This app allows you to embed the Planyo reservation system on your facebook page so your clients can view and search for availability, see details of your offer and make an online reservation, all while visiting your facebook page.
In order to get started, go to the Planyo App page
Then select the target page for the Planyo app. If you don't have a company page, you'll need to create one first. Note: Facebook has a policy of not allowing any custom tabs from being added to a facebook page for pages with less than 2000 likes. This will prevent the planyo app from working as well. Your alternative is then to redirect your facebook users to your website in order to create a reservation.
Now go to your facebook page. You'll see there's a new tab on it called Online Booking
Before planyo can display any content in this tab, you'll need to edit the tab's settings and tell the planyo app which planyo site id it should connect to. Go to one of the default tabs (Wall or Info) and click Edit page
Now click Apps
on the left and then click on Go to App
under Planyo Reservation System App
. This will take you to the planyo app settings.
First enter your planyo site ID. You can find out what it is in Planyo's administrative panel in the Settings tab (Site Settings).
Your current site ID is 34937
. Then, if you also use advanced integration to embed the whole reservation system on your own website, you can enter the exact URL of the webpage where you embedded the planyo module (plugin). If you leave this empty, simple integration will be used instead (users will be redirected to your site on planyo.com for some parts of the reservation such as email verification or to view details of their reservation). Other settings let you use your own CSS stylesheet, set the default mode of the planyo app (search box or resource list) and optionally other settings of the search and resource list functions. You can also modify the attribute string (click here to read more about this)
. Click Submit
and go back to the Online Booking
tab on your facebook page.
As you see, the tab now displays a list of holiday homes from our offer and their availability. Clients can click either on the calendar to go to the reservation form or they can click on one of the homes to see their details. Please note that all screens displayed in your app can be customized by you with templates. You can do this here
(or go to Settings / Templates
