PARS import and export

Have you ever considered making a backup of your prices, allotment and restriction for statistical, reporting or statistical purposes?
If so you could try exporting your data into an excel file by few simple clicks in Price, Allotment and Restrictions section.
From now on you can also import your prices, allotment and restrictions via excel file into the Channel Manager.

How to do it?

Please visit Prices, Allotment and Restrictions page and export your data into an excel file. In case your requested date range is lengthy we will deliver your report via an email few minutes later.
Modify any rates, allotments and restrictions and upload the file back via Import button. The channel manager will save your modified data in the calendar and send it out to all connected channels.
Feel free to modify any rates, allotments or restriction but at the same please keep the file format intact and do not erase any rows or columns.

History logs

The channel manager records all your activity or PMS’s activity and gives you the access to history logs.
As you can expect even dozen or so million operations from every month might be recorded for a medium size or larger property with PMS connected to YieldPlanet.
Givining you access to such a large volume of data is a challenge and that is why we enhanced the mechanism of displaying your historical logs.
From now on searching within a history returns results faster. In case of larger data amount we will deliver you report via an email few minutes after requesting logs.
Anytime you can also retrieve history logs into an excel file for further analysis later.
