ThinkReservations allows you to configure pricing in multiple rate types for each room for the next two years. We recommend that you overview your pricing and restrictions on a weekly basis for just a few minutes to see if any manual changes need to be made or to enter pricing at the end of your Calendar. Follow the six steps below to set your pricing for each rate type.

1.) Click settings in the black bar in the top right.
2.) Click Rate Types on the left.
3.) Click on the rate type that you wish to edit. Changes made to the rate type's Rates & Restrictions tab will apply to this rate and any rate types which are derived from it. Other rate types in your account that are not derived will need to be updated manually
Make sure that you have the box checked next to the rooms that belong in this rate type.
4.) Inside the rate type, click Rates & Restrictions tab at the top. Here you will see a special version of the Calendar where you can enter new pricing or edit the pricing currently set. Each block or cell is a room-date pair where you can set the appropriate rate. This is also where you program other restrictions, such as your Minimum nights.
5.) Edit the prices on the Calendar to set them as you wish. See below for more help on how to best do that.
Editing the number on the Edit Rate Type Calendar.
There are three ways or options to configure your pricing using the Calendar:
Option 1 - Direct Edit to Price
Click directly on the price you want to change. Type the new rate to update the cell.
Click multiple cells that you want to change by clicking and dragging. Holding down the Ctrl key allows you to select cells that are not next to each other and holding down the Shift key will connect two selections. You can make an additional selection now if you need to. If you messed up, you can click Clear Selection and start again.
Verify you have selected the desired blocks visually on the Calendar. They will be highlighted in a light blue, similar to how the weekends are highlighted. You can also see exactly how many blocks are selected just above the Calendar.
Option 3 - Begin with Modify
Use the Modify tool. The Modify tool lets you choose dates and rooms. This is the easiest option for setting bulk restrictions. Select the Date range, Days of the week, and Room Types you would like to adjust. Click Select.
In the pop-up, modify the following:
- DATE RANGE: select the date range you would like to update.
- ROOM TYPES: mark the rooms that you wish to modify.
- DAYS OF THE WEEK: the "Weekdays" and "Weekends" buttons easily change the selection.
- SELECT: click select to make adjustments
The Modify tool allows you to make multiple changes at once if the Rates & Restrictions toggle is set to Summary. Decide what changes to make and click Update once complete. Seven restrictions can be configured, although typically a business will only configure a subset of these:
Important final step. Once you are done, please check your work and then click the Save button at the bottom right. Once you save, there is no undo.
Complete for each rate type you need to modify. Rate types are not linked to one another if the Pricing selection in the rate type is "Set rates and restrictions manually."
