Rover Rate Relationships 


Rover is not designed to allow a single rate to become linked to a parent (Based On) rate after the fact. If you need a rate code to be based on another rate code, you will have to recreate it from Settings > Rates > Rates > +ADD NEW. If the rate has not been used yet, you can simply delete it and create a new one with the same code. If the rate has been used, you can change the code to be able to reuse it.



With that said, as of Release Notes (v.5.12), we have significantly changed the way rates are configured in Rover. These modifications include changes to Based On/Copy From rates, Extra Adult/Child rates, and Parent/Child rate relationships. You can find an explanation of these changes below.


Extra Adult/Child Rates Calculated by the % Offset Min. Value for the Extra Adult/Child Amount


The EXTRA ADULT/CHILD MIN. AMOUNT THRESHOLD setting now found in Settings > Rates > Rates > +ADD NEW/Edit Rate updates Extra Adult/Child rates according to the amount specified. This prevents Extra Adult/Child rates from going to zero (or below a specific amount that’s based off the parent rate) when an offset is applied to the base rate.




Based On/Copy From Rate: Round to the Nearest 10 Decimals or Nearest Full Amount


When using the BASED ON/COPY FROM feature in Settings > Rates > Rates > +ADD NEW/Edit Rate, you can now select to round a rate up/down to the nearest 10 decimals or the nearest full amount.




Break Parent/Child Rate Relationship


If you have a child rate based on a parent rate, you can now navigate to Settings > Rates > Rates > +ADD NEW/Edit Rate, take that child rate, and remove the parent rate to make the child rate its own parent rate. That rate then acts as a parent rate and can be edited or modified as a standalone rate.



Link a Child Rate to a New Parent Rate


In Settings > Rates > Rates > +ADD NEW/Edit Rate, you can now take a child rate and move it from one parent rate to another parent rate. This child rate will accordingly inherit the new parent rate amounts.
