OverviewBack to top
The Booking Calendar provides a traditional, calendar view of your bookings including your choice of Month, Week, or Day layouts. With several format and filter options to suit your needs, the Booking Calendar can be optimized to provide an excellent, visual overview of your bookings. You can then find and absorb information faster, which will expedite the task of managing your bookings!
Need to see more booking information? Simply click on the booking within the calendar to reveal booking insights in the new side-panel! Learn more here.
We will also cover how to Add your bookings to an External Calendar, via our Checkfront iCal Feed. Click here to learn more.
Follow the series sequentially or jump to an article using the in-article or side menu links. Let's start with your layout options.
Gift Certificate purchases only display within the Booking Calendar if on the same invoice as one or more date-based items. In that case, a record for the Gift Certificate displays separately on the purchase date as an all day booking and within the Bookings tab of the side-panel. This provides you with full transparency into all items on the invoice.
If the Gift Certificate was purchase independently, then it will not appear on the Booking Calendar.
