I have many properties that due to various reasons have unique seasons. 

Mostly because owners block dates that do not adhere to any sort of schedule

As a result I end up with all sorts of exceptions to seasons and with 37 properties

it becomes quite a task keeping up with them.

I have come to the conclusion that I almost need a set of seasons for every property.

It would be great if I could just copy the seasons from property to property.

For example

Unit 304 has the following.  Unit 305 is probably very similar with a couple of tweaks.

If I could just BATCH COPY 304 seasons to 305 that would be a huge timesaver.

Generally seasons are meant to apply across many different properties, while spot rates are designed to be finely tuned for specific properties at exact times.

Can I ask you to elaborate exactly what adjustments you're making that can't be done via spot rates. I see you mentioned owner block dates is it related to those?

I use PRICELABS so I am exclusively using spot rates.

I am only using SEASONS to

    *enforce minimum day restrictions, 

    *define seasons to correspond with the PL spot rates

 PL on it's own will not enforce SAT to SAT for example, it requires using OR seasons.

So I have 37 properties and while a generic season, JUN-JUL-AUG could be

used to enforce Sat to Sat with 7 night stay for a group of assigned properties

there are always exceptions.

These exceptions are because I set a season for SAT to SAT and I have 20 properties assigned to it.

Then I have many owners who want to block things that do not adhere to Sat to Sat so I created

"exception" seasons.  

So it is very time consuming and if I had the ability to simply copy seasons such as

wp1-jun-jul-aug-sat-7-7 (water pointe 1 jun jul aug sat to sat 7 days a week) to

wp1-unit-100-jun-jul-aug-sat-7-7 it would be a great help

It is also important to understand I am only using seasons as a structure...I do not have prices associated with the seasons.

I am not looking to copy rates, just the season shell.

Thank you for the additional information!

I wanted to reach out and add a little more to this discussion, I would also recommend reaching out to PriceLabs and showing your interest for them to integrate with our newer Spot Rates API that supports check in/out restrictions. We've already passed that information a long to them, but it appears that would allow spot rates/PriceLabs to manage this particular situation for you.
