Use the Rooms Management>Maintenance option to record maintenance requests for your guest rooms. Maintenance requests can include actions from changing a light bulb to repairing a dripping tap, or checking the air conditioning. With the Maintenance option you can record maintenance requests, view them and resolve them. Resolved maintenance requests are purged from the OPERA system after 60 days.

If you want to view or insert a maintenance request for a particular room number, you can enter the number in the Room field. Otherwise, scroll down and OPERA will display a list with recorded room maintenance requests.

Maintenance Grid

The maintenance grid shows the recorded maintenance requests with the room number, room type, housekeeping and front office status, the maintenance reason code and remarks. Resolved requests are marked with a Y in the Resolved column, and you will see the corresponding date in the On Date column and the ID of the user who entered that the request was resolved in the By column. As you move the cursor from request to request, in the bottom section of the screen, you can see any additional comments that were recorded for the selected request, when the entry was last changed and by whom.
