Advanced Analytics: Business on the Books Dashboard

Have more questions? Submit a request

Advanced Analytics is a premium feature. Contact us to discuss activating it.

You can use the "Business on the Books" dashboard in Advanced Analytics to analyze all your business performance metrics in one place. This dashboard provides easy access to both daily and year-over-year revenue comparisons, and displays the percentage of reservations created in the month revenue was received vs. reservations that were created in previous months. Use this dashboard to make data-driven decisions and predict upcoming revenue and occupancy figures. An explanation of each section in the dashboard can be found below.

Important:

Advanced Analytics does not recognize occupancy for reservations that have a check-in date from before the listing was activated.

Note:

If you are a new user to Guesty, the dashboard will only reflect data from the time that you joined Guesty. Revenue, Reservations, and other dashboards will show historical data. 

Pace Report

Compare this year's and last year's performance for the following parameters; revenue, number of booked days, occupancy, and average nightly rate (ANR). Click each item on the bar chart to take a closer look at a particular month. To return to the yearly view, hover over one of the bar chart's titles, such as Revenue Current and Last Year, and click.
Below the chart, you can also view this data as a list, broken down into listings. Click Selected Period or Same Period Past Year to easily switch between views and compare them. You can use the "Period" filter in the filter panel on the right-hand side to choose which period the data is displayed for.
The "Unit Type" column displays whether the listing is a single-unit or a multi-unit. With multi-unit listings, you can take a deeper look at each sub-unit by right-clicking the listing's nickname and selecting listing_nickname from the drop-down. To return to the main list, click.

Tip:

Use the Unit Type filter in the filter panel on the right-hand side to choose whether the dashboard provides data for single-units, multi-units, or both.
