To connect your Tablet account on myfrontdesk you must already have an account with this channel. If you do not yet have an account, click here to read about the selection process and fill out the application form (link at bottom of page).

  4. Click to 'Enable Channel'
  5. Enter the Property ID provided by the channel and click "Request Activation". This will send a request to the Tablet to enable the connection for channel management.

The channel will be set to 'Activation Pending' until you're notified that the rooms are ready for mapping.

Once we receive approval, our team will enable the connection, and Tablet Hotels will appear as 'Ready for Mapping' on the Channel List.

Note: If you have not been yet been approved by Tablet, your request will be rejected.
