Re: HOW TO: Poor man's ID scanner with automated data insertion into HD (it works!...sort of)

Reviving this old thread to give some feedback: I have given up on the bash script approach here-above, and have gone for a UIpath approach instead. It turns out to be easier to set-up, debug, maintain and share. I also wanted to know if anyone else would be curious about a passport / ID scanning we...

New and improved online check-in feature

Post lock-down recommendations for hotels include minimizing direct face to face contact with guests. In that perspective, online check-in is both a safer and often more convenient process. Hoteldruid already has online check-in built-in, with some limitations and average usability. A new online che...

Re: Room Assignment Large Group

Yes, this is a relatively quiet forum, as you may notice when looking at other posts.

In case you are still wondering, there is a field on the reservation insertion page, called "Number of reservations of this type:". Just insert how many rooms you want for the current reservation.

Re: Variabile Regione Residente Ospite

Sto provando a creare un documento personalizzato e avrei bisogno della Regione di residenza dell'ospite in base al comune italiano di residenza. E' presente tale variabile ? Sorry, no italian here. If the variable you want does not exist, you can create it on the "Configure and Customize" page, wh...

Re: Email Client usage?

have thunderbird send the emails(confirmations, Etc.). Is this possible? How would thunderbird know what to write ? The best you could get, in my opinon, is to create a document with relevant variables that hoteldruid will fill in (name, arrival date, room type, etc..). You would then just need to ...

Re: Documents (Invoices) templates

1. Is there a way to order the extra costs in this file? (Extra beds, Discounts). If I understand you right, you want to change the order of extra-costs inside this document ? Just do the following: open a text editor (e.g. notepad), copy/paste the text from your hoteldruid document, save and close...

Re: Automating reservation insertion from tour operators' automated emails ?

It turns out Hoteldruid (currently) cannot parse e-mail attachment (such as PDFs), which was required for this project. I turned up writing my own bash script using curl, pdfgrep and nokogiri, which seems like a promissing workaround. Following up, in case others have these needs: after some experi...

Re: Guest added to reservation not showing in "Table with all the clients"

I have forgotten to post back here: it turns out this isn't a bug. The distinction client/guest is what I hadn't quite understood:
  • a client is the person making the reservation
  • a guest is the person staying at the venue

Re: Understanding units repetition loop and conditions in Docume

A more elaborate documentation woud be nice to have indeed ! In the meanwhile, according to this page (http://www.hoteldruid.com/wiki/doku.php?id=document), [r4] is a repetition of dates ([r4 array=“dates_array”][/r4]) I found an example by Marco: To display a list of daily rates you can create cust...

Re: Automating reservation insertion from tour operators' automated emails ?

Are you having people fill out the availability_tpl.php form on line No, not yet. But my questions is related to e-mails from tour operators, not direct clients. For this reason I decided to go with Marco paid service So did I :-) Can Marco's program pull more info out Marco said it could. I will a...

Re: Automating reservation insertion from tour operators' automated emails ?

thanks for the hint, I hadn't seen that part. The way I understand it, this is about fetching the e-mails (optionaly filtering by subject and sender). But once we have the messages, how do we process them (i.e. extract information and use that to insert a reservation) ? I will configure it anyways a...

Hi Marko
you need to use "repetition of guests" instead of "repetition of reservation" inside your document. Obviously, the data has to already exist inside HD.
