How to choose your preferred way of receiving booking notifications

Keep working the way which works best for you, choose your preferred way of receiving booking notifications.

The beauty of resOS booking system is that you can choose to get notifications about new bookings exactly the way that suits you. In this guide, we show you how to choose your preferred way of receiving booking notifications. Choose between email, phone or SMS.

Choose between booking notification by email, SMS or phone

1.Go to your dashboard on resOS

When you are on the dashboard, go to the top left corner and press Settings and choose Booking.

2. Choose one or as many booking notification options as you’d like

Scroll down to Notifications. Here, you can choose as many notification options as you like.

This is where resOS stands out from its competitors. We do not want to change what already works for you. 

Email

If you like to get notified about new bookings by email, choose this option. This is a good idea if you have a tablet or computer in your restaurant, or if you have a phone where you check your emails. 

SMS

Choose to get notifications by SMS, if you like to have the bookings right on the phone in the restaurant. You will get all the information about the booking on the phone.

Automatic phone call

If you prefer to receive bookings by phone, then choose our automatic phone call. You will get all the information about the booking through the phone and can decline or accept directly on the phone. This is a great solution if you don’t have a computer or tablet in the restaurant. N.B. This option is available only if you select to "manually accept or decline each booking"

We make it possible for you to offer online booking for your guests, while you still receive bookings the way you like. Despite the options above, you can always see you bookings on the resOS profile as well.

3. Add a picture to your booking page

Add a great booking page image. The picture appears on your booking page when a guest presses Book a table.

4. Add a comment to guests about booking

Are you fully booked in Christmas or don’t take reservations for breakfast? Any comment about the booking that future guests should be aware of can be added.

Now that we have shown you how to choose your preferred way of receiving booking notifications, read our guide about How to add the booking system on Facebook, so you can receive more bookings through us :-)
