The Dashboard (Home Page)

The Dashboard, or the home page, is the first page that you see when you enter the system.

In a normal day, the Dashboard would look like this:

On the top area, there is always the black toolbar with three things:

1 Display of the current logged-in user, in the form "username@domain". For example, if you are the user "reception" of domain "theboutique", it would display "reception@theboutique". By clicking on this menu, you can see the options of changing your password and logging out from the system.
2 "Options" is the quick access to all functionality of the system. For an administrator, that would be all possible options. But for another user created from the Users page, that could be less items, depending on the permissions that the user has.
Note that this menu has more choices that the big buttons displayed in the picture with numbers 6-11.
3 Quick access to the help pages.

Below the black bar starts the main content of the Dashboard:

4 Various important notifications about channel manager, overbookings, time zone issues etc.
5 Current local date and time, updated every minute. The heart icon next to the date/time indicates the connection with the system.
Note: It is important that the date and time coincide with the ones that you have in your device. If not, go to Regional Settings to adjust the time zone of your device.

Below of the date is a black container with buttons that link to frequently used sections of the system:

6 Provides quick access to the customer management page.
7 Provides quick access to the reservations calendar.
8 Provides quick access to the reservations table.
9 Provides quick access to the room layout.
10 Provides quick access to the reports area.

12 This column displays today's arrivals.
13 It indicates today's occupancy percentage.
14 This column indicates today's departures.
15 This column indicates the customers who are currently checked-in.

Important Notifications

Important notifications appear at the top of the main page. These notifications have to do with reservations from channels (new, modified or cancelled) or overbookings. By clicking on the reservation number you can access the reservation in question.
