then Calendar.

    Once you can see your calendar, you can scroll through each square corresponding to a specific room and date. While scrolling, a red icon will appear with the inscription "Block room":

     If you click on it, a form will appear. You can now:

    • Define a period for the status of the selected room
    • Define the current status of the selected room: out of inventory, out of order, pre-booked
    • Add a comment

    Finally, click on Block room to register your action

    To unblock a room, click on the blocked room on your calendar, and select Available in the status menu. To save, click on Open room.

    Blocking a room from your calendar will automatically update the availability in your inventory.

     

  • To block accommodation for bookings, you can first log in to the application. Then, you can block accommodation from the planning or from the inventory.

    1. From the planning
      Click on the red icon at the top right of the day and room you want to block.

      From here, you can:

      • Define a period for the status of the selected room
      • Define the current status of the selected room: out of inventory, out of order, pre-booked
      • Add a comment

    2. From the inventory
      Then, go to the section “Inventory” and click on the day you want to block a room:

      Then, choose the room you want to block and change the availability to 0 on this room:

      Then, the room will be blocked, and it will not be possible to book this room for this day, on both the booking engine and the OTAs.
