Once you have gone through your onboarding and are starting to become more au fait with the platform as each day passes, we highly recommend setting up and making use of our Segmentation feature.
Segmentation is a great way to categorise or "segment" the business sources unique to your property/group and report on the production of these segments at a more granular level.
Real World Example: Your hotel may be located near one or more national embassies and might get a fair amount of contracted, government related business. If you have rate plans specific to these bookings, you would simply create a new segment ("Gov") and attach this new segment you created, to the appropriate rate plans.
