Upgrade Type Setup Details
A blank form will open when you add a new upgrade type, while a form with existing upgrade type details will open when you select to edit an upgrade type. Fields with asterisks are required.
Choose a property from the drop-down list of the properties to which you have access.
Select either Room or Add-on.
When 2-Way PMS integration is enabled, add-on upgrade types are not available.
Enter the actual code for the room type, or add-on type, as defined in your PMS.
You must create an upgrade type for every room code used for booked and upgrade room options.
When the threshold amount is defined as equal to or greater than the available room count (inventory), the room type will not appear in the Guest Portal as an upgrade option.
Depending on your configuration, "Inventory" and "Threshold" may or may not be supported.
Enter a name for the room upgrade or add-on type, which will appear as a header in the Guest Portal.
Add a succinct and enticing description of the room upgrade or add-on type, which will appear in the Guest Portal. Bulleted lists are recommended. Content may not exceed 1,000 characters. Use the editor to format and style the description, add links and more.
If you have added languages in Settings, you must enter a name and description for each language. German is enabled in the screen shot above. You would expand the German section to add a name and description in German. Read more.
Check this box if the price of the Upgrade Type is applicable per night of stay, rather than a one time fee.
Check this box to display an image(s) of the Upgrade Type Guest Portal.
Use the Room Images tab to add images to Room Upgrades and Add-ons.
When Yes is selected, the upgrade type is enabled and available to be used to configure upgrade rules. When No is selected, the upgrade type is disabled and not available to be used to configure upgrade rules. Disabling an upgrade type will not delete it from your account.
Disabling an upgrade type will automatically disable all upgrade rules associated with the upgrade type.
