Check-Inn Redesign Update

Check-Inn v.6.0, small screen, regular grid

Work continues on the Check-Inn redesign! Check-Inn version 6.0 will be a complete new look and feel. Because every screen of the program is being modernized (including background processes not “seen” by the end-user), the development is a complex project involving the work of multiple programmers, technicians, quality assurance, and testers.

Check-Inn v.6.0, full screen, large grid

We have been listening to our customers for feedback on design and functionality. We have often heard that no matter what we do to the program, the most important thing is to keep the navigation through Check-Inn easy and intuitive. It is very important for us to make sure that the thousands of current users are happy with the flow of the program.The main screen of Check-Inn will have a different look, with modern functionality. The reservation grid will now reside on the main screen, and can easily be re-sized to take up the full screen. This will allow a broad view of more rooms across a longer time-frame.There will be several new features added to the main screen, such as reservation grid right-click functionality. This includes:  check-in/out, change reservation date, cancel reservation, and more. The bars of the grid will show the primary guest name, and mouse-over will reveal additional details, such as the full name, arrival/departure date and guest telephone number.There will now be a status box that will clearly indicate the status of both automatic and manual backups. Even more importantly, you will have the option to set the second auto-backup to a different location.  The second auto-backup can be set to a cloud backup service, external device, separate server or secondary hard drive.  So even if one system completely fails, you will have peace of mind knowing that you can easily restore from your secondary auto-backup.  However, we still highly recommend performing periodic manual backups.

A great deal of development and testing remains to be completed before Check-Inn v.6.0 is ready for release. Take a look at the screenshots and let us know what you think!

  1. Hello Mr. Patel,
    Thank you for pointing that out! I have fixed the screen shots so that you can click on these to take a closer look at them (just make sure to refresh your browser or clear your cache).
    I can’t give you a specific release date yet as we are in the middle of development. This is truly an enormous project, since we need to re-design and re-code every single aspect of every screen in Check-Inn, in addition to adding and testing the new functionality.
    Please continue to follow our Social Media, Blog and Check-Inn Quarterly Newsletters for more updates!

  2. first thing is Thank You very much for further modernization of Check inn program since long time , and I want to know about when it will release did we has to change all previous setting about property?

  3. Hello,
    You are very welcome! We are hard at work with the project but we are still in the middle of development. We do not have a release date as we are still coding the software, but we will update you as soon as we have a better idea of when it will be ready. A great deal of development and testing needs to be completed so that the new version of Check-Inn is as stable and reliable as the current version.
    Thank you!

  4. new check inn gone have separate folio like choice or any other system and receipts separate it will be great

  5. Hello Mr. Patel,
    Thank you for reaching out to us. I am not sure exactly which software options you are using and how you would like to separate the folio and receipt. Please give our support team a call at 503-643-8162, option 2 and they should be able to clarify your needs and provide you a solution.

  6. I love the HOME screen on new check inn. It’s awesome!!!
    It will eliminate my Reservation Book, that I have to get it made!

  7. Thank you for the feedback! We think it will make everything much more user-friendly. The current grid is accessed through the Reservations screen, but so far everyone likes the idea of having it be more accessible on the home screen. The new right click functionality will also make the check-in and check-out process very easy.

    As long as you have an active Service Contract with us, you will receive the new version of Check-Inn when it is released. Stay tuned for more information!

  9. I hope to see changes on reservation greed that will eliminate the name of the customer or the room number that is already reserve for the day that you try to reserve again for the different guest for same day that appears when you are reserving the room that makes should show only the rooms will be available for that day or more days that you are trying to reserve.

  10. Thank you for your input! It will be much less confusing on the new version of Check-Inn. Prior to check-in time you will be able to see the past day and the guests that are still checked into the property, even if they are scheduled to depart today. You will have the ability to create a reservation for today’s date for that same room and see both the current checked-in guest and the new reservation set to arrive that same day.
    Of course, you will need to be aware that the program will extend the current guest’s stay and you will have a conflict if you have not checked-out that guest by check-in time. This is the same as the current functionality. Because you mention above that you are seeing guests on the grid that are due to check-out today, it may be that your check-in time is set too early or the guest is not being checked-out prior to check-in time. Please give us a call so that we can take a look at your settings.
    Thank you and please let us know if you have any other suggestions!

  11. Hello,
    In this new version do we have feature called ” Parking Pass”. When you check guest in it will print the guest registration information along with payment. Is anyway that it also print the parking pass so we can give to the guest.
    2nd Any big change in Account Receivables? When you Print out Invoice it generate Invoice number. If you go back to account receivables and open the Invoice the same invoice jump by one number. It should keep the same old invoice number because its a old invoice and Front desk like to see the information in the invoice.
    Thank you

  12. Thank you for your feedback! We have not yet had any requests for a Parking Pass option for Check-Inn. We will add this as a feature request and consider this for future versions.
    When we first release Version 6.0 of Check-Inn there will be no major changes to Account Receivables. However, it is on our project schedule to begin making upgrades to this part of the program post-release. We do have a feature request in place for the invoice numbers.
    One of the great benefits of the new version of Check-Inn will be that the updated code will allow us more flexibility to implement feature requests, and re-vamp existing functionality.
    Please stay tuned for updates as we move forward with the re-design process!

  13. Hello Sunny!
    The best way to answer your question is to have you give us a call at 800-950-8995. I would like to clarify what functionality you are referring to.
    If you are referring to the current ability to see the number of occupied rooms and bring up the Room Order Guest List by clicking the “Occupied” section, then yes, this functionality will remain the same in Check-Inn 6.0. The only difference is that this is located on the right side of the screen instead of the left side.
    Please give us a call for more information. Thank you!
