About the Developments Page

The top section of this page includes a variety of search filters that you can use to help find a specific development. The lower section of the page lists the developments. The most recently added or modified development records appear first. Up to 12 development records display at a time. If there are more than 12 results, you can use the links at the bottom of the page to view more results.

If you manage multiple properties in a single location, such as units with different rate structures, you can use developments to indicate that all of the units from multiple properties are part of a single development. Using developments provides an additional level of logical organization for your properties and units. Using developments make it easier for prospective guests to browse similar properties on your Kigo web sites.

At the Developments page, you can manage the details for all of the developments available at your company, as well as add new developments. For example, you can use developments to categorize grouped properties, such as condominiums, golf course developments, or several houses in the same neighborhood.
