The reservation chart is designed to give you a visual of your reservations over a monthly period. The Reservation chart has many functions as shown below;  
Charge periods are displayed on the chart by colour changes to the days along the top of the chart, this changes from yellow to green when there is a period change. If you place your mouse over the colour the name of the charge period will be displayed in the bottom left corner of the chart.  
Your areas may be previewed by alphabetical order or category order as shown below. The yellow boxes represent the first area within a new category. If you place your mouse over any room the category name will be displayed in the bottom left corner of the chart.  
The date shown in the top left corner of the screen displays the first date shown on the chart, this may be changed using the drop down arrow and selecting a new date from the calendar.
