Understanding the Guest and Staff experience
The Guest can view the product (e.g. Kayak Rental), but any assets configured and attached are manually or automatically assigned behind the scenes by Staff via the Daily Manifest (Booking > Daily Manifest > Assign).
For example, your Staff can determine what size of kayak, kayak paddles and life jackets are needed during check-in.
