To begin using the RezStream Booking Engine with RezStream Professional, you must first establish a

details.
Many settings from RezStream Professional are automatically uploaded to the RezStream Booking Engine.
Once your information is uploaded to the RezStream Booking Engine, you must then finish the setup
process by completing additional online steps described in this document. Once the setup is complete, the
final step in taking your RezStream Booking Engine “live” involves placing a link to the RezStream Booking
Engine on your website. You are then ready to receive online reservations 24 hours a day without any
human interaction needed.

RATE PLANS, RATE NAMES, AND RATE SEASONS
From RezStream Professional, click Tools > Unit and Rate Setup and select the Unit Rate Plans tab to verify
that Rate Plans, Rate Names, and Rate Seasons are configured correctly for the RezStream Booking
Engine.
RATE PLANS
The RezStream Booking Engine can be configured to allow Internet guests to make reservations
for a room type, without selecting a specific room. For example, an Internet guest may book a
reservation for a “King” room. In this guide, this type of reservation will be referred to as an
Inventory reservation.
If your property intends to allow Inventory reservations, rate plans should describe room types.
In addition, the name of each rate plan should be clear and concise, allowing the Internet guest
to easily recognize the type of accommodation being booked. Rate plan names are viewed by
Internet guests booking reservations via the RezStream Booking Engine. In the example below,
an Internet guest has already entered arrival and departure dates in the RezStream Booking
Engine. Next, available rate plans are displayed – Queen Queen, King, and Suite.

RezStream Professional Booking Engine User’s Guide
The rate plans displayed in the RezStream Booking Engine are defined in RezStream Professional
by clicking Tools > Unit and Rate Setup and selecting the Unit Rate Plans tab.
With descriptive rate plans set up in RezStream Professional, an Internet guest making a
reservation via the RezStream Booking Engine will be able to easily identify the types of
accommodations available at your property.
RATE NAMES
The rate names section of the Unit Rate Plans tab contains a “Bookable” checkbox. This checkbox
determines whether or not the rate names (Rack and AAA) will be available in the RezStream
Booking Engine. Click the Bookable checkbox for all rate names that will be available to potential
online guests. In the example below, the Rack and AAA rate names for the Queen Queen rate
plan will be bookable on the RezStream Booking Engine.
However, assume the property is not currently allowing Internet guests to book meeting rooms via
the RezStream Booking Engine. For these rate plans, the Bookable checkbox will be left blank in
the Rate Names table (see example below).

RATE SEASONS
Most properties will configure the RezStream Booking Engine to accept reservations up to one year
in the future. It is imperative that rates are also defined for that same time period. In the example
below, the Rack rate name for the Queen Queen rate plan has been defined in RezStream
Professional through 09/04/2006, accounting for seasonal rate fluctuations.
With the above rate seasons defined, an Internet guest making a reservation through the
RezStream Booking Engine for 09/05/06 – 9/08/06 would be charged $95/night on weekdays and
$115/night on weekends.
Now, let’s take a look at the Seasonal Rates table for the same property’s AAA rate name for the
King rate plan (unit type).
In the sample table displayed above, the property has never taken the time to update rate seasons
for the AAA rate. It is highly likely that reservationists at the property just override the AAA rate and
manually assign a dollar amount for the nightly charge. While this method works for RezStream
Professional, it WILL NOT WORK for the RezStream Booking Engine. In this example, all
guests selecting the AAA rate name for a King rate plan/unit type will be charged $75/night during
the week and $85/night on weekends. In this scenario, the property stands to lose a considerable
amount of revenue!
Do NOT upload your RezStream Professional settings to the RezStream Booking Engine until
each rate season is reviewed and correctly defined for one year in advance.

UNIT LONG NAMES AND STANDARD DESCRIPTIONS
From the top toolbar in RezStream Professional, click Tools > Unit and Rate Setup and then select the
Individual Units tab. From the Pick Unit list, highlight each unit that will be available to online guests and
verify that the unit long name and standard description has been configured correctly for the RezStream
Booking Engine.
Both the unit long name and standard description are critical for companies that configure the RezStream
Booking Engine to accept online reservations for individual units. A descriptive unit long name helps the
Internet guest easily identify the room type being booked. RezStream recommends appending the unit type
to the room number, for example, 101 – King.
The RezStream Booking Engine displays each room’s standard description when displaying available
rooms. If a room does not have a standard description, the RezStream Booking Engine’s “Select Room”
page will appear incomplete.
In order for a specific room to be available to online guests via the RezStream Booking Engine,
a checkmark must be added to the “Booking Engine Bookable Unit” field.
Do not proceed with the steps in “Section 2. Upload RezStream Professional Data” until you
have verified each unit long name and entered a standard description for each unit.

UNIT LONG NAME
Many properties configure the RezStream Booking Engine to assign a room when a guest makes a
reservation via the RezStream Booking Engine. This guide refers to this type of reservation as a
Pre-Assign reservation.
With the RezStream Booking Engine configured to make Pre-Assign reservations, the Internet
guest enters arrival and departure dates and then views a list of available rooms. This list of
available rooms displays the unit long name.
The unit long name is assigned in RezStream Professional by clicking Tools > Unit and Rate Setup
> Individual Units and entering a description in the Long Name field.
In order to make it easy for the Internet guest to know what type of room they are booking,
RezStream recommends appending the unit type onto the room number. For example,
101 – King, where King is the unit type.

Setup > Individual Units. Enter a detailed text description in the Standard Description field.
For properties that configure the RezStream Booking Engine to make Pre-Assign reservations,
RezStream recommends entering a standard description for each unit prior to uploading any
data to the RezStream Booking Engine.
RATE PLAN LONG DESCRIPTIONS
The RezStream Booking Engine can be configured to make reservations for unit types or specific rooms.
With the RezStream Booking Engine configured to make reservations for unit types/rate plans, a long
description can be added to each unit type/rate plan in RezStream Professional and then transferred to the
RezStream Booking Engine. The long description provides additional information about the type of
accommodation being reserved. Use the following steps to add a rate plan long description.

guests who make reservations via the RezStream Booking Engine, click its radio button in the left-hand

Confirmation letters are the only letters included in the initial upload from RezStream Professional to the
RezStream Booking Engine. If changes to these letters are made in RezStream Professional after the initial
upload, the changes must also be made in the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface
using the RezStream Booking Engine Property > Letters link.
Due to the fact that letters are not automatically synchronized after the initial upload, it is possible to use the
RezStream Professional confirmation letters as a starting point for online confirmations and customize their
content for RezStream Booking Engine online guests. Any customizations for online guests are made in the
RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface by clicking the Property > Letters link.
REASONS FOR RESERVATION

AUTO UPDATE
After completing the initial RezStream Booking Engine configuration, turn on the Auto Update feature in
RezStream Professional by clicking File > Online Availability Update > RezStream Booking Engine 3.0 >
Auto Update.
The Auto Update feature automatically synchronizes availability between RezStream Professional and the
RezStream Booking Engine.
If you are running RezStream Professional in a network environment, Auto Update only needs
to be activated on ONE computer. RezStream Professional should be left open (or minimized)
at ALL times on this computer in order to continuously receive RezStream Booking Engine
reservations.
UPLOADING REZSTREAM PROFESSIONAL CHANGES
From time to time, you may want to change settings that were uploaded from RezStream Professional to the
RezStream Booking Engine, for example, unit rates, taxes, or point of sale items. You should ONLY make
changes to these settings in RezStream Professional. Once you have changed key information within
RezStream Professional, you may then upload these changes to an existing RezStream Booking Engine
account. When these RezStream Professional configuration settings are changed, for example, a new
reason for reservation is added, the change is made in RezStream Professional and then uploaded to the
RezStream Booking Engine using the following RezStream Professional menu option.
File > Online Availability Update > RezStream Booking Engine 3.0 > Verify Configuration Data.

After selecting the Verify Configuration Data option, RezStream Professional automatically creates a
configuration file and uploads it to the RezStream Booking Engine.
After transferring the configuration file to the RezStream Booking Engine, the Complete window is displayed
and occupancy is synchronized between RezStream Professional and the RezStream Booking Engine.
RezStream recommends making a batch of changes in RezStream Professional and then
uploading the batch to the RezStream Booking Engine. Because occupancy is verified as part
of the Verify Configuration process, as more and more reservations are added, it will take longer
to complete the upload process.
NOTE REGARDING CONFIRMATION LETTERS
The “No Payment” and “Deposit Paid” confirmation letters are uploaded from RezStream
Professional to the RezStream Booking Engine during the initial configuration ONLY. They are
NOT uploaded as part of the Verify Configuration Data utility described above. Changes to letters
that should be reflected in both RezStream Professional and the RezStream Booking Engine must
be made twice, once in the RezStream Professional software and again in the RezStream Booking
Engine Online Administrative Interface.

ENTERING INFORMATION IN THE REZSTREAM
BOOKING ENGINE ONLINE ADMINISTRATIVE INTERFACE
The RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface uses web forms (pages) for gathering
information about your property.
Before we move onto the actual setup steps, we will take a moment to explain some of the web page
forms and other tools you will be using in the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative
Interface.
COMMON FORMS
Most forms use a combination of data entry fields, drop-down lists, and check boxes. The example
below shows data entry fields for entering text as well as drop-down lists. We will see this form
later under Account > Account Information > Users > Edit User Display Name.
The RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface does not allow you to manually
enter data in a drop-down list field. You MUST select an option from the drop-down list.
In the sample “User Details” form above, “First Name” is a data entry field. To enter your first
name, position the cursor at the beginning of the line and manually enter data. “Permissions” is an
example of a drop-down list. Clicking the downward arrow displays a list of choices. To access a
drop-down menu, click the down arrow. Once the list is displayed, select an option from the list.
An example of a check box is also on the User Details form above. If the “User Must Change
Password” check box is selected, users will be forced to change their password the next time they
log into the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface.

Secondary Contact – One of the property’s managers.
ACCOUNT INFORMATION > USERS
You will need to create a New User profile for each employee that will use the RezStream Booking
Engine. The RezStream Booking Engine allows for multiple users with similar or different account
permission settings. Permission settings grant full or limited access to key property information
such as unit rates and policies.
ACCOUNT INFORMATION > PHOTOS/IMAGES/MEDIA
(OPTIONAL)
Displaying images to online guests in the RezStream Booking Engine can be helpful in creating a
more visual reservation experience for your potential guests. If you want to display images of your
property, unit types, or specific rooms when a guest checks availability on your website, digitize
these images into high quality .JPEG files no larger than 200 pixels x 300 pixels.
ACCOUNT INFORMATION > AMENITIES (OPTIONAL)
The RezStream Booking Engine features two types of amenities, standard and unit level.
Amenities that describe the property as a whole are known as standard amenities. The only
properties that need to be concerned with designating standard amenities are those businesses
that are configuring the RezStream Booking Engine for multiple properties. In these instances,
compile a list of standard amenities that describe each separate property, for example:

Unit level amenities are created to describe units or unit types to Internet guests. In addition, unit
level amenities can be flagged as sortable, allowing potential guests to perform an advanced
search when making a reservation. This advanced search can help guests find rooms with specific
criteria. For many properties, unit level amenities are already defined in RezStream Professional.
However, these amenities are NOT uploaded to the RezStream Booking Engine. Use the following
steps to review unit level amenities that have been previously defined in RezStream Professional.
1.
Login to RezStream Professional.
2.
Click Tools > Unit and Rate Setup.
3.
Click the Options tab on the Unit Setup screen. Previously defined unit level amenities
are listed in the Amenities table.
4.
In most cases, the unit level amenities defined in RezStream Professional should match
the unit level amenities in the RezStream Booking Engine. If this is the case at your
property, note the unit level amenities in the Amenities table and use this information for
defining amenities in the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface.

AMENITIES (OPTIONAL)
Amenities are NOT uploaded from RezStream Professional to the RezStream Booking Engine. In
the RezStream Booking Engine, amenities can be used by Internet guests when searching for
rooms or for describing the property as a whole. Amenities that help guests search for rooms are
called searchable amenities.
For example, an Internet guest at a beachfront property may be looking for a room with an “Ocean
View.” In this example, the term “Ocean View” is a searchable unit level amenity that will allow a
guest to find accommodations with an “Ocean View.”
Amenities that describe the property as a whole are known as standard amenities. An example of
a standard amenity is a hotel’s pool as all guests have access to this amenity.
The following table lists standard and unit level amenities at our sample property.
PROPERTY LEVEL AMENITIES
Heated Pool
Full Service Spa
Exercise Room
UNIT LEVEL AMENITIES
Jacuzzi Tub
Private Balcony
King Bed
Ocean View
Handicap Accessible
Non-Smoking
All amenities are defined in the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface
Account setup menu. They are flagged as searchable or non-searchable during Property setup.
Add a New Amenity
Unit level amenities can be flagged as sortable or non-sortable. Sortable amenities are
displayed when guests enter their arrival and departure dates in the RezStream Booking
Engine. While non-sortable unit level amenities do not appear while guests are searching
for accommodations, they can be included in the available rooms listing when a guest is
selecting an accommodation.
Based on the information in the preceding table, the following amenities will be defined for
our sample property.

USER DEFINED FIELDS
If your property has customized RezStream Professional to track user defined fields in the Contact Data
screen, this same information can be collected from online guests while they are making reservations.
For example, assume your property has configured RezStream Professional to track Car License numbers.
This information is collected during the reservation process and then a “Parking Report” is generated for
in-house guests. The customization of the user defined field is made in RezStream Professional by clicking
Tools > List Edit > Labels.

6. COMPLETE PROPERTY SETUP
The Property setup menu can be used for configuring the RezStream Booking Engine for unique properties.
For example, a group of three related properties owned by the same company would be configured under
one account. However, specific information about each property would be defined in the Property setup
menu. A graphical representation of this relationship follows.
In the example above, there is one parent company, Reservation Lodging, Inc. This umbrella company
would be configured under one Account setup. Next, the RezStream Booking Engine would be customized
to operate based on which property the Internet guest selects when booking a reservation. For example,
guest letters are configured under the Property setup menu. While many of the policies for Reservation
Lodging may apply to all three properties (cancellation policies and deposit rules), the letters that guests
receive will be unique, even if the changes are subtle, such as property addresses, directions, and specific
amenities.
For single properties, the Account and Property setup menus have a one-to-one correlation.
This section will take you through the Property setup menu for our sample property. The Property menu is
organized in the order in which forms should be completed, beginning with Property Information and ending
with Website Availability Calendars.
As of February 2007, the Community Membership feature is not fully implemented and there is
no action item to complete under this link.

AMENITIES
For companies that are configuring multiple properties for use with the RezStream Booking Engine,
amenities can be used to describe property features and differentiate properties. All amenities,
regardless of property, are defined using the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative
Interface Account > Account Information > Amenities link. The Property > Property Information >
Amenities link is then used to assign specific amenities to their respective property.
By entering a checkmark next to an amenity in the Property > Property Information > Amenities
link, property-wide amenities are marked as searchable. With searchable property-wide amenities,
Internet guests are able to find a property with specific amenities (i.e. – a Heated Pool).
For companies configuring a single property for use with the RezStream Booking Engine, there
is no action required in the Property > Property Information > Amenities link.
Assign a Property Level Amenity
Use the following steps for assigning property level amenities in the RezStream Booking
Engine.
1.

currently configuring), enter a checkmark next to its description. By entering a
checkmark, the amenity is automatically flagged as “searchable.”
See the Property > Amenity Searchability section for information about making amenities
non-searchable.
If a company listed several properties through the RezStream Booking Engine with different property
level amenities, it would help to flag certain amenities as searchable.

guest and process a valid deposit. In this scenario, availability is updated for the
requested dates and a room IS deducted from inventory. The guest receives a
Reservation Confirmation email.

DESCRIPTION
The online deposit percentage is
calculated based on the reservation
total. Enter the deposit percentage
in the percentage/dollar amount field
in the bottom left-hand corner of the
form.
Because the nightly room charge
could vary based on the days
booked, i.e. – the guest is arriving on
Wednesday and departing on
Sunday with a rate increase over the
weekend, this option can be used to
request a deposit percentage of the
average daily rate. Enter the deposit
percentage in the percentage/dollar
amount field in the bottom left-hand
corner of the form. With this radio
button selected and 50% entered, a
guest with an average daily rate of
$100 would be required to submit a
$50 deposit.
The requested deposit percentage is
calculated based on the first day’s
rate. Enter the deposit percentage in
the percentage/dollar amount field in
the bottom left-hand corner of the
form.
The requested deposit percentage is
calculated based on the last day’s
rate. Enter the deposit percentage in
the percentage/dollar amount field in
the bottom left-hand corner of the
form.
The RezStream Booking Engine
deposit amount will be based on a
fixed dollar amount. Enter the dollar
amount in the percentage/dollar
amount field in the bottom left-hand
corner of the form.
With this option selected, all deposits
based on daily rates will be
calculated at the room rate PLUS
tax.
For single day reservations, payment

Amenities
Amenities help describe units and were previously added to the RezStream Booking
Engine using the Account > Account Information > Amenities link. Now it’s time to assign
amenities to units for the following reasons.
1.
Amenities help describe the unit to assist Internet guests in determining which
available room meets their needs.
2.
Amenities assigned to a unit are initially flagged as “searchable,” which helps
Internet guests find rooms that meet their specific needs. Later on, amenities
that you do NOT want flagged as searchable can be switched off using the steps
described in the section titled, Amenity Searchability.
Use the following steps for assigning amenities to a unit and flagging them as searchable.

From the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface, click the
Property > Units/Rooms > Administration link.
2.
A list of units is displayed. Click the edit icon (

AMENITY SEARCHABILITY
Amenities are assigned to properties using the Property > Property Information > Amenities link and
assigned to Units using the Property > Units/Rooms > Administration link. As soon as an amenity is
assigned to either a property or a unit, it automatically becomes searchable. Searchable amenities allow
online guests to perform complex searches like searching for a property with a heated pool or a room with
an ocean view.
The Property > Amenity Searchability link displays all searchable amenities, by type, property, or unit.
These links can also be used to remove the searchable flag for both property and unit level amenities.
PROPERTY
Click the Property > Amenity Searchability > Property link to view property level amenities that have
been flagged as searchable.
To remove the searchable flag, simply click the checkbox to the left of the amenity description.
For example, if “Full Service Spa” should not be a searchable property amenity, remove the
checkmark.

Administration link. By default, amenities assigned to rooms are flagged as searchable. If you do
NOT want a specific amenity to be searchable, de-select it in the Assign Unit Amenity Searchability
form. For example, if you do NOT want the amenity “Jacuzzi Tub” to be searchable, remove the
checkmark in the Assign Unit Amenity Searchability form.

By de-selecting Jacuzzi tub in the Assign Unit Amenity Searchability form, it no longer displays as a
searchable amenity on the Check Availability form.
In order for an amenity to be removed from the Check Availability form, it must be de-selected
under every room on the Assign Unit Amenity Searchability form.

WEBSITE LINK OPTIONS
In order to make the RezStream Booking Engine “live,” you will need to add a link to your property’s
marketing website that allows Internet guests to access the RezStream Booking Engine. Normally an
Internet guest will visit your property’s marketing website to learn about the property prior to booking a
reservation. On the website, the Internet guest reads about the property, looks at property pictures, and
becomes interested in making a reservation.
In order for the guest to book a reservation, a hyperlink is added to the website that redirects the Internet
guest to the RezStream Booking Engine. This hyperlink can be text or a graphic that reads “Make a
Reservation,” “Book a Reservation,” or anything else that lets the guest know that clicking the link will allow
him to make a reservation. The link can be customized by the property and its web designer or one of the
standard RezStream Booking Engine hyperlinks can be copied and pasted into the property’s marketing
website.
The standard options for linking to the RezStream Booking Engine are depicted in the following table.
HYPERLINK OPTION
DESCRIPTION
Note: The hyperlink on your marketing website appears exactly as it does in this table.

3
Use the following steps to implement one of the standard “Make a Reservation” hyperlinks.
1.
From the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface, select
Property > Website Link Options.
2.
Highlight the HTML code associated with the desired link. After highlighting the desired
code, right-click and select “Copy.”
3.
Right-click again to paste the HTML code into your property’s marketing website.
Note: If you do not maintain your own marketing website, steps 1-3 can be easily completed by the
website design company that maintains your site.

WEBSITE AVAILABILITY CALENDARS
The default starting point for Internet guests to book online reservations via the RezStream Booking Engine
is from the Check Availability form.
If your property wants a guest to begin the online reservation process from the Check
Availability form displayed above, there is no action item to complete in this section.
Other calendar options are available under the Property > Website Availability Calendars link.
The Property > Website Availability Calendars link is divided into three sections:
Design Customizable Calendar

Use this link to create a customizable two-week grid availability
calendar that will be displayed on your marketing website and used
as a starting point for Internet guests to book online reservations.
After customizing your availability calendar, use this link to copy and
paste the required HTML script to your property’s marketing website.
Click this link to view five sample calendars from an actual website.

The Availability Calendar Design form is displayed. There are four radio buttons at the top
of the form that can be used as starting points for designing an availability calendar.
A sample and brief description of these four availability calendar styles is displayed below.
Design My Own
The Design My Own option displays an availability calendar with default settings
but it also allows you to customize the calendar to match the look and feel of your
marketing website. A sample calendar is displayed below along with pointers that
highlight settings that have been changed in our example.
The abbreviation BG in the following images and in the General Grid/Grid Header Design table
stands for background.

The Availability Design Calendar form is displayed below completed in the manner that
produces the sample Availability Calendar displayed above. Circled fields in this table
correspond to the pointers in the image above.
Notes about the General Grid Design fields listed above.
1.
The fields “Image if Available” and “Image if Occupied” refer to images that
display in the calendar if the room is available or occupied on a particular date.
2.
In addition to standard RezStream Booking Engine images, image fields
(Grid BG Image and Header BG Image) can be populated with images that have
been uploaded to the RezStream Booking Engine.
Forest Green – Checkmark if Available
The Forest Green – Checkmark if Available calendar can be used as a starting point for
designing your property’s availability calendar.
In this option, a yellow checkmark is displayed if a unit is available on a particular date. In
our example below, the calendar has been customized to display a bed (
) if the room
is occupied. We have also customized the look of this calendar by adding our property’s
logo.

Guest Tracker Default Calendar
The Guest Tracker Default Calendar is similar to the one used in the Guest Tracker
Desktop software.
The word “book” is displayed in the grid when a unit is available while an ‘X’ denotes an
occupied room.
Professional – Red & Green Squares
The Professional – Red & Green Squares calendar can also be used as a starting point
for designing your availability calendar.

Use the following steps to add an availability calendar format to your marketing website.
1.

calendars display availability for the property as a whole. If one room is available, the
calendar displays the date as available. Unit calendars display availability for specific
individual units.
2.
From the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface, select the
Property > Website Availability Calendars > Retrieve Calendar Links.
3.
The five HTML options displayed in the availability calendar links form correspond directly
to the five calendar examples displayed above. Choose from the three property
availability options or the two unit availability options.
4.
Copy and paste the HTML for the availability calendar link that you have selected to the
appropriate location on your property’s marketing website.
Note: If you do not maintain your own marketing website, the process of copying the above HTML
to your property’s website can be easily completed by the website design company that maintains
your site.

ADMINISTRATIVE RESERVATIONS
Administrative reservations are another method for making reservations and can be made by users with
access to the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface.
For example, assume a property’s front office manager is making configuration changes to the RezStream
Booking Engine from the Online Administrative Interface and simultaneously takes a reservation phone call.
Instead of logging out of the RezStream Booking Engine Online Administrative Interface and logging into
RezStream Professional, the front office manager could simply make the reservation online. This
administrative reservation would then be transferred back into RezStream Professional as part of the online
availability update.
Use the following steps for making an administrative reservation from the RezStream Booking Engine Online
Administrative Interface.
1.
From the RezStream Booking Engine Daily Reservations availability calendar, click on the desired
arrival date.
