Hidden Items viewable only by Admins and Agents

edited February 2011 in News and Updates
I have a transportation service that I want to be able to book only when customers call me or one of my agents directly.  Basically, I want it hidden to outside parties.  Right now, it is viewable, and bookable via my website, which I don't want the world to see.  When I click the node for "visable" on the advanced tab, or if I change the default status to unavailable it hides it from everyone.  Default status of "Blackout" does nothing.


  • Same need here. Some inventory items i want only to be visible in our Checkfront Frontdesk GUI and not visible to our clients. So when a specific request arrives by phone, email or directly at our reception I can add it to his existing reservation.

    Is it a feature request/ in the pipeline. By the way, is there a place
    where we can see what features have been requested, have been approved
    and at what stage they are at?

    I am still not sure what exactly blackout status means. Any light on this?

  • I think the "hidden" box in the advanced tab of the item will do what you need. I haven't used it myself, but I recall seeing that explained somewhere.
  • Hi

    The hidden checkbox will hide the item form everyone (including the admin).

    In order to have a bookable item (hidden)  you would need to put it into a separate category, which you would need to hide from your booking page. This process is fairly simple in WordPress, but needs some custom code for the Dropbox.
