How to set a user defined lock box code

Lock box codes can be set in one of three way:

  • At the property level
  • A unique lock box code can set for each reservation
  • Allow the guest to specify a lock box code

This screen refers to the third option only:

  1. To allow a guest to specify a lock box code, the 'Allow guest to specify lock box code' box must be checked.
  2. The slider will determine the number of characters the guest is allowed to enter when selecting a personal lock box code.

For example:

To set a 4 digit code, the guest could use the digits: 9569

To set a 6 digit code, the guest could use the digits: 684285

Once complete, check the "Click if you have completed this page" box to store the settings and click the Next button to continue to the next page, or use the dropdown menu to select another feature.
