The first release includes the ability to apply schedules to bookings which will appear on a Time Servicing sheet.


The time servicing sheet is for the housekeeper to record the status of the schedule eg. serviced, waiting service, in service semi serviced and unserviceable. This will also populate on the Bookings Calendar with a colour.


Setting Room Servicing Schedules


The room servicing scheduler is used to set up your types of schedules which can be triggered by arrival, departure and “X” days from arrival. There is also the ability to add a service type that can be set manually, either on a booking or unit.

When you are in an existing schedule you will see the “Actions” box on the right hand side where you can: create a new schedule, copy the rules for a new schedule to be created, or return to the main room servicing schedules menu.


To add a new Room Servicing Schedule:

  • Click on “Manage Room Servicing Rules” (found under the subheading “Property”)
  • Click on the button “Add New Schedule” and you will see the following options in the picture below:

NameWhere you will give a schedule a name

Description: Can add additional details of what the schedule does

Status: Setting it “On” will apply to all existing future bookings. Setting it “Off” will remove it from existing future bookings.

NOTE: Depending on the number of bookings in your account, the system can take a few minutes to update all your future bookings.

Room Type: You can select to have this schedule only apply to certain room types.

Triggered By Booking

You can select the checkbox On Arrival where the rule will schedule on the arrival date of the booking

You can select the checkbox On Departure where the rule will will schedule on the departure date of the booking

You can select the checkbox Every “X” days from arrival where the schedule will display every X days from the arrival date of the booking (For example if I put in “5” then the schedule will appear every 5th day after their arrival).

This is where you can create a schedule which can be later manually added on the booking or unit.

  • “On” meaning the schedule will update all future bookings
  • “Off’ meaning the schedule will be removed for all all future bookings; although if the schedule has been used on a past booking and has been serviced this will remain recorded on the booking and unit.





Room Servicing Timesheet


This is used by the housekeepers to change the service status where they can add notes or read notes. You have the ability to Bulk add comments and statuses as well.


Click on “Room Servicing Timesheet” found under the subheading “Property” in the side menu.


The “Date From” and Date To” picker is defaulted a week but can be changed to a selected date period.


Please Note: The Timesheet is NOT the new housekeeping report, this will be released in Part 2. Although there will be enhancements made to the Timesheet; such as the ability to filter on service types, save your Date From/To options to daily, weekly or monthly, and the ability to order the a column by clicking on the header name.


To update only only one schedule click the grey “Edit” button - you can then apply comments if you wish, select the service type and and click “Update”.

See screenshot below how the Timesheet works:
