About the Development Page

From here, you can create a new development or make changes to an existing development.

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.
