  1. Some hotels would like the ability to overbook room types due to cancellation, no shows and early departures. Would like to have the ability to overbook a room type within limits set by the user. Example, 20 available king rooms. Sell to Capacity to 22. Therefore, we authorize a maximum of 22 king rooms to be sold. These reservations would fall into the pink overbooking timeline and could be upgraded from there based upon the property operating model. Currently, we have no way to do this and may not be able to reach 100% occupancy. These Sell to Capacity would…

  2. When using Mews to book a reservation, there are times a manager needs to have the ability to override the restrictions and "Force-Sell" a room. Example the property may have a 2 night minimum, but wants to book a VIP for 1 night only. The process now is to remove the restriction, book the reservation and put the restriction back on which exposes availability. Better to have a NS (Normal Sell using restrictions) and FS (Force-Sell with overrides restrictions) for Management use only.

  3. Receive a notification (email) when a guest orders a product or service as an upsell at the kiosk check-in process. Currently this is only possible for all products and services ordered through both commander and channel. We would like to see the option to enable notifications only for kiosk transactions. In this way the reception knows which actions to take next.

  4. Have a link to directly downlad the api for the Mews Application for android and apple phones. As we have company pads and phones and do not want to use our private gmail accounts to access google appsstore.

    Hello Niklas,

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We have reviewed your request and searched for options that can solve it.

    In the Apple AppStore, it is only possible to download an application via the store. As commercial developers, we are not permitted by Apple to provide an alternative means of providing access to applications listed in the AppStore.

    I the case of Android, it would be possible to provide an .apk file that can be saved locally on a device. However, the biggest limitation here is that for applications installed using this method, we unable to automatically update the application. This would lead to security risks for the file, as well as the risk that a user will lose access once the older version of the application has been deprecated.

    For the reasons listed above we are unable to provide an alternate means of accessing the app…

  5. When moving a reservation from one category to another, one must first unlock to change the room category. Then the system assigns the room to a room in that category automatically, then we need to unlock the system again to move the guest to the room which we have already decided to move them to.

    Can th the lock function not lock in when changing room categories as the process is not complete until we move them to the correct room. Or just make it that when you change room category that Mews does not assign any room to the…

  6. When you move a reserveration from one room to another, both rooms become dirty. Is it possible to add an option in stay for the new room (which is inspected)
    to stay inspected.

    That the room that the guest has moved to stays inspected. The prior rooms can stay dirty just the new room keeps it status. As after midnight inspected rooms become clean then dirty after housekeeping intervall. This way we can keep track of linen change and don't have to manually change it after every move.

    Just have as an option if other hotels don't use the system…

    Hello from the Mews product team,

    Thank you for your suggestion, we have updated your request and set it as one to be upvoted by the Mews Community.

    Remember you can share a link to your request so that your colleagues can also upvote your suggestion.

  7. When adding a service product to a booking, if you enter 10 or under as the amount, it will split it in to 10 separate lines which can be moved to different bills if necessary. If you post over 10, it will combine in to 1 lump sum which is less clear and gives VAT rounding differences. Can the limit of 10 be increased to 31 so a whole month of a charge could be created and split in to different lines?

  8. Currently, the Mews Manager Report provides day by day revenue and basic statistics. Group by Accounting Category perfect. However, it would be great to add another filter to be able to see a complete breakdown of Occupancy %, Room Revenue by Market Segment including Rooms Occupied, ADR, Room Revenue, Number of Guests all in one report.

    This filter currently exists in the Reservations Report. This is extremely helpful to see this complete detail on one report rather than have to go to another report to find the detail. As it exists now, Room Statistics and Revenue are Totals only. Save…

  9. Due to corona, German VAT for food was reduced from 19% to 7%. (There were other tax reductions already last year due to corona from 19-16% and mews handled everything fine).
    Now the problem is that the product "breakfast" includes both food and drinks and therefore has to have 2 splits of tax.
    I.e. if the total price is 15€, 10€ need to be taxed with 7% and 5€ with 19%. But in the mews products, I can only put one VAT Tax per procuct.
    So some German Mews hotels add an extra product after every booking of breakfast manually…

  10. If you have been off for a few days, when you log in you receive all past messages which is annoying. Would it be possible to only receive message sent/received for the day you log in versus past history of messages?

  11. Do we have the ability to Batch Post Charges on a billing screen to multiple accounts at the same time with different amounts? This would be a one time manual posting and not reoccurring.
    Example:
    A tour group charges a fee per bag of $5.00. Staff count the number of bags delivered per guest. List provided to front desk. Each one could be different or the same amount per room. Not included in the room charge as the tour operator pays or in some cases the guest pays but not normally. There are 50 people on the tour. Currently each…

  12. Mews rounds per item at the end down to 0.00 (inconsistent) dropping the 3rd decimal.
    Channel Manager rounds at the end down to 0.000
    US Taxes the Total Price.

    Leaves $0.01 at times from 3rd party booking engine to the PMS.

    Example:
    Rate = 299.00
    Tax @ 13.45% = 40.2155 (IBE 3rd parties round up/down)
    Total = $339.22

    However, Mews drops the 3rd decimal in the tax and returns $40.21. Therefore, the Total in Mews is $339.21 versus the IBE by 3rd parties (iHotelier and SynXis) which round up/down at the 3rd decimal.

    This results in some cases a $0.01…

  13. Need to have the ability to automatically pre-authorize full room + tax + additional amount per night or per stay.

    When a guest books a reservation, the day of their arrival a credit card pre-authorization is charged based upon the hotels guidelines. It could be $50 to $250 above the full room + tax charges depending upon the property as well as the space type. In several systems, it is automated. In SNT online check-in, we created a pre-authorization at time of online check-in. Therefore, when the room was already pre-paid or when a guest still had a balance due…

  14. Would like the ability to save favorite reports in Mews rather than have to reset the filters each time. We can save this for export, but if I only wish to view the report, I must reset the filters each time and remember the previous setting used. This is cumbersome and prone to mistakes.

    If there was a favorite report section under the burger menu, it would be easy to access specific areas in Mews to display reports that are frequently used. These can be exported or printed, but in most cases, just need to be able to save the…

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    It is currently possible to view your favorite reports with the filters preselected by using custom links. You can set this up by:

    1. Opening a report in Mews > select the filters you require.
    2. Click “View” to apply the filters.
    3. Copy the URL and paste it in as a custom link.
    4. Save your custom link and refresh the page
    5. You will now be able to access the report with pre-selected filters by opening the burger menu > select custom links > select the custom link you have created

    It is also possible to access the custom links using a keyboard shortcut. You can learn more about both in the guide linked below:

    https://intercom.help/mews-systems/en/articles/4244312-create-modify-or-delete-a-custom-link

  15. Currently the Reservations Report Arrival screen can be viewed. Many properties print this report to view any actionable items or notes. Currently, Mew has an export but the data has all the reservation information including address, credit card details, etc... that is not needed. Just need the ability to view/print on PDF basic guest arrival information especially notes that fit on a page.

    These reports are not just backup reports, but used every day by the front desk team and are printed/viewed upon demand.

  16. Confirmed, Consumed and Forecasted Revenue, Room Nights and ADR on the books by Market Segment for a specific date span. Example, if I wanted to see on Total On the Books for June and today is June 10, I would select June 1 to June 30 date span. This would show me consumed revenue for the first 9 days and confirmed revenue from June 10 to June 30. Summary Report only. No details other than options to show all Segments or just Transient, Group, House Use, Comp, Out of Order. Total at the Bottom of the report, Days of the…

  17. Would like to have the ability to view/export/print a day by day market segment report for a specific date span. This could be for past dates or future dates. This would include only totals, no details or drill down required, of room nights, ADR by market segment. Would also be good to show Period to Date, Year to Date, Period to Date Last Year and YTD Last Year with Summary Totals at the bottom of the report. This would make it easier for property management and revenue management teams to see how they are performing as compared to Last Year.…

  19. It would be useful to add information in the Action Log on which guest was added to a reservation (either the name or a link, or by implementing a customer's profile identification number). Indeed, some customers sometimes have overnight guest(s) for only few nights during their stay, but after the occupancy is brought back to 1 Adult, it is not possible to trace back who was the second guest. In this sense, it could be useful to see in the Action Log which guest was added instead of only seeing the change in Occupancy.

  20. Allow for a 'rate cap' or 'maximum threshold' for space categories that are derived by a percentage increase off the base rate.

    For example: a space category that decreases 20% off base rate would not be allowed to reach below $.xx or above $.xx
