Congratulations! You have created your questions successfully in ResBook! Now it is time to assign it to different forms.


Step 5: Select one of the below forms and assign the fields that you want your guest, staff, and agents to fill out during the booking process.


Outlined below is how to assign the additional fields to different forms:

Manual Form: Select [Manual Form]. Mark any of the additional fields as required and they will appear in the Booking Form in [Calendar].

 
 
Agent Form: Select [Manual Form]. Mark any of the additional fields as visible and they will appear in the [Manual Entry Booking Form].
 
Guest Form: Select [Manual Form]. Mark any of the additional fields as visible and they will appear in the [Multi page Booking Form].


When ticking the boxes, the following applies:

  • 'Visible' shows the field on the online booking form.
  • 'Required' creates an asterisk(*) beside the field where the guest is required to enter an answer. They will be unable to proceed with the booking unless doing so. 

Tip: When it comes to requesting information from guests booking online, the golden rule is "Less is more". Every extra field a guest is asked to complete increases the chance that they may abandon the page because they do not understand a question, or simply prefer not to answer it.


Remember, only ask for essential information. After securing their booking, you can always request additional information.
