Overview

The GDS Configuration screen allows entry of configuration data for GDS providers and GDS to RDP Room Type conversions.  Click GDS from the System | Configuration menu to access the tabs.

Hotel Code
Enter the code provided to the property by the GDS provider.
Hotel Name
Enter the property's name as it should display for the GDS provider.
Username
Enter the login agreed upon between the property and the GDS provider.
Password
Enter the password agreed upon between the property and the GDS provider.
Password Confirm
Enter the password agreed upon between the property and GDS provider again.  The Password and Password Confirm fields must be an identical match for the login to be successful.  Copying the text from the Password field to the Password Confirm field is not allowed.
Send Errors To
Enter the email address of the person at the property who should receive notification of errors within the GDS interface.
Do Not Send Rate Updates
When checked, the RDPWin does not send rate information to the GDS interface.
Use "House" Block for Availability
When checked, a specific block is not required for the select GDS provider access.  Availability is displayed and updated using the "House" block.  This would be same availability if making a non-group block reservation directly in RDPWin. Checking this box also enables the Group column on the GDS Rate Plans tab.
Enable Reservation Retrieval Using RDPWin Monitor
When checked, reservations made using the GDS interface will be retrieved using the RDPWin Monitor service that runs on the RDP data server. This service runs in the background and checks for new reservations every few minutes based on the number of minutes configured. If this is unchecked, reservations will not automatically be entered in RDPWin.
Log XML Messages
This box should only be checked when directed by RDP Support. This is used to troubleshoot issues with the GDS interface by enable logging.
Auto Assign Room When Making Reservation
When checked, the system will automatically assign the room to the reservation. This was added because the GDS does not allow guests to choose specific rooms. Note: if the same room is not available for the guest's entire stay, the GDS will still complete the reservation but it will be entered as an inventory reservation with no room assigned.
Agent #
If the GDS reservation should be assigned a travel agent, enter the agent number or click the Find button next to the field to search for the agent.
Agent Commission
If an agent number is assigned, then select the appropriate commission code for the agent's GDS reservations. This commission amount may differ from the commission configured on the agent master.
Default Number of Night to Sync Rates & Availability
Enter the number of nights for the default when syncing rates and availability with the GDS. This is the number of days in advanced the GDS publishes rates and availability for the property. When Sync GDS Avail/Rates from the Night Audit menu is run, the number of nights appears as the default, however this can be overridden. This is also available for properties the automatically sync.
