IRM.Net Version 3 ~ Rooms Calendar
Return to Index
The rooms calendar page is a way to start the reservation process by
viewing the available rooms in a grid. This view allows the user to
see availability of all the units for the dates requested as well as a few
days before and after those dates. The option to use the rooms
calendar page is available to all customers. A link directing the
guest to this page is all that is needed. An example of the link is
http://irm.resortdata.com/irmnet/res/roomscalendar.aspx . To
customize the layout of the rooms calendar page there are configuration
options in the Rooms Calendar tab of IRM.Net Configuration.
- "Allow Flexible Dates Search" - When you have flexible dates turned on
you can pick how many days before and after you would like to display
availability. If you choose to not allow flexible dates it will no longer be
an option in the search box.
- Width Boxes - Allow you to define the column sizes to the customers
- "Show Preferences Columns" - When unchecked the guest preferences to the
right of the calendar are removed. The advanced search option still works,
the columns are just hidden.
- "Show Max People Column" - When unchecked the max people allowed per
room column is hidden.
- "Display Only" - The display only column works with the rooms calendar
page by hiding the checked preferences from the advanced search. The guest
preference is still visible in the rooms grid, just not an option to use when filtering rooms.
Room Detail Descriptions & Photos
Each room number can be linked to an .htm page that the customer can put
together any way they like. They can use it to display photos, room
details, or anything else they feel is appropriate. The file just has
to be named xxxxDescLong.htm and placed in the C:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\IRMNet\Custom\DataServer\RDP01\ UserHTML folder.
Alternatively, a link to the custom file can also be
placed in the URL field on the room master without a naming requirement. The
detail page can reside on the IRM web server, for example http://localhost/IRMNet/RoomDetail/DetailPage1.htm.
It can also point to a web page on their marketing website. When a user clicks on the link a popup
window is displayed with the custom .htm file or webpage.
