ALERTS: The following alerts are available:
- Not bookable alert- this will show if the hotel isn’t available to be booked, and will check availability, rates, tariff valid dates etc. (not doing at min so change for this)
- Key dates / Demand- this will show to the top 3 dates that were searched for in the past 48 hours, if they’re above the threshold for each county. Currently, the threshold for each county is set at 178. This was calculated based on averages of searches. We will monitor and adjust if necessary.
- High noavailability- This compares an average no available search count for the past year to the average no available search for the past week. If the past week’s average is higher than the yearly average, the alert will display.
BUSINESS ON THE BOOKS:
- This section looks at what business the hotel has on the books and what it picks up between now and the end of a particular month to see where it will finish in regards to sales i.e. ahead of last year or behind.
