Having auto no-show active means that if a guest does not show up on the the next day after arrival date by 2:05AM (your time zone), the system will automatically change the status of the reservation to a no-show.
When you enable the option to automatically change status to "No Show" for reservations not checked-in, all past reservations you have in the system with statuses "Confirmed" and "Confirmation Pending" will be changed to "No-Show" and room assignments will be removed from them.
If a reservation becomes a no show, it will no longer be in your calendar and the availability will be opened up again.
If the user toggles "Auto change status to "No Show"" to ON, three radio buttons will be displayed with options below the toggle (if toggle is disabled or if the user doesn't have permissions, no sub-options are shown):
Booking.com is currently the only channel that supports this new functionality.
Please, check further information about this feature on this article: How to report No Show reservations to the channels from myfrontdesk
