There are two Letters that need to be created for the Self Check-in process:  "Self Check-in" and  "Room Entry Information"

Both need to have a delivery method selected, but only the "Self Check-in" Letter needs to be scheduled in Auto Letters. The "Room Entry Information" Letter  contains your customized room entry information and is displayed and automatically sent to the Guest when self check-in is complete. This Letter DOES NOT need to be scheduled .

Remember, both of these Letters also need to be set as the Default for Self Check-in Letters and the method of delivery selected, email and/or SMS. See Self Check-in | Default Letters

To schedule the timing of when the "Self Check-in" Letter is sent to the Guest ( before or on the check-in date) use Auto Letters.
