Having some issues (mainly time related) while doing the housekeeping planning I shared an idea with
I would like for you all to give your insight about it if you have the time so here it is paste from the conversation itself :
The main concern for now is towards the housekeeping service and planning organization
I've seen already a lot of suggestions on the Mews Idea Forum and I think they really should be considered by the developping team
Indeed, even if Mews is a fantastic tool, it is still build as if the proprety using it held a different department for each task requested day by day. What I mean is for a smaller structure like the one I'm working at, every operation or almost are processed by the reception/frontdesk staff. We cannot afford to lose time and that is not the cas when we are trying to assign the rooms to our housekeepers.
I think there should be an extra page which resume the situation of the day on which we could more easily work in a step by step process. It would be more intuitive and user friendly.
I know I'm not clear but let me explain the idea. It could work as the manual reservation encoding process with one step following the other:
=> Step 1: Mews generates the room status (by clicking a button maybe) with only the used and/or dirty rooms but separating the stayover from the expected checkouts and the rooms that need a change of linnen (those on 3/5 nights, 4/6, 5/7,etc..) and let's call the "extensive"
=> Step 2 : you select the houseekeepers of the day in the list of your staff (maybe the idea to assign a prefered floor or type of room to one given housekeeper should also be added (if it does not already exist))
=> Step 3: autogenerate a split of rooms for each housekeepers and give the possibility to adjust it manually (still on the same screen) with a click and drop
=> Step 4: when satisfied of the cleaning planning, you save it and the day is set
It is more or less how it works on Amadeus IDPMS (from which we have migrated from) and it was really convenient
Again, don't know if it is at all possible, but it would be a real upgrade
Let me know what you think about it, thanks for you time fellow Mewsers
