Description. Activate the Cutoff functionality for Cutoff Days / Cutoff Date and Cutoff Procedure.

Property Determination. Do you want Opera to automatically release unused rooms back to the house from a block on a given date or do you wish for this to be a manual process? Allotted rooms for a group that are not picked up by a certain date or number of days prior to the group’s arrival can be released back to house inventory for pickup by other group or individual reservations. To release all unused allotments at one time, the cutoff function is used. Rooms can be cut off for an individual block or for all blocks at one time.

Activation / Inactivation Rules. 

If the cutoff functionality is not activated, then Opera will internally see the cutoff values for each of the days of the block as the actual block date and as such internally the rooms will be cutoff on the night that they were due to be used.  This function does not affect the manual Cutoff button.  A business block can still be cutoff manually through the Cutoff button.
