The purpose of the “LodgingSharingTag” is to allow crew members from different crews to be lodged together, eliminating one crew member in a double room.
- Use a Complex Data Value (CDV) Crew Level attribute and the dataPoint() formula in the Lodging SharingTag attribute to match crews to share rooms
- If the Crew Level attribute is NOT static, then use the concat() formula in the LodgingSharingTag attribute and a second static attribute value for the values to match
- If no formula is used, attribute values selected for this attribute will be used to determine room compatibility.
For this example using the dataPoint() formula:
This screenshot is from the Attribute Eidt page for the static Crew level attribute we are using “Company”:
- (The Addl Value Data Points for Company is set to Name)
The LodgingSharingTag attribute is set as a Formula-based Attribute. Highlighted on this screenshot shows the dataPoint() formula matching the Company.Name value:
Any crew members from the same Company (Name) will be matched in the system and will be lodged in the same room.
Assigning two crews from different companies
The company name of the first crew is “LR”
The company name of the second crew is “Services”
Assign the crew members to double rooms. The crew from LR has 5 members and the crew from Services has 3 members, 8 members in total:
The screenshot below shows the 8 crew members were assigned to five Double rooms, 3 rooms with two occupants and 2 rooms with 1 occupant:
For the second test, the 2 crews have been modified with the same Company Name, both crews are assigned to company “Services”:
Assign the crew members to double rooms. There are 5 members from the first crew and 3 members from the second crew, 8 members in total:
The screenshot below shows the 8 crew members assigned to 4 Double rooms, 4 rooms with 2 occupants in each:
