  • Or, if you've already defined your Group, you can begin making reservations by selecting Menu > Front Desk > Create Reservation


For a rate to appear in a group, it must meet the following conditions for one of three group types:

1. Corporate Reservation: This is the reservation to which a Company Card is attached. The rate code should have a rate type that is classified as CORPORATE. To add a corporate rate, navigate to Settings > Rates > Rate Types > +ADD NEW.

2. Group Reservation: This can be accessed from Groups > New Group OR Manage Group. The rate code should have a rate type that is classified as GROUP. To add a group rate, navigate to Settings > Rates > Rate Types > +ADD NEW.

3. Public Reservation: The rate code will be classified as PUBLIC and is for the general public; thus, the reservation is not associated with any Corporate or Group Reservations. To add a public rate, navigate to Settings > Rates > Rate Types > +ADD NEW.
