Adding Units

One of the first things you will do when setting up a new property is add your property's units, which are your RV Sites, Tent sites, cabins, etc. Start by clicking Settings Units and click New Unit. You will enter the unit's name, and click Save

Cloning Units

That's all! You have set up a unit. Chances are, you have many more units that are very similar if not identical to this one. If so, you can simply clone a unit as many times as you need to create identical or similar units. To start, click the Options dropdown on the top right, and click Clone Unit.

Select the # of times you want to clone the unit, and click OK. This will duplicate the unit you just set up and all it's settings to make more identical unit. You can then return to the list of units, and click each unit to update it's name and/or unit #.

After cloning units, you will have multiple units with the same number and similar names (Unit Name (Copy 1), Unit Name (Copy 2), etc). Use the arrange units feature to quickly update the names and numbers of your units as well as set the display order.

Importing/Exporting unit settings

If you make a change on one unit that you want to make to other units, you can use the import/export feature. Click the Options dropdown and select Import/Export Unit Info.

CS-Firefly-KB-Unit-ExportSettings can be import from or exported to another unit. Huge time saver!

First, select if you want to import settings from another unit, or export settings from the current unit to another unit (1). Select which units to import from or export to (2), and choose which settings to copy (3). Click Continue to apply those changes. This is incredibly useful if you need to update your photos or rates for all units. Just update one unit, and then export those settings to all applicable units.
