BookingCenter's Self Check-in System gives you three options for integrating Digital Signatures into the Self Check-in process. You can simply just request a Digital Signature from the guest or make it required before the guest can Check-in.
The process is fully integrated with MyPMS with synchronized status updates, customized messaging, and optional SMS Messaging (subscription required). To learn more about how to setup, see eSign - Digital Document Signing
The Self Check-in process is designed to only allow the guest to start and complete Self Check-in ON the Check-in Date.based on the criteria set in the system and the booking itself. What this means is that the Guest will only see the Check-in button and be allowed to complete the process if all criteria has been met, similar to the check-in process in MyPMS. If the Booking Criteria has not been met, then the a message will display telling the guest what action to take I.e. Add Payment Method or Signature Required.
When using esign with the Self Check-in process you can require a signature before the Guest checks-in on the arrival date. Therefore, If the Guest clicks on the Self Check-in link BEFORE the Check-in date, then the Guest will be able to Manage the Booking ie. update payment method, but the Check-in button will not display.
