What are the different features of the Smart View?

1. The Feeds

Selecting the View:

On the top right of the Smart View you can choose between two options:

4. Smart View Date Picker

Click on the date or arrow to open the drop-down that lets you choose a date range.

When you select the end date we immediately pull the data for the dates selected and adjust the view. This will be applied to the graph, table, and calendar perspectives.

5. Filters

Click on the funnel in the top right corner to start using the filter.

Tailor the graph to your needs by selecting only the information relevant to you.

6. City Demand and occupancy rate

At the bottom of the Smart View you'll see a row of bar graphs that display:

  • the occupancy rate for your hotel (left bar)
  • the city demand in your location (right bar)

This data is synchronized with your PMS and allows you to make an accurate comparison between the two data sets. (If your occupancy information is not yet integrated, please contact our support team.)

7. The export button

You can export and save a Smart View as an Excel file.

Click on the arrow on top of the page > OK.

I’m not a big fan of graphs, can I see the data in another way?

If charts and graphs don't do it for you, worry not!

You can decide to view your information in a table or calendar layout.

To do so, click on the icons as circled in the image below:

Overwhelmed by the result?

The table view can make navigation easy-peasy.

Or check the data from the calendar view.

Whenever you wish to return to the graph view, click on the graph symbol again:
