If you are ready for some more advanced options, simply click on Show more options to reveal additional settings.
The page will expand to display Background colour, End Date, Tracking ID, System Language and Helper file settings.
Background ColorBack to top
Just like the Font Color above, you can also select a colour for the background of your booking portal. The default colour is white (#ffffff), but if you are feeling adventurous...
End DateBack to top
The End Date setting allows you to specify the date selected by default as the End Date in the booking page. This is most commonly used in combination with the (start) Date, to create a booking span.
For example, if you choose June 1st as the start Date and June 10th as the End Date, those dates will be selected by default within the calendar. This will create a booking span of 10 days. Customers can select a different start or End date, but the system will continue to enforce that 10-day span.
If you don't specify a start Date, the system will use today as the start Date.
This setting does not configure the last day a Customer is able to book!
In most cases, we do not recommend setting an End Date.
It is best to configure booking date restrictions at the product level:
Tracking IDBack to top
A Tracking ID is simply a code that can be added to the booking portal for future reference. The ID code will show on your invoices so you know where the booking came from specifically. This is great for tracking advertising campaigns and things like that.
LanguageBack to top
If you'd like to display the booking portal in a specific language, simply choose it from the list of available options.
Helper FileBack to top
The booking portal you are about to embed in your webpage is fully responsive. Some older browsers may experience difficulties when it comes to resizing the window. So, you can Download a Helper file from Checkfront to upload to your Web server. The same Web server that hosts your booking page.
The Helper file helps in sizing and performance in older Web browsers!
Finally, specify the Helper file URL, the address of the server, so that Checkfront can find the Helper file.
Almost done! Check out Generating the Web Code the final article in this series.
