4.3 How it works
When a booking is made or modified Beds24 will send information to Chekin.
The Chekin invitation URL will be stored in an info item called CHEKIN_URL in the booking. This can be sent to the guest by auto action and template variable.
The text of the info code CHEKIN_STATUS tells you the status of the booking in Chekin.
If you choose not to send modifications, the booking will not be resent while it contains the CHEKIN_URL info code, if you delete the info code from the booking and delete the booking from Chekin, it will be able to resend.
