What You Can Do When You Forgot to Check-In the Guest after the Night Audit?

Hello Softinn PMS users!

After the automatic night audit process only then your hotel front desk officer noticed that he forgot to “Check-In” a guest in PMS. The Reservation status of that booking, therefore, would show as “No Show” instead of “Checked-In”.

This problem could be rectified by “Reinstating” the reservation status to its immediate preceding status.

Check out this video to find out what you can do when your hotel front desk officer forgot to “Check-In” a guest after the night audit process :
