How to "flag" a guest by using the no-show feature for restaurants

There are two different ways to "flag" a guest that did not show up to their booking. Both methods lead to the same result, which will be further discussed below.

  1. Changing the status of a booking to no-show: by changing the status the guest and its user information will be stored in a flagged customer database.
  2. Use the button "Flag bad guest": this will also store the user information in a flagged customer database.

The customer will not be notified that their user information have been stored in a flagged customer database. This is only for the restaurant.

What happens next?

Whenever a guest book a table, resOS will check the guests user information. We look for email adress, phone number user-id or similar. If the guest is stored in the flagged customer database, a warning will be automatically added. You will be able to see the warning in two ways:

  • The warning icon will be visible in the note section of the booking
  • A warning icon will be visible in the booking calendar, once you click on a booking.

This means that by only viewing the booking, the staff will quickly notice if something needs to be double checked. You can always remove the "flag" from the guest.
