Rate Types User Interface Update

ThinkReservations has updated the new Rate Types user interface. The following changes have been made based on your feedback. Thank you for your input!

Reservations and Blackouts:
The blue bar indicating reservations and blackouts was replaced. Reservations are now shown with a gray overlay, very similar to how they looked in the past. Blackouts, which were not exposed on the old interface, are represented by a dashed outline.

Tab Key Function:
The Tab key now allows you to move from one selected cell to the next going right. Similarly, Shift + Tab moves to the left. We still support using the Arrow keys to select an adjacent cell in any direction for quick edits.

"View" Menu:
We have expanded the "View" menu. This change allows you to take advantage of the customizable Summary view we recently introduced, while bringing back the ability to in-line edit any restriction. Closed on Arrival and Closed on Departure can be edited using the Space Bar.

Room Short Name:
The Room name listed on the left of the Rate Calendar now uses the Short Name if there is one set, matching your Reservation Calendar. Hovering your mouse over the room name will expose the full name with a tooltip.

More to Come...
There are additional small changes that are being addressed as well, such as making the view settings persist with your browser session and fixing a bug with mobile view. We will continue to update our documentation and videos to reflect the new changes.
