There are two types of unit exclusion available. The first type is a full exclusion such as when the room is out for maintenance and will be treated as a non bookable for occupancy reporting. A full exclusion requires the exclusion to be removed before any bookings can be inserted. A partial or web exclusion has now been added as a second option. A web exclusion will prevent any sales channels or website bookings from being assigned to these units but you can enter a back end booking without needing to delete the exclusion first.
A partial or web exclusion is still treated as bookable as far as the occupancy report is concerned.
Follow the instructions below to exclude a unit.
|1||Log into your Seekom iBex account.|
|2||From the Admin menu, select Calendar|
|3||From the View selector, select Unit Exclude.|
|4||3 options are available – Exclude Full, Exclude Web and Include – select option required|
|5||Tick start date and end date for unit to be excluded (or included).|

See sample screen image below. Fully excluded units are coloured red, web excluded units are coloured green.
To create a booking over a web exclusion, simply click on the X (in calendar unit view screen – see sample screen image below) and it will open a new booking screen and allow you to overwite the exclusion. You will be advised that an exclusion exists in the status field of the unit selected but it is a warning only.
If you attempt to create a booking on a fully excluded unit by clicking on the X (in calendar unit view screen – see sample screen image below), it will open the booking screen but the unit selected will not appear for selection.
