Add-on Assignment

If an add-on type requires that a specific add-on unit be assigned to the guest at check-in, choose the Assign Specific Units option (for example: Golf Cart).

Not assigning specific units is appropriate when the add-on type does not have specific units or specific units are not assigned at check-in (for example: Cabana).

3. Create Add-On Units

  • Click on an Add-On Type from the list.
  • Click the Add Add-On button.
  • Enter a name for the add-on unit in the Name field.
  • Click the Save button.
