Reservation Snapshot Screen

When you make a Cross Selling reservation in PMS (Reservation>Cross Selling), the Reservation Snapshot screen appears automatically after the confirmation number is assigned and before the closing script displays. (The Cross Selling option is available with the OPERA multi-property (OPP MHT2) add on license code.) In ORS (when the OPR<version number>ORS license code is active), this screen also appears automatically after the confirmation number is assigned and before the closing script displays (after you save your changes).

You can access the Reservation Snapshot screen to view existing reservations too. At the ORS Sales screen select the Lookup button. At the ORS Reservation Lookup screen, highlight the reservation and select the Select button.

Use the Reservation Snapshot screen to review a summary of a guest's complete itinerary. The screen lists each reservation (sometimes referred to as a "leg") of the itinerary. The Reservation Snapshot screen allows you to quickly view or make changes to existing reservations.

Note: The itinerary feature is very flexible. For example, itinerary reservations may have legs at different properties; legs at the same property, but for different stay dates; or legs at the same property and for the same stay dates, but for different profiles. There can also be gaps in the stay dates. For example, leg one might reserve stay dates in January and leg two might reserve stay dates in March. When booking an itinerary from the Snapshot screen, and a potential gap or overlap (stay dates overlapping another reservation) occur for the same profile, a prompt appears asking the user if they wish to continue. If the user continues to make the reservation (creating either a gap or overlap) this reservation appears as the color 'magenta' in the Reservation Detail grid for easy identification. This message prompt can be hidden with a default value selected, see Popup Messages for details.

Note: When the OPR<version number>ORS and OPI<version number>OCIS license codes are active and the Award Redemption functionality has been set up, the Rate Info tab is replaced by the Award Info tab. See ORS/OCIS Sales Screen Award Redemption for more information.

The confirmation number displays at the title bar of the Reservation Snapshot screen. The following source details are provided in the lower part of the screen.

Created By. User name who made the reservation.

Created On. Date the reservation was created.

Updated By. User name who performed the last update actions.

Updated On. Date on which the reservation was last updated.

The Reservation Snapshot screen is divided into sections for quick viewing.
