Showing In-House Guests Without Nationality Filled In


In order to not have too many undefined entries in the nationality reports required in some countries; reservations for guests with no nationality on the guest card need to be easily identifiable so users can add the nationality. To achieve this, add a filter to In-House report to show reservations with guests with no nationality only.


Steps to produce:

  • Menu > Reports > Search for In-House Guest Reports
  • In search parameters, be sure to select NO NATIONALITY

  • ***We have also preserved the nationality and country details only. If the user has current or future reservations or a hotel loyalty program attached to the reservation, you will not be able to remove the details.***



Commissions 

  • Updating TA after commission calculation
  • The user is now able to add/remove the TA and associated commissions during and after check-out. If EOD has already occurred, staff will need to manually calculate the commissions. If the reservation is in-house or the EOD has not run for departure reservations, the system will calculate the commissions.
  •  Travel Agent association cannot be removed from a reservation with a status that is “paid/hold”




Printing Travel Agent Commission Report
