We are so happy that you want to try out resOS’ booking system for your restaurant! We have prepared a guide for you on how to set up your restaurant on resOS in the simplest way. By following these steps, we assure you of a smooth and efficient onboarding process.
How to integrate resOS’ booking system:
Step 1: Create a profile
Your first step is to click on the button saying “Get started for free” on the front page. You are now redirected to a new page, where you will be asked to enter the name of your restaurant and in which country it is located.
Step 2: Choose your booking settings
Choose how you want to receive bookings. You can choose manual or automatic handling of bookings and tables. Choose also if you want feedback from the guests after their visit.
You will of course be able to adjust all of the chosen settings at any point in time. Once in the system, you will also be able to set up more specific criteria. Such as if you want to receive bookings via E-mail, SMS, and/or phone call, and the minimum and maximum time in advance a guest can make a booking.
Step 3: Explore your dashboard
Now you’re finally in the system! Click on the yellow three-line icon in the upper left corner. You will now see a side menu with various alternatives. A good way to start is to click on “Dashboard”, as this will provide an overview of your settings and profile so far.
Step 4: Complete your setup
Under the title “Complete setup”, you will see a checklist of things you should go through. By clicking at each of the recommendations in the list, you will be redirected to the page where you edit it. You can also see these settings in the side menu.
Step 5: Set up tables
This is an essential step as guests otherwise will not be able to make reservations. Here we allow you to be in full control over what areas and tables you want to make bookable for guests, how many guests can be seated at each table, and how different tables can be combined.
Step 6: Start receiving bookings
When you’re done with the set up of your restaurant, you’re ready to receive bookings! Don’t forget to add a booking widget to your website, as well as a booking link to your Facebook and Google page.
Step 7: Try out the system
We really hope that you have followed so far. However, what’s a better way of understanding the system than trying it out yourselves? Make test bookings to your own restaurant in order for you to experience the system from a customer point of view. This way you will gain more insights about the system and which features and settings you are most comfortable with.
Step 8: Choose your monthly plan
Your free subscription allows you to receive 25 bookings per month. Once you have set up the system and informed your guests on how to book a table via resOS, you simply click on “Select plan” in the Dashboard. Here you are given three other alternatives for plans in order for you to find the one that suits you better.
