One of the biggest and most popular features in the Checkfront Mobile Booking App is the ability to create new bookings while on the go.
You can see a plus sign icon at the bottom of the app home screen in a blue circle.
Tapping on this opens the Create Booking screen above to the right.
Another screen opens up, allowing you to select an item. Choose the category first.
This brings you to the details screen. From here, you may select the start and end date for the booking by tapping on the dates at the top of the screen.
This opens a calendar from which you may make your selections.
Below this, available items for the date range selected are displayed. Again, just tap on the item you wish to book.
You can change the dates on the following screen and/or select a time slot if required. You can select the number of participants based on the parameters attached to the item and add a promo code if applicable.
Tap the Add To Booking button to continue.
The next screen allows you to choose any add-ons for your booking item, if applicable. Tap Add to include an item in the reservation.
If you change your mind, tap the same button again to remove it. Below is a button to add any additional items to the booking.
Immediately below is a summary of the booking totals, followed by the booking form.
After entering the booking details, the Create button, top left, becomes active. When you're ready to complete the booking, tap this.
You can now see the completed booking and proceed with any payments you wish. Any notifications configured in the desktop Booking Manager are automatically sent to the relevant recipients.
