Owner/Housekeeping Notifications

If you are an agency, you are likely to have owners and/or housekeepers of the properties you may wish to notify when you’ve received or cancelled a booking. This article explains at which point the owner notification is sent;

Telephone Bookings: you are asked at the end of the booking process with a tick box.
Online Bookings: the owner and housekeeping notifications are never automatically sent. You will check the booking is OK, proceed to the bookings list, click on the booking and click the notify owner or housekeeping button.

Notifying the Owner or Housekeeper after an online booking is made

Go to the booking in the bookings page and search for your booking.  If you have not sent an owner or housekeeper notification previously, you will notice the ‘notify owner’ or ‘notify housekeeper’ button will appear between the search box and the booking list when you click once on a booking.

 

When you cancel a booking, you can then give the option to send the Booking Cancelled notification to the owner or the housekeeper.
