View Calendar in Campsite Booking System

View Calendar in Campsite Booking System

Introduction

It is vital that those involved with the day-to-day operation of a campsite understand who has booked, when they’re due, how many people are coming and which precinct they are booking into.

The Queensland Branch utilizes a third part booking system called CheckFront. The following instruction relates to accessing the booking calendar within the CheckFront System


Available Calendar Views

When first logging into the CheckFront System you will be first taken to the Dashboard page. This is a customizable page, so how it will appear may vary slightly from campsite to campsite, however the top menu structure will remain the same.

 

On the left-hand-side of the menu, will be the “Calendar” sub-menu

 

In the current system there are three option, which we will go into more detail in the following sections

Booking Calendar View

The Booking Calendar View, shows the current booking in more of a traditional calendar style. The default is the view by month, which is shown below:


But there is also an option to switch between month, Week, 7 Days and Day view

 

Examples of the different views are shown below:

Week View:

 

7 Day View:

 

Day View:

 

 

You can also navigate different time periods

 

The filter categories can be very useful to display whatever information you are looking for

 

Useful filters include (but not limited to):

  1. Category – to switch between Scouts/Community/Public or other types of booking
  2. Status, to switch between bookings that have a select booking status i.e.
    1. Paid – a booking that has been paid in full and site secured
    2. Deposit – deposit paid, but details need confirmation and payment needs to be finalized
    3. Reserve – No payment made, but site confirmed; details need confirmation and payment needs to be finalized
    4. Follow-up – Used to prompt to confirm some detail of the booking

To use a filter, simply select the drop-down box and click on the check box on the items you want to display


In the calendar view, often there will be more bookings than can be displayed in the available space. That will look like the following:


To bring up the full list of bookings on a particular day simple clock within the calendar square for that date. This will bring up a list, showing the summary booking information for that date.


From the summary view, to bring up an individual booking click on the booking confirmation number.





Inventory Calendar View

The view is typically not used, but will show a list of available inventory items sorted by category.
