  1. Enter the guests for your reservation. You may add guests by name, and they will receive an e-mail notification of the reservation.

 

Note: You may either enter specific names, or you can search by entering the first few letters of a guest's name. A drop-down listing of potential guest is then available for selection. 

 

Start Optional Step

End Optional Step

 

  1. Click the Create button to create your reservation. If you want to cancel the creation of your reservation, click the Cancel button.

  2. You (and any guests you specify) will receive an e-mail notification. 

 

Note: If your site has the Auto-Cancel Reservations administrator checkbox enabled, you or one of your guests must check into your reserved room within a specific time period after the reservation begins.

 

As an example, if your reservation begins at 10:00 A.M., and the admin checkbox is enabled and set for 15 minutes, then you or one of your guests must check into your reserved room by 10:15 A.M., or you reservation will be automatically canceled.
