  3. So What About The Not-so Orange Oranges?

More details below!

Notes now expire on check-out

Most hotels use the ‘Notes’ extensively to communicate various extra instructions or requirements to Room Attendants & Supervisors.  These could be either valid for just one day or for the entire duration of the stay. 

Different clients use the 'Notes' feature differently.  Some want notes to show to the RA when the room is cleaned after the guest checked out, and others do not.  Opti can now do both!

In your current system, the notes will show after check-out. With this update notes will now NOT show after a guest checks out.  If you prefer to show the notes after check out, please let your success coach know and we will update this for you.

  

Arrivals Show in Uncovered Rooms

By popular request from many of our clients like you: The list of uncovered rooms at the bottom of the Hub now shows a ‘Y’ next to each departure clean that has a new guest arriving. This makes it easy to identify priority rooms, especially when you have a quiet day and plan on rolling rooms!

What do you have to do now?

It is important though that you press the Control+Shift+R keys, all at the same time when you are first in the Hub to activate the update.

We’ll take care of updating the Hub for you, however, we also do recommend that you always update the mobile devices to the latest versions from the AppStore® and Google Play®. 

So What About The Not-so Orange Oranges?

The original oranges from Southeast Asia were a tangerine-pomelo hybrid, and they were actually green. In fact, oranges in warmer regions like Vietnam and Thailand still stay green through maturity. 

What if I have Questions about all of this?
