Hi experts,

Currently I'm building a self-checkin app running on tablet equipped at front desk.
With the app, guest can go thru check-in process by themselves, anytime when they arrive at our accommodation.

My questions are;
1. Is it possible to notify Beds24 about guests' arrival using API?
2. If yes, which API & data column should I tweak?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mayumi,

You can use the API to add a Booking Info Code CHECKIN to the booking.

See setBooking JSON in https://api.beds24.com/index.html

Hello lesleywoermeijer,

Thanks for your comment! Happy to know it's achievable with JSON.
To start with, I'd like to know the whole data structure of posting JSON, the all property names and possible values,
as I can't find anything on https://api.beds24.com/json/setBooking

Any useful document?

Regards,
Mayumi

Hello Mayumi,

When you use the get version of the API - i.e. getBookings then you will see the column names and format of the data, this should be used to format the data for your setBookings posting.
