The “Properties” section of MyVR is where any user will start to create a new property. For each added property, it's possible to view and update all critical information, including descriptions, photos, rates, fees, etc. This information serves as the source for how properties are displayed on websites and connected channels, as well as how quotes and reservations are structured. There is also the ability to organize properties into groups and create regional guides to highlight recommendations and points of interest in the area.
- My Properties: All the property's information - descriptions, photos, rates, etc.
- Property Groups: A way to organize multiple properties
- Regions & Guides: A map-based tool for highlighting local points of interest
This is the primary management area of the Properties section, where rates, fees, photos, and descriptions can be managed.
To view or add properties, go to Setup > Properties > My Properties
Here there is a list of all properties entered into the account, as well as the ability to add new ones. To edit one of the properties, click the actions dropdown.
It is possible to edit any of the information about this property. When changes are made to this information, it will be reflected on websites, any connected channels, and any bookings set up within MyVR. The information is split up into the following sections:
For more information on each of these sections, have a look at the Add a Property tutorial.
A property group is a tool for organizing properties. Create as many groups as needed, and a property can be a member of more than one group. As an example, there could be a group for a region or neighborhood, or properties could be grouped based on a property feature like "beachfront" or "4 bedrooms."
These groups can then be used in a number of ways, including:
- Creating a properties page on the website that lists properties from only one group
- Allowing visitors to the website the ability to filter properties using the property groups
- Sending different automated messages to guests based on property groups
To view or add property groups, go to Setup > Properties > Groups
Once a group is created, it's up to the user to determine which properties are included and excluded.
Regions & Guides
Any number of guides can be created for the regions that are relevant to properties. The guide is a map-based way to show guests points of interest in that region - restaurants, tourist attractions, event centers, etc.
To view or add a regional guide, go to Setup > Properties > Regions & Guides
Once a region has been added, the user can then include points of interest by either searching for them (using Google Places) or adding a custom point of interest by dropping a pin on the map.
After setting up the guide, the user then associates it with the properties where the guide should be available.
To associate a guide with a property, go to Setup > Properties > My Properties > [property name] > Location and Area
