Applicable ItemsBack to top
If the document should be applied to a specific item(s) only, click on the drop-down arrow next to the category and then select the appropriate item(s) by checking its box.
When a category contains some items that are applicable to the waiver and some that are not, the category will be labelled with a minus sign, rather than a check mark.
If the template is not attached to any items, it will not be included as part of the booking flow. Be sure to make the assignment, otherwise, your customers will not be able to sign the waiver during the booking process.
SummaryBack to top
The summary section allows you to enter a brief description of the document and convey its purpose to the customer.
This description will be visible to the customer on the live signing screen (see below):
And, the Public Document Directory, which we'll look at later:
Due DateBack to top
The waiver doesn't need to be signed by the customer at the time of booking, but if you like, you can put a due date on it in the configuration section.
If a due date is selected, the customer will be taken directly to their receipt after completing the booking. This receipt contains a link to the document that is waiting to be signed.
The customer can click on this link to be taken to the document for signing at any time.
Reminder ScheduleBack to top
You can also schedule a reminder email to be sent to the customer x number of days before the due date.
Select a number of days from the drop-down menu. You are able to choose more than one option. The reminder email will be sent out on each option chosen, in this case, 1 and 2 days before the due date. We will look at email notifications a bit later on.
Document AttachmentBack to top
This option allows you to create a waiver that can be used for multiple bookings. If your business offers memberships to your guests, for example, you can use this option to create a waiver that only needs to be signed once by the user, but can then be applied to multiple bookings in the future. If you are generating a one-time use waiver, simply select the Single Booking option, selected by default. If however, you would like the waiver to be signed once, but also applied to future bookings, go ahead and select the Multiple Bookings option instead.
Additional time-based options will appear, enabling you to select how long the waiver can be reused for. You can select a number of days or a specific date, maybe the end of your season or the calendar year. Once the multiple-use waiver is ready and has been signed by the customer, you will find it by pulling up the customer invoice and clicking on the Documents tab.
Since this waiver is configured as reusable and we would like to be able to use it again for this particular customer, click on the drop-down labelled View and select Allow Reuse. The status of the waiver will now be updated with a pin icon to show that it is reusable.
So, the next time this customer arrives at your business and books a tour, you will be able to attribute the document which they have already signed. To do that, create their booking and pull up the invoice. Click on Attribute Documents in the left sidebar of the Documents tab. From the pop-up window, select the document you wish to use by checking the box next to it. You should see the customer's name but can perform a search if need be.
And that's it! The signed waiver is now attached to the booking.
