Description.  Ability to indicate one reservation as the primary share. This will not allow the user to make any reservation changes or postings to the 'non-primary' share guest(s).

Internal Name. PRIMARY_SHARE

Property Determination. When guests are sharing, automatic and manual posting transactions for the sharing guests can be maintained on separate Billing screens. Separate folios can be generated for the sharers. Optionally, a "perfect share" can be set up whereby charges for all sharers are automatically routed to one of the sharers who is designated as the "primary" sharer. You may not set up a perfect share once any of the sharing guests has checked in. When the primary sharer checks out, the other sharers are automatically checked out.
