Front Desk Preview
Front Desk's main page contains all the information you need for upcoming bookings.
Making a Booking
When you click on any of the Experiences listed on the left, you are automatically taken to the next screen where you can create a booking. You can also create a new booking from the Bookings tab by clicking on the + symbol on the top right side of the page.
All screens within the Front Desk app are dynamic, meaning that if you update the number of guests on a booking, the total cost will be updated accordingly.
Once you have finished filling in all the relevant information, you can quickly review it before clicking on Total which will you take you to the checkout page.
On the next page, you are given the option of selecting your guest's payment method and proceeding with the completion of their booking.
Just as with Online bookings, you will still be able to use Promo Codes (if your guests have one) or edit the booking's Private Notes (visible on the booking and experience manifest internally). Lastly, on this page, you also have the option of associating the booking to an Affiliate when needed.
If you enter a contact email address for your guest, AnyRoad will send them a confirmation and review email for their booking.
Here is a preview of how a confirmed booking looks like in Front Desk.
Just as via the AnyRoad Dashboard, the Front Desk app also gives you access to your Messages, Bookings, Calendar, and more.
Important Note: bookings for experiences with deposits are not currently supported in the AnyRoad Front Desk. When an experience is configured to require a deposit, it will be automatically hidden on your Front Desk.

Check-ins via QR code
If you would like to check in your guests via the QR code sent to them on their confirmation email, you simply need to click on the QR symbol on the top right corner. You will then be asked to scan the QR code and the guests will automatically check-in for their booking without you having to manually check them in by locating their booking on your Dashboard.
