Reservations - 'price altering' changes
Prices are calculated automatically as a function of two things:
- the items in your rental (and their respective Price Group)
- the duration
So what if you make a change to your reservation like:
- swapping / adding / removing items
- changing the duration
Q. what happens to the price?
A. the system will recalculate the new price after the change.
Q. what happens if you've adjusted the price to be a Top-down price? Surely I might not want the price to change automatically
A. It depends...
This has always been a controversial issue.
Until now, when you set a top-down price, BRM attempted to lock the reservation so you couldn't change either items or duration.
The trouble was, it wasn't very intuitive, and sometimes people would find a way around the lock and swap anyway....
From now on when you swap something you may see a decision box like this:
(but only if you have made your own price adjustment)
You then make the decision to keep the old price, or recalculate...
