Using Business Blocks

A Business Block is a collection of information, shared by PMS and S&C, that relates all the details concerning a specific piece of group business. The Business Block information may involve Contacts, room blocks, catering events, and other features. The S&C Business Block feature lets you set up and maintain business blocks.

Access the Business Management>Business Block option using the main menu selection, or by using the Blocks button on the Account or Contact screens.

Note: Before creating a Reservation or an Event, you must create a Business Block.
