General recommendations for Front Desk teams.
Use Individual Logins
Having a different login for each team member helps keep track of things. Quickly identify who is in charge of a booking, or who has made changes.
Make Use of Tasks
Manage individual work items as separate tasks. Know who is responsible, when it is due, and if the task has been completed.
A series of tasks on a booking conveys a clear timeline of information.
Using tasks helps keep the Booking Notes concise and free of information that is no longer needed for current or upcoming operations.
Maintain Booking Notes
Add notes to keep track of important information. Also recognise it’s difficult to find relevant information within a very long note.
Keep information that is still relevant near the top of the booking note. Remove sections that are no longer needed.
The Operations Report shows notes on accommodation bookings. Keep key notes on the accommodation booking as opposed to on packaged item bookings.
