    If you get a space category mapping error, the category won't be unmapped.

Once resolved, click on the space category name and tick Synchronized.

  • Introducing online check-out! Cut the tedious administrative work for both your guests and staff.

    How a guest leaves your property is a choice that should be left up to them—that’s why we’re so excited to introduce online check-out.

    We tested this feature with a variety of properties (both big and small), and we've seen the benefits in real life: Guests are eager to take control of their departure, and receptions are raving about shorter lines.

    Set up online check-out and get on with the most important job of all—creating exceptional experiences for your guests!

    Note: This is a public beta and not available in all regions just yet—stay tuned, France, Italy, Spain, & Portugal! Keep an eye on our release notes so you know when it’s available for everyone.

  • Join the public beta for daily product consumption!

    You can now create products that are charged and posted per-night—for example, you can create a breakfast product that is consumed daily (instead of at the end of the stay). Just choose Daily in the Posting field when you create a new product.

    Note: This is a public beta, so reach out to our support team if you have any feedback! Your current products won’t be consumed per-night until we’ve updated them on our side—your account manager will be in touch with more details in the coming weeks.
