Housekeeping Sections

When the Rooms Management>Housekeeping Sections application parameter is set to Y, housekeeping section codes can be configured to divide the property into physical housekeeping areas to simplify the process of assigning rooms to attendants for daily cleaning. OPERA allows for both day and evening  sections (day section is for regular room cleaning and evening is for turndown service) to be linked to each room (see Rooms Edit for details) . The same section can be used for both day and evening service. To configure housekeeping sections, select Configuration>Reservations>Codes>Housekeeping Sections. The Housekeeping Sections screen appears.

Note: All configured sections are displayed in the Expanded Task Sheet Grid, even if no rooms exist within that section. Tasks can then be moved (dragged and dropped) on to these sections.
