First/ Initial connection (when no mapping available at all in Instant) –

•             Connect/ Map using dynamic mapping feature (no change to current)

•             Self Mapping available at this point

•             If you click on ‘Setup’, it will auto divert to the dynamic mapping page

•             Follow the standard connection process

•             Push sync when connection is fully enabled to STAAH

 

Once Booking.com is connected with mapping -

 

•             Dynamic mapping not available

•             Add mapping etc using the new mapping feature

•             Self Mapping not available. If you click on ‘View Setting’ you will be auto diverted to channel mapping module

 

**NEW** Booking.com mapping

·        New room and rate plan creation will replace dynamic mapping

·        Why? This is the 1st part of releasing full content API

·        Same concept but allows you to create room type and rate plan in booking.com

·        First phase – Instant only

EXCEPTION: First time connection to booking.com via Instant channel manager. For initial connection, all remains the same using dynamic mapping to map.

Reason: We cannot push sync until connection process is fully enabled
