Updating & Syncing DataBack to top
Data collected during booking creation is synced with the contact/lead in Zoho.
Checkfront's integration with Zoho makes updating that information a seamless process. If you change the booking in Checkfront, then the data is also immediately updated in Zoho CRM.
|Please note this is a one-way sync. Editing the data in Zoho does not update Checkfront.|
Let's look at a booking and see how the information you enter in Checkfront translates to the contact/lead in Zoho.
Above is the information provided to Checkfront during the booking process.
As you can see, the Customer has provided most of the details asked for but has yet to specify their City in the address field provided.
Above is what you see in your Zoho account.
Not to worry, though. All you need to do is pull up the invoice in Checkfront and edit the address to include the City.
After clicking Update, the invoice reflects the change, and the record in Zoho is updated immediately to include the city, too!
We may add further integrations with Zoho in the future.
When syncing a custom booking form field to Zoho, you are connected using the field ID; however, this field ID is capitalized, and underscores are replaced with whitespaces when sent (test_id => Test Id).
To ensure the fields map correctly, please ensure your equivalent field in Zoho has the same API name, including capitalization. You can check the API name in Zoho under Settings > APIs > API Names.
Keep in mind: editing these names may cause other integrations to not sync correctly, as they may have been mapping to the original title. In that case, consider splitting the field in Zoho, or renaming the field in your other extension, if possible.
Zoho limits the number of API requests you can make on a given day based on your plan. A new booking from Checkfront can use up to three API calls.
Please ensure the Zoho plan you are subscribed to is in-line with the number of bookings you expect daily
