The Custom Groups feature gives you the option of filtering data based on your own listings' characteristics and preferences
The Custom Groups feature empowers you to create unique sets of listings that you find most relevant to compare your revenue management strategy against. This way, you can separate out specific listings from Property Managers or Hosts that contain a certain amenity, location, price trend, etc. and organize them into one categorical group.
This group can then be applied as a filter across the entire Dashboard, where you can measure how your listings compare against this particular market subset. Combine several different listing characteristics to produce a defined selection of groups that represent your true competition. The possibilities are endless!
How to create Custom Groups?
1. Simply click on Custom Groups under the top-right drop-down menu, and start focusing on the listings you are the most interested in. Copy and Paste the urls of the listings you wish to add (one per line or comma separated), give the group an alphanumeric name, and hit Create Group!
2. Once your group is defined, simply come back on any page of your Transparent Dashboard and use the "Listings Group" filter on the left-hand side panel.
Do you have multiple accounts? Groups are shared between users under the same company! Simply create your groups and your colleagues will also have access to them.
Did you forget to add some listings to your group? Try to create a group with those listings with the same name as the existing one and we will merge them for you!
Do you want to export your groups again? Go to the Listing Level View under the Rate & Demand tab to download the available data for your groups.
Are there any listings you couldn't add? Remember that the listings you can add to the Custom Groups are the professionally managed listings (up to 1,000 at a time, and then you can merge them!) If you would like to add listings that are not managed by a Property Manager please email the list of URLs to firstname.lastname@example.org
