Create price lists
You can have as many price lists as you need. Each booking agency could have each own seasons and price list. To create a price list first you have to create the seasons, then you need to create a special season calendar and then the price list.
Step 1: Seasons
To create a new season, go to settings and click 'Seasons'. Click on the 'New season' button. You can name the seasons as you like (eg. high, low, season A, season B etc.). Apply a different color to each season. Click OK. If you have different seasons for different booking agencies, please set them here so you can use them in Special calendars.
Step 2: Special calendars
Special calendars are either related to seasons (seasons calendars) or have to do with a special price being active/enabled or not (yes/no calendars). They are used in different areas in the system but mainly in price lists.
