Scheduled Check-in/Check-out message

Minut can now help you communicate with your guests more effectively and efficiently. With scheduled check-in/check-out, this feature helps you communicate with your guests with minimal effort on your part.

To schedule your messages: Go to the Guest connect tab in the web app, or 'Settings > Guest Connect' in the mobile app as shown below:

Click Add message (or the + sign on mobile) and choose one of the templates and edit your message.

Pick the timing, save the message, and you’re all done - This will be your default message.

Shortcodes:

To give you more freedom when you draft the messages, we let you add shortcodes. These are bits of information specific to each home, and they will vary between homes and guests. Examples include home and guest names as well as check-in and check-out dates.

Shortcodes can be added from the message keyboard.

To configure home specific shortcodes, such as check-in instructions go to 'Home settings > Shortcodes'.
