Setup in CheckfrontBack to top
Once myallocator has been configured within myallocator, it's time to set up the Integration in your Checkfront Booking Manager.
To get started, go to Integrations (Manage > Integrations) in your Checkfront dashboard. Locate the tile labeled MyAllocator (Integrations > Channels), hover your mouse over, and click on the tile to access setup.
Enter your MyAllocator ID and MyAllocator Password in the pop-up window that should now be displayed.
Click Activate when ready to proceed.
You'll now be returned to the Integrations tile view. We're not quite finished yet, so go ahead and click on the myallocator tile one more time.
You should see an options field with nothing currently selected. Open up the drop-down menu and select the option Lock items in booking notices from external channels.
Click on Update to save this setting.
The option Lock items in booking notices from external channels is a vital step and must not be missed.
This option tells the system that when a booking is received from an outside source, the inventory should be locked off so it can't be booked by anybody else.
If you don't select this option, then you may find yourself having to deal with overbooking situations.
Have you added a new room to your myallocator account, but the room is not showing for mapping in Checkfront? Click the Update button within the Add-on Setup modal (Manage > Integrations > MyAllocator) to refresh your property list.
Do you have multiple Checkfront accounts that you want to connect to different properties within the same myallocator account? If you do, then note that this is a scenario we support!
