Checking-in or out bookingsBack to top
You can find the Check-in button in the left sidebar next to the Booking Invoice.
When clicked, this updates the Customer as Checked-in and adds an invoice note on behalf of the logged-in Staff account.
A checked-in booking can also be checked out by clicking the same button, now labelled Check-out.
When either option has been selected, an icon is added to the booking status label showing a checkmark (checked-in) or forward arrow (checked-out) as part of the status.
This can be seen in several areas throughout the system, including the Booking Calendar and Customer Calendar.
When checking-in or checking-out a booking, these actions are logged in multiple areas in the system.

Resetting the check-in/out featureBack to top
You can reset the check-in status for a booking by clicking on the Reset Check-in button in the left sidebar. This button only appears once a Customer has been checked out.
Once reset any checked-in or checked-out notes from before remain in the notes section of the invoice. The Customer can now be checked in again, should you so wish.
It's not necessary to use the check-in feature. However, it does provide greater insight into your inventory availability, arrivals, and no-shows.
In the next article of the series, we look at printing a Booking Invoice.
