Ability to set rate for all rooms in a group reservation, simultaneously
For large groups with negotiated rates, where all rooms are the same rate, it would be very helpful to be able to override the rate on the Group Master to have this rate apply to all the rooms in the group.
I work at a hotel that negotiates special rates for individual groups, separately, and does not use one or two rate types for all group reservations. As of right now, the only way override rates, to add a negotiated rate, is to override the base rate for each individual room in the group. When you book 30-50 room groups, this can become quite tedious and time consuming.
Thank you for your suggestion on a way we can improve RMS 9+.
As part of our ongoing enhancements to the functions available to Group Reservations, the ability to override all siblings within a group from a single screen is currently available within RMS 9+ Beta.
Whilst viewing any Group Reservation, navigate to the Area tab and select ‘Update Sibling’ from the bottom of the screen. This menu will provide multiple options for bulk updating the siblings within the group simultaneously, including the ability to override the Base Rate, set a Discount or change the Rate Type for one or many of the siblings in one screen.

agreed! but unfortunately we have proposed this idea for the past 6 years to no avail.
