Maintaining Your Account Profile
Use the account profile page to manage your own account. From here, you can change your email address, update your password, access support, and generate RSS feeds/iCal links from your booking calendar. The orange star next to some of the fields denotes a required field.
You can enter your account profile by clicking on the button with your name on it to the right side of the main menu bar and selecting Profile from the drop-down menu.
First & Last Name
This is the ID you will enter when logging into your account. You cannot login with your email address, which is a common mistake when first using the system. If you are having difficulties signing in, make sure you are using the login ID and not your email address.
A recurring email report with a summary of statistics and activity on Checkfront. Use the select box to choose the day of the week you’d like to receive this. You also have the option to choose never.
Enter your mobile phone number here if you wish to use SMS notifications. The third party Twilio add-on is required for this.
Your mobile phone number is also a requirement if you wish to use Two-Factor Authentication as an additional security measure when accessing your account. See below for more details.
Two-Factor Authentication is an additional account security measure, above and beyond your standard username and password. With this feature, your smartphone is also required to access your account.
After entering your username and password, you will be required to obtain a six digit passcode by one of two methods:
1) Google Authenticator app
2) A simple text message
Setup is easy and the feature adds an added layer of security to help keep your account information safe and private.
For full details on how to activate and use the service, please visit our Two-Factor Authentication support document.
Changing Your Account Password
To change your password, click on the Change Password button in the left sidebar and follow the instructions provided in the pop-up window. You will need to enter your current password and then the new one. The new password must also be confirmed before you can continue.
To maintain a high level of security in your account, the password should contain a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols. The stronger the password, the higher it will score in the coloured strength bar. A password must have a strength of 50 or more, or it will not be accepted.
Once you have finished entering the new password, click Save to finalize the change.
You can also access Checkfront Support from the left sidebar.
From here, you can search the support library, send a question in to our support team, or review the most recent system updates.
iCal Calendar Feeds / RSS Booking Feed
Just below these buttons are an RSS feed of new bookings and an iCal calendar link for your account.
This will create a link for all your bookings. For more control, see this document on iCal Subscriptions.
