Where can I find this feature in the platform?
This feature is visible when clicking on the "Room" drop-down menu which can be found on the blue menu bar at the top of the page.
What does it do?
Historically, our partners had to create "Views" in "Settings", then map those views to various competitor room types. We have heard from our partners that comparing apples to apples is very important to them and that we should make this process simpler.
It was therefore decided to allow partners to do this comparison without having to go through the process of creating views and mapping rooms every time they created a new calendar overview.
How can our partners use it?
Partners can now pick any combination of room/rate types on the calendar view (as long as these rooms/rates categories exist on Booking.com) and we will show them the rates for this automatically.
There is no need to go to Settings to do this.
We also proceed with default competitor room mappings (based on Extranet standard room type) and allow our partners to overwrite this mapping under "Settings".
