How do I set up a Section?

The following article explains how to set up Sections in the Housekeeping Module.

Viewing Room Sections

When Sections have been set up, they can be viewed on the Estimates page of the Housekeeping Module, and will appear along the top.

By clicking on a Section, it will show what Room Types make up that section.

What if there are no Sections?

If Sections are not set up, they will simply not display.
