Create a property
Within one account, you can create as many properties as you want to. Generally, one property is one hotel, having its own name and address.
To create a property, choose Account in the context selector in the top left corner, and navigate to the Property section.
Much of the data is mandatory, and we recommend you gather the following information before you start setting up a property.
Displayed and used for bookings
- Name and description, translated in all supported languages
- Check-in and check-out times
Once you created a property, you can choose it in the context selector. If you have more than one property, all show here.
Create unit groups
Unit groups are apaleo's room types. Choose your new property in the context selector, and navigate to Inventory > Unit Groups. Prepare names and descriptions in all languages you want to support. This data will be shown to guests and when making bookings. No worries if you do not have everything prepared, you can enter draft texts and change then later at any time. Beware that the Codes cannot be edited at a later stage.
We recommend keeping the number of unit groups low, to simplify the booking process.
Optionally you can define a rank for the unit groups. The unit groups will then always be sorted in the order from the lowest rank to the highest rank for offers or in the availability calendar etc.
There are two ways to set up units. If you do have standardized rooms, that share a description, we recommend using multi-create:
- Enter the number of units that have the same description and unit group
- Enter a name for each unit. You can use the TAB key on your keyboard to quickly switch between the name fields.
- Fill in the shared description, and select the unit group and maximum number of persons
The units can later be changed individually.
If you have very special rooms, you can also create those units one by one. Make sure to navigate back to the list and then click + New units after saving each room. Otherwise you will only change the existing unit, instead of creating new ones.
