Open the booking mask by double-clicking a specific room on the desired day, or by pressing the button New booking in the area overview:
The room reservation could look like this:
Room for Heike Richter, 2 nights 27.07. to 29.07.2017
Select the article for this booking by entering it in the field Main article or via the list button on the right side. If the guest has booked half board and/or green fee, please enter the appropriate check-marks (or price changes).
The reservation for a single room with half board is ready and looks like this:

The group booking is done…..
But the article is still missing…

Start the process of creating a provisional booking after pressing the button on the left side:
The following window opens:
Please select the category “provisional, valid until” and fill-in the date field.
In the Hotel bookings window you can see the provisional booking with the corresponding icon.
First of all, make a normal booking over the desired period:
for example: a double room for 2 persons, over 3 nights:
If, for example, Mrs. Petra Member only needs this reservation for the first two nights, click Cancel and delete the corresponding line:
As soon as you confirm with OK, the button individual arrival / departure of single guests of the room becomes active.
And the booking in the hotel timetable looks like this: Heike Richter is the only guest in this room for the last night.
Now another person wants to spend this night (from 22 to 23.09.17) in room E09. The button individual arrival/departure of single guests of the room must be disabled.
Then you can enter the name of the guest, in our example Claudia Member, as the 3rd name in the booking mask, and accordingly activate the deletion via the Cancel button:
Heike Richter and Claudia Member spend the last night in room E09:
It is customary in the hotel industry to only book room categories, and assign the room numbers to the guests on the day of arrival. This is also possible in PC CADDIE.
The current room situation can be viewed at any time with the help of the area overview. This shows how many rooms are booked or still available and their cathegory. See also section overview of areas.
The reservations without room assignments are also visible in the Hotel Bookings window (Timetable - Hotel Booking).
They are marked in blue and the room number is missing.
The night automatics ensures that every night the rooms are automatically assigned (before the arrival of the guest).
Of course you can manually assign the room numbers at any time. It is also possible to mix bookings with fixed room numbers and category bookings.
Deleted room bookings can be displayed in the Hotel Bookings window using the filter, but they cannot be reactivated.

Enter the different price levels defined in your hotel under Edit price levels.
Press New to create a new price level.
Please fill-in the field Description with your desired name. PC CADDIE automatically assigns the identifier.
Once all price levels have been defined, they are displayed in an article under Details and the tab Price levels:
Please enter your own prices in the appropriate line for the respective price level.
When is each price valid? Define the answer in the rules. Enter the appropriate rules for the price levels defined in your hotel under Edit rules of price levels.

During the night, the items of the guests who have checked-in will be booked into the corresponding accounts, and will then be available for billing in the morning.
If the night automatics cannot make all the bookings for all the rooms (for example, because one guest arrived after 23:00), the process can be started manually via: Timetable, Hotel-Rooms.
In the following window you will find the two options offered by PC CADDIE for the night run:
The items are booked manually if a guest wants to pay on the day of arrival - see next section.
A guest wants to settle his bill on the day of arrival; the items are now booked manually:
PC CADDIE fills-in the fields for the booked articles:

Press OK again to confirm the payment.
The guest wants to pay on the day of departure. Click again on the booking and then on the button Settle.
Pressing OK means the payment is completed and the invoice is printed at the same time.

Change the person to the one who pays and confirm with OK.

If a hotel guest (or several guests) books a room with half board, there are two options for entering the HB in the hotel booking. Regardless of which variant you choose, the input is always R:HP.
1. The guest (or a group) books one (or more) double rooms and half-board applies to the entire booking - i.e. for several people. To do this, use the text field from the left of the window. As you can see in the example here - half board is calculated for 2 people.
2. the guest (or a group) books one (or more) double rooms and half-board ONLY applies to single persons or room. To do this, use the information field from the booking. As you can see in the example here - half board is calculated for 1 person.
The window Timetable - Hotel guests shows the number of guests on the respective day:

If the “Document Management Module” (CRM) is licensed for your golf course, you can also use this for your hotel reservations, for example for retracing the reservation confirmations.
More about the Document Management Module CRM
You have to set up a category to be able to use the CRM for the hotel reservations; it essentially looks like this: the abbreviation must be PROJHT and the type must be set to PROJECT.
If you now click on CRM when you make a reservation, you will see that each reservation is automatically assigned a project. Reservation confirmations can be stored here and can be traced at any time.
You can save the print-outs under the project. The printouts are automatically assigned the correct project number.
You can select the template after you click Pint (ask our support).
Print as usually on the screen and save in CRM. The right project is automatically determined. The PDF is open for re-use, and can be printed or sent by e-mail. The mail address of the hotel customer is already in the Windows cache and only needs to be inserted into the mailbox with “CTRL + V”.
You can see all the stored print-outs and attachments in CRM. Select the line with the desired print-out and open it again with Edit, if necessary.
