  1. Some regular guests have fixed specific request they always need: bath, low floor, diabetic, …
    At this moment we can put this in the profile of the guest ‘intern information’.
    Problem is when we’re making a new reservations we don’t see this information automatically.
    We’re obliged to go to the profile of the guests and then to have a look in the submenu ‘intern information’.
    Is there no other option to see this automatically in notifications, or somewhere else, so we don’t have to check for every new reservation if the guests has intern information?

  2. Bonjour,

    Afin de pouvoir programmer correctement mon contrat de location sur Zapier, il me faudrait pouvoir retrouver le montant total de ma réservation pour l'intégrer dans mon document légal.

    Or mews n'envoie pas cette donnée dans Zapier (impossible de la retrouver dans les zap). Pourriez vous remédier à ce problème pour que mon établissement puisse se mettre dans le l'égalité du droit de location de meublés en France ?

    Merci par avance.

  3. In the call reservations/getall, 'Cancellation Reason' is not included in the response. This would provide integration partners with more granular data of why a reservation was cancelled and improve 3rd party reporting and revenue management. Available information for cancellation reasons from the system would include:
    - COVID-19
    - Other
    - Confirmation missed
    - Booked elsewhere
    - Force majeure
    - Guest complaint
    - No show
    - Price is too high
    - Service not available
    - Input error
    - Invalid payment
    - Travel agency
    - Requested by guest

  5. Is there any way we could have an "Orders/GetAll" API call? The reason for this is the ability to grab notes stored in an order which is not linked to a reservation. Please note that those notes are different from the notes existing in the respective accounting items.

    These standalone orders can be found in the bottom section (Orders) of a customer dashboard in the front end, along with their Notes we want, which currently cannot be extracted through the Mews API.

    This ORDERS dataset being taken from such an API call would also be useful for reporting since the…

    In the meantime, if would be very helpful for us if you could expand on your use case for the notes. How do you intent do use the orders/GetAll endpoint with its notes?

  6. We are working with Wihp to display our rates on Google. Actually Mews is not able to provide the cancellation deadline for each rates, other OTAs are able to provide rates per room category and with cancelation deadline. We need to be able as well to show to our customers our cancelation policy per rate category.

  7. When retrieving reservations with the 'Resources' extent the inactive spaces are not included in the response. This means an additional call to resources/getAll to retrieve also the inactive resources.

    Adding the inactive resources to reservations/getAll would circumvent this.

  8. There are some endpoints (for example: the /reservations/search endpoint) that allow us to query certain objects like reservations that were created or modified in a certain time interval. If the time interval causes Mews to fetch too many objects, it will return a 408. This can be less straightforward for the caller as the caller does not know in which time interval most creations/modifications happened and the caller will thus keep calling the endpoint until the time interval is finally small enough for the request to succeed. As you can see, this can/will result in several consecutive failing calls which…

  9. Currently occupancy or capacity information (adultCount, childCount) is only available in event data after the user has selected a room, however the data is available in the UI when the list of rooms is shown to the user.

    For 3rd party tools (like price comparisons widgets) that need to compare rooms with capacity information this presents a real data accuracy problem.

    If the data could be exposed on each availableRoom in the distributorAvailabilityLoaded event it would not only ensure the event is consistent with the UI but also improve the accuracy of third party tools.

  11. Let's take for an example the hotel "Hôtel Golf Château de Chailly".
    After calling the "rules/getAll" and "products/getAll" we see that the product "6c5ed799-2e8a-4a18-8325-ac7a0086a886" is applied for "ResourceCategoryType" equals to "Room" and "Suite". But it's not added to the price displayed on the booking engine, for example, for tarif "7c58c0e7-64f2-41d6-aaff-ac6f00c31da1" and room "7599d179-e235-4894-9310-ac6f00c320ff".

    You colleague explained us that this product is the city tax. And as this product has the option Exclude price from offer so only the price of the room will appear on the distributor.

    But how can we know if the product has this option (Exclude from…

  14. Hi,
    currently outlets have only 3 properties - Id, IsActive and Name. We would utilize one more property named 'ExternalCode' that would make mapping of POS system revenue centers to Mews outlets easier. Currently we need to rely on using the same name of both sides, which is prone to typo error. It could be more reliable if there can be some configurable external numeric code available on Mews side for mapping.

    We reopened this request for further upvotes. It is fairly clear what is being requested and it will need more investigation from Mews. In the mean time we would ask you to continue to up vote if this is still a required connectivity feature request.

  16. Integration partners can retrieve the estimated transaction fee via accountingItems/getAll, with CreditCardTransaction extent.

    The "Fee" parameter gives the estimated transaction fee value. (https://mews-systems.gitbook.io/connector-api/operations/finance#credit-card-transaction)

    However, with the recent feature release of transaction fee adjustments for select properties, the updated fees are not returned, and can cause discrepancy between data in Mews PMS and in other systems (e.g. accounting, business intelligence, etc).

    In the exported Payment Report, "Fee total net"/"Fee total" refers to the estimated transaction fee and will be displayed "Fee" parameter in the CreditCardTransaction object. On the other hand, "Adjusted total fee" in the same report refers to…

    - When was it last modified?
    - When was it cancelled (/closed)?

  20. Users in Mews can choose from a pre-defined list of reasons when manually cancelling reservations in the reservations module in Mews PMS.

    However, when a reservation is cancelled via API, the cancellation reason defaults to "Other".

    It would be great to be able to also specify cancellation reason via the API (drawing from the pre-defined list available in Mews) so that integration partners can help keep the reservations reporting as accurate as possible.
