Including Checkfront items
Once you input your details into the setup fields and activated the integration, it's configured and ready to use.
The next step is to include any Checkfront items you wish to advertise on Tripadvisor.
To do this, open the item in your Checkfront Booking Manager from the Inventory area (Inventory > Items) and select the Attributes tab.
At the bottom of this tab, you see a section labelled Tripadvisor Connect.
If you wish to sync the item, select yes from the dropdown menu Include in Tripadvisor. By default, this is set to no.
Next, select the room type from the dropdown menu labelled Room Code. Choose the Tripadvisor option that most closely resembles the type of room you offer.
When ready, save your item, and the sync occurs automatically.
And that's it! You are now set up with Tripadvisor Connect and can hopefully watch your booking rate increase.
For your items to be picked up by Tripadvisor Connect, your business address listed in your Checkfront Booking Manager must match exactly the address provided in your Tripadvisor Connect account.
