Choosing your colours to match your website

 

You can choose the colours displayed on your grid and information using the Look and Feel section of Channels > + Web Booking. This means you can further customise the grid to match your website theme.
 
We recommend you make sure you book button is a bright call to action colour and stands out from the rest of the page. You should also check the colours work after you have chosen your grid layout so they are right for both desktop and mobile versions.

Adding a Header and Footer


You can add a Header and Footer to your grid, this is especially important if you are using the Full Page integration. 

If your website has an image that is displayed on each page or you simply have images you wish to show then you can upload these in the Header and Footer section under My Channels > + Web Booking.

Booking Page Questions

You may add extra questions to ask your guests at the time of booking to prepare for their stay, such as whether they have any allergies.
 
Type a question (which is shown to the user) and a short code (displayed to you in the booking details rather than the full question), choose the format for answering it, and (if applicable) enter the list of options you wish to give the user.
 
When you have saved the question, it will appear in your list of questions. When you are happy it, tick the 'Include' box to make it appear on your Guestlink + Web Booking customer details form.

Adding Google Analytics

 
If you use Google Analytics on your website, you may have users tracked from your main website through Guestlink + Web Booking all the way to the booking confirmation. This will allow you to see how many people look at your availability, how many start a booking, and how many follow it through to completion.
 
In order to take advantage of this, you need to enter your Google Analytics key in the Google Analytics section of Channels > + Web Booking and you also need to amend the address of your Guestlink + Web Booking page.
 
Since Google Analytics is third-party content, the law on third-party cookies requires that you have the user's consent to use it.
