Update #14: Cleaning Schedules

We’ve got some interesting management updates for you in this latest patch! We’re introducing the new and improved Cleaning Management system that’s sure to improve your hotel operations. Plus, we talk about some upcoming maintenance changes that will keep your establishment in tip-top shape. Buckle up, because these enhancements are set to revolutionize the way you manage your hotel. Let’s dive in!

Cleaning Management:

We’re proud to announce the release of our revamped Cleaning Management system! This update gives you the power to precisely control when and where your housekeeping staff clean, providing a level of detail that ensures every corner of your hotel sparkles.

Each room now features a customizable cleaning schedule, as shown in the linked screenshots above and below. This schedule allows you to set specific times of the day for cleaning orders, with more frequent cleanings for high-traffic areas and facilities. No more cleaners magically knowing where the dirt is – they need to be either manually called by you or directed by the room’s cleaning schedule.

You are also able to set a priority for each room and can set which housekeeping facility (and by proxy which housekeepers) will be responsible for this room. This allows you to have specific housekeeping facilities/staff that can be responsible for certain areas of your hotel.
Bedrooms don’t work exactly the same way. A cleaning order is only created once the guest checkouts (guests don’t mind if their room is dirty if they created it)

To help you stay on top of your cleaning game, we’ve introduced a new cleaning info view (shown below). This handy tool visualizes the state of each room, indicating whether it has been cleaned, is waiting to be cleaned, or has been neglected for over a day. With this new system, you’ll have unparalleled control over your hotel’s cleanliness, preparing you for exciting future updates and features.

Mac / Linux Users:

Unfortunately due to an external service deprecating a feature we were unable to get Mac and Linux built and published with this update. We are working on it and hope to have both OS published with this version very soon.

Upcoming Updates:

While we’ve been fine-tuning the cleaning system, we’re also hard at work on some crucial maintenance changes, which we expect to release very soon. Maintenance issues will no longer be automatically reported; instead, they’ll need to be noticed by staff members in the room. This makes regular room visits by cleaners and other staff more important than ever.

To ensure smooth operations, we’ve made it easier for you to manually report issues and set their priority. This added layer of strategy means you’ll need to keep a keen eye on your hotel’s condition. Just like with the cleaning updates, these maintenance changes pave the way for more complex management elements, including future disaster scenarios.

Speaking of disasters, get pumped for some exciting (and potentially fiery) challenges coming your way! In our upcoming Checking In: Reports, we’ll delve deeper into these new disaster features that are in the works and how they’ll impact your hotel management strategy. Stay tuned, magnates – the best is yet to come!

So, gear up for these fantastic new systems and prepare to take your hotel management skills to the next level. Your luxurious establishment is about to become more efficient and dazzling than ever!

Thanks for your support and happy building!
