Frequently Asked QuestionsBack to top
Do I have to map one myallocator room type to one Checkfront item, or can I connect a room type with multiple quantities to an item with multiple quantities?
Yes, we support mapping room types with multiple quantities to items with matching quantities in Checkfront.
No need to create a room type or item for each room unless each is unique and this mapping suits your business model!
