User dependent restrictions:
- Allow manual entry of Rates: Allows user to manually change a Rate. Else they can only book rates set in the system.
- Allow Overbooking: This allows the user to book beyond your current availability. The business use is that sometimes hotels do over-sell some Room Types in order to move around bookings or account for likely cancellation rates. Recommended setting is "No"
- Settle Credit Cards: Displays the "Settle Credit Cards" button in Night Audit. (Must be signed up for MyCard credit card payment gateway to use this)
- View Manage Credit Cards Screen : Displays the "Manage Credit Card" link in the Booking Details. Should you wish to not allow a User to view the full credit card numbers, this is how to disable their access to viewing anything other than the 'last 4 digits' and expiry.
- MyGuest Access. This allows you to establish whether a User can login and/or use the MyGuest 'app' explained at: http://hotel.bookingcenter.com.
- Country: This allows a manager to set a restriction for a user to only login via the Country where the User should be logging in.
- Country Login Allow: This allows a manager to enforce that the Country set above is where the User is actually logging in. Choices are only 'the Country' or 'all Countries'. BookingCenter enforces this via a subscription to an IP service that attempts to take the IP address from the request and verify it is likely in the country where the User has been set. While not perfect, this helps avoid 'phishing' and fraudulent logins.
- Allow VPN: For Users who use VPNs to access services from differing locales (thus IP address verification is intentionally being circumvented) this setting can allow an exception for this specific user.
Managing and Auditing the User Access
- Status: Active means the User can login, while INACTIVE means the User will no longer be able to login (though all past activity is retained for reporting).
- From: is the date the user is active.
- Created: date User was created.
- Last Changed: date the User record was last edited.
