An Overview of the Based On & Copy From Setting


Based On rates are created with the intention of always being tied to or bound to their “parent rate” specifications. As a result, Based On rates will always reflect changes made to the “original” or “parent” rate. This tool can help you quickly create a mirror image of an existing rate that will replicate the same settings configured in the parent rate. 


For our users that want to quickly create a rate that pulls data from an existing rate – but do NOT want the rate to be structurally bound to the existing rate – you are recommended to use the Copy From option during rate setup. 

With the Copy From button, hotels can take an existing rate and modify it to create a completely new rate. This eliminates the need for the user to manually re-enter rate details during rate creation. Using Copy From produces a new rate that is entirely separate from the original rate it was copied from. 

Locate the Based On/Copy From setting in Settings > Rates > Rates > Choose an existing rate or select +Add New.
