1. Connecting Chekin to Guesty
- Register for a new Chekin account.
- Follow the instructions here to connect Chekin to Guesty.
2. Sending Registration Links to Guests
Since the custom field might be completed by Chekin a few minutes after the reservation is confirmed, avoid timing the Automated Messages to be sent by reservation confirmation.
In this case, Guesty and Chekin suggest you do 1 of these 2 options:
Use a follow-up Auto message: "1 hr after reservation confirmation". The first message set at reservation confirmation should be amended to say: "We will send you a link soon";
You can set up a more elaborate flow for last-minute reservations:
Use the two messages approach( like in #1)
For reservations made in advance - you can always send the confirmation email 1 hour after check-in, without the second message.
Chekin automatically sends a registration link to guests. Sign in to Chekin to deactivate this option, as the link should only be sent via Guesty.
3. Seeing if Guests have Completed Chekin Registration
Chekin creates a custom field named “Chekinallguestsregistered” which will inform you in real time when all guests of the same reservation have completed the online registration. You may use the information in this field to set up an Auto Message to be sent.
You will find the guests' data (Name, last name, sex, birth date) as a note in the Inbox thread of each relevant booking.
