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 who 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.
