Bulk Importing Reservations
Transferring over from a previous system and want to add a lot of reservations quickly? Our Quick Import tool is the perfect way to streamline your myfrontdesk setup experience.

Adding your reservations is the final step to set up myfrontdesk before you move on to activating myallocator distribution.

Edit the cost for specific days:
Click on the edit icon in the total price field to modify based on specific days.
Add extra rooms or beds
If a reservation you are adding is for multiple rooms, including of the same type, you'll need to add each of them and the date range by clicking on the green "+" sign.
- To remove an added line on a reservation, click on the red "x"
- To completely remove a reservation click on the green "-" sign.
If you are adding a reservation for multiple dorm beds:
Add each dorm bed reserved as a separate line as shown in the red box below and set the number of adults for each bed as 1. Entering only the first line and adding multiple adults will not properly update your availability. Incorrectly entering the details of your reservations could lead to potential over bookings.
Click the save button in the bottom right corner to fully add a reservation
