Long Term Reservation Configuration
Added 10/18/2006 - Article ID#: KWin0027
As of Revision 1.263, there are still several types of long term reservations
available to customers. However, all systems are shipped with the standard
long term reservation ability governed by C1RT switches. The additional
long term types are:
When Switch C1LT is set to yes, long term charges are posted
every 30 days. For example, if a reservation is made with
Arrival = January 15, 2005 for 150 days, then charges are posted for this reservation on February 14th, March

Day of Month Rent is to be Posted
When posting charges on a monthly basis (using Switch C1MONTH), select a date from the drop-down to designate which date the charges are processed each month. The default is set to 15. For example, set the day for posting as the 20th. The long term totals are defined as the total of all transactions through the last day of the current month. From the 1st to the 19th of the month, future reservations are always the totals for the first month of the arrival date. If the day of the month is set to the 20th or more, the long term totals are defined as the total of all transactions through the end of the next month. Only dates 1 through 28 are available, since 29, 30, and 31 are not available in all months.
When C1MONTH is active, C1MONTH2 can be set to yes so the system posts rent for the current month only. If set to No, once the reservation is checked-in and nightly charges are posted (or the day is closed for VRS customers), the system posts the arrival month's rent plus the next full month's rent (the first two months of rent). All subsequent postings are for the following month.
When Switch C1HABIT is set to Yes, the Habitat tab displays in
Reservation Configuration. A phone folio prompt is added to the new reservation
process and printing long term reservation statements is
available. For information on
how system administrators should set up this feature, see
Long Term Billing Installation.
