Restructure your inventory
Sometimes you want to re-structure the way you categorised and sell your inventory. Maybe some of your rooms do have some special features and you want to allow your guests to book those rooms explicitly.
The first step is to create the new unit groups and then navigate to every unit you want to switch and select the new unit group. See Manage your inventory for more details.
Start selling the new inventory
The new unit groups will not be available to sell as long as you have not set up rate plans for them. Also you need to set up the new room categories in all your distribution channels and map the new rate plans. It might be that you need to reach out to the account manager of your channel manager for that purpose.
Things to consider
- When you restructure your inventory you most likely have some categories oversold. Until all the existing reservations have been cancelled or checked out you will have to assign some of the reservations to other categories than originally booked.
- If you have reservations from OTAs that were booked on room categories that now have lower count, the guests might not be able to change their travel dates on the OTA anymore.
- Try to avoid modifying reservations you received from OTA, GDS or travel agents within apaleo as this might lead to problems as soon as the reservation will be modified on the original booking channel.
