You can create the following types of tasks in Guesty:
- A task without automation, either a one-time or a recurring, applied to a property or a specific reservation. You can prepare a description, checklist, or attachment, and schedule its delivery timing. You can assign it to a specific member or a group.
An automated task ("Auto Task"), configured at the listing level, is initiated by an event in the reservation's life cycle. Once the conditions you set are fulfilled, the Auto Task will cause the listing's cleaning status to be updated and/or the dispatch of a message to a guest or team member.
- For example, you can set an Auto Task for cleaning a property one hour after check-out and meet with the guest or property owner for their scheduled arrival time.
To create an Auto Task, start by creating a template, which will provide your team with all the information they need to complete the task. Once created, you can set up the automated scheduling of the tasks. See information relevant to Auto Tasks below.
Create a task template
Before setting up the scheduling of the Auto Tasks, get started by creating a template. This provides your team will all the details needed to perform the task, such as a description, checklist, attachments, and more, as well as the option to specify the task's assignees.
Set up the Auto Tasks' scheduling
Once you've created a template, you can set up its automated scheduling. Auto Tasks can be scheduled based on either guest reservations or personal stays by property owners, as you may want to provide a different experience depending on who is staying.
