Update availability to sales channels
In some instances, iBex will not automatically send updates to the online sales channels that your account is connected to so you must manually force iBex to send the update. Instances include:
- When you change the On Request Threshold
- When you change the On Request Lead Time
- When you change any room or rate descriptions (for example, the Rate Inclusions)
In these circumstances follow the instructions below to force a re-synch/update to a channel.
|From left menu select Sales Channels > Search sales channel|
|At connected channels grid, click ID of required Sales Channel. |
In the example below bookcom will be selected.
|Click Channel Mapping tab. See example image below. |
|Click Save & Update Channel button|
|Wait a few minutes and click the View Log button (bottom left corner).|
When you make a change in iBex, the update is sent to the channel instantly. However queues can build up at sales channels which may cause delays in their processing of updates.Consider adding a safety buffer through setting an on request threshold.
|If you have performed the connection successfully you will see OK messages for inventory and rates. |
|To repeat for further sales channels, select another sales channel at Jump To selector (see sample screen image below) and repeat step 4. |
