Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

Only one type of accommodation should be recorded for each night. If a client is marked down as staying in two different types of accommodation for the same date, it will be recorded as an error.

If a client crosses the whole month check box, the first of the month should be recorded as the start date, and the last valid calendar day for that month should be recorded as the end date.
