You can decide to have the Smart View information displayed in a table view, instead of a graph, for your own convenience.
The table view allows a clear price analysis and comparison between data sets. All the data, including demand and occupancy, is clearly laid out while changes in room prices are color marked to highlight changes to the current date, thereby allowing an easy navigation.
Accessing the table view
To switch to a table view go to Smart View and click on the table icon on top of the page.
How is data displayed in the Table View?
Date and Favorites are the first two columns displayed on the table. You can click on the star under favorites to show which feeds you have saved for a specific day.
Your destination, your Own Hotel and your competitors are shown on top of the table. One or more columns are grouped under each of these categories depending on whether you are viewing data for a single day or are including snapshot data.
If you are viewing data for a single day:
The city demand is displayed under your destination; your own occupancy and room price are listed under Own hotel; while under each competitor you will see their room price. Competitors’ room prices are marked in red if they are cheaper than your rates and green if more expensive.
If you have added snapshot data:
There will be additional columns marking any change in demand, own occupancy, own room prices or competitors’ room prices. Positive changes are marked in green and negative ones in red.*
*Note: the green/red marking has changed to indicate changes to the current date rather than differences between competitors.
Meal plans - Meal plans in the table view are displayed with an icon next to the room price:
Wait, but how do I even add snapshot data?
You can analyze data day by day for the last 31 days relative to the current date. To compare data from one of the past 31 days use the slider on top of the page and select the day of interest.
You can sort data in the table by any of the column values: Date, Favorites, Demand, Change in Demand, Occupancy, Change in Occupancy, Room Price, Change in Room Price. To do so, click on the arrow next to the value you wish to sort by.
To refresh the data in the whole Smart View click on the refresh button on top of the page.
To refresh data for a single day, hover on the date to view the refresh button on the left side and then click it.
To access the Price Development graph double click on any row to see the graph for that day. Alternatively hover over the date and click on the three dots that will appear on the left of the table.
Using the filter
For the user’s convenience, the filter won’t change when switching between graph and table views. Any doubts about filters? Read more about them here.
To see quickly the difference between your room rate and your competitor set’s median, there is also the option of switching to the median view via the tabs on the right side of the page.
