Accessing the booking importBack to top
The Booking Import tool is designed to import booking details from external sources.
Using a spreadsheet, it's possible to import data for hundreds of bookings, create past and present records for customers, and bring your Checkfront booking system fully up-to-date.
To import your bookings, navigate to the Booking Index (Reports > Booking Index) in your Checkfront dashboard. From there, click on the Import button.
