Email Opt-in/Opt-out

Posted on Updated on

You have probably seen this before while shopping the Internet – a checkmark next to or below the customer email address asking if you want to receive future offers. This checkmark indicates to the business that the customer is interested in getting notified for future deals and offers.

Now you can do the same with your booking calendar. To enable the opt-in/opt-out checkmark, go to Setup – Business Information – Advanced Options and set email opt-in/opt-out to Yes.

After enabling the opt-in/opt-out, your customers will have the option to opt-out for future mailings. You can view their selection in all reservations and you can generate customer reports that exclude customers that opted-out for future mailings.

You can also use the opt-in/opt-out when using contact management systems for email newsletters and offers. Most contact management systems allow you to upload a CSV file with customer email addresses. You can download this file from the reports section on WebReserv:

To download email contact list:

1. Log on to your WebReserv account
2. Go to Frontdesk – Reports and select customer report
3. Check the exclude opt-out customers checkbox
4. Right-click on CSV and select download to disk
5. Upload the CSV file to your contact management system

Note: Reservation emails (confirmations, cancellations etc.) will always be mailed to the customer, regardless of the opt-in/opt-out checkmark.

Auto confirm and Decline

Posted on Updated on

WebReserv.com will auto confirm all reservations made for your business, this is easy to use and customers love it. However, there might be situations where you want the reservation system to mark a reservation as pending and review it before accepting the reservation. A typical example of this is when you need to verify the reservation with a third party.

You can change the default auto confirm behavior on the Reservation Rules page for each product.

Auto confirm setting

If you set the Auto Confim rule to pending, you will be sent a pending notice whenever a reservation has been made. To confirm or decline it, open the reservation and click the Decline or Confirm button.

Confirm or decline buttons

The customer will automatically receive an email specifying whether the reservation was confirmed or declined.

To modify the email templates for confirmed and declined emails, go to Setup – Emails.
