The yearly deals page is where you can see each rate plans Availability, Rates, Stop Sell, Min Nights and Inclusions for the next two years. This will provide you with a great way to see what's available for sale and what's not. You can also do Bulk Updates from this screen. To find out more on this go to Bulk Updates.
The Yearly Deals page also allows you to set individual rates or stop sells across particular distribution channels. An example of using this would be if you wanted to add a flaming deal on Wotif. To see the current overrides you have for certain channels, you can do so via the Channel Overrides Report. Please see below for more detailed information.
1.Click the "Yearly Deals" tab
2.Choose the rate plan you would like to view or amend.
3.You can choose to edit your standard rates which go to all distribution channels, or you can select a particular distribution channel to edit. Click here to view more information on updating individual distribution channels.
4.Once the rate plan loads, choose what you would like to edit. There are five tabs. You can use these tabs to switch between views, Availability will show you how many rooms are available instead of the rates as seen below, Stop Sell will show you the dates that are Stop Sold etc. This calendar will always default to open on the Availability view.
5.Choose which days of the week you would like to make changes for.
6.Using your mouse, select which dates you would like to change. You can click on individual dates, or alternatively you can click on the first date and whilst holding your left mouse button down, drag you mouse pointer to the last date you would like to change. If you make a mistake, click on "Clear Dates".
7.Once you have selected the dates to change, enter the new value and click on "Save"
8.On the calendar, you will notice some dates are pink with a red cross (Stop Sell) in the corner. This means that date is not for sale because they have a stop sell set.
9.You will also see other dates that are pink with no red cross. These again are not for sale due to no availability.
10.You can create seasons to assist you. Please see Creating Seasons below.
11.Once you have created a season you can choose it from the drop down list.
Overrides are a great feature of ResOnline that easily allows you to adjust rates or stop sells for a particular channel.

7.And enter the value and "Save"
