Availability Blocks pick up pattern
When I enter a block pattern (example: 4-7-5-5-3) the system makes me pick the rooms up as if I have 4 rooms staying for one night, then 7 rooms staying for one night, then 5 rooms staying for 2 nights etc. instead of staggered arrivals with different lengths of stay like blocks typically are. Can that be changed?
Hello from the Mews product team,
Thank you for your suggestion. Availability blocks in Mews allow for availability to be adjusted per space category per day as you have described above. When availability is adjusted, a set number of spaces are removed from public availability per day.
It is possible to support staggered arrival dates within an availability block, however the arrival dates are limited within the contractual constraints agreed upon i.e the number of spaces made available per day.
Based on your example above, it appears that you are referring to run of house reservations. Is that the case?
I would be very happy to organise a call with you to discuss your use case further. If you would be interested in sharing more via back with us via a call please let us know by responding to this email.

Hello, I just submitted something but I think you misunderstood me because it was released. I'm aware of how to enter different room quantities for each date, but when I receive the actual rooming list from the client, I'm unable to enter the reservations as they are. Ex. if the pattern is 4-5-7-7-6 I can enter it in the block this way, but it forces me to pick it up as if I have (4) reservations staying for one night, then (5) reservations staying for one night, then (7) reservations staying for (2) nights, then (6) rooms staying for (1) night. instead of staggered arrivals with different lengths of stay which is what room blocks typically are.
