What Is the Use of the Grey Rooms in My Calendar?

One of the best features of your RoomRaccoon PMS is that you can keep bookable rooms that you do not want to sell through your RoomRaccoon Booking Engine. How you do that, you can read below:

Add a new grey room

Click on the room key icon on top left corner

Open the rooms tab

Click the green button on top right corner "New Room"

Give your room a recognizable name and use the room numbers to influence the sorting order for your calendar. This can also be notes or comments !!


Room type leave it empty

Your room is already created but you want to make it grey?

Open the room

Room type: leave it empty


Room type: none

In the drop-down menu you are now asked to assign the room to one of your room types. For conference rooms, you should not in any way keep an eye on this, as this does not make your meeting room bothersome to your occupancy rate.

This is a very useful feature for meeting rooms, your bar or any other room that you do not want to book via your RoomRaccoon Booking Engine. As soon as you do not assign a room type, you can still prepare invoices. 

Shown in grey

Rooms that are not assigned to a room type are greyed out in your RoomRaccoon calendar. This makes it easy to see which rooms can be booked and which are not.

Although we often talk about rooms, you can use unassigned 'rooms' for almost everything. It is absolutely a great feature of your RoomRaccoon PMS.

Besides your conference room, why not add your bikes, boats or use this extra field in your diary to have space for notes. Think of adding unassigned 'rooms' to keep track of your agenda about events in your city, to carry out your personnel planning or to add a field for your room service plan that you need in the morning.
