The following steps review how to set a guest profile to 'Do Not Rent' if you do not want to rent them a room at your property in the future.
- Reservations made through any online channel (eg booking engine, OTA's) create a new guest profile, and therefore will not show as 'Do Not Rent' if the guest books via this method in the future.
- Reservations made via property direct will need to select the same guest profile, if a new profile is created or selected, 'Do Not Rent' will not appear. It is important to ensure guests with multiple profiles are merged regularly. Please see these articles on Why you should merge guest profiles and the RoomkeyPMS Match & Merge feature.
