In this article we explain how to activate the police connection in your Chekin account and connect to AVS to register your guests.
We also give you details about how the integration works.
Activate the Police Connection
In order to connect Chekin to your AVS account you first have to reach out to the spa administration/municipality and ask them to activate the web service connection with the software Chekin.
They will provide you with the credentials to use the web service connection.
Once you have the credentials with you, access your Chekin account and go to Properties section.
Enter one of the units you want to connect to AVS and go to the Legal section:
As you can see from the picture above you have to select AVS in the first field and then you will need to fill these other fields:
Police username: it is the username provided by administration/municipality to use the web service;
Police password: it is the password provided by administration/municipality to use the web service;
Business ID: it corresponds to the firma_id provided by administration/municipality to use the web service;
Housing ID: it corresponds to the objekt_id provided by administration/municipality to use the web service;
Company name: it is the "Firma" name you have in your AVS account;
All this data as said has to be provided to you by the administration/municipality where your unit is based. The administrators of the municipality can obtain the data from their local access of the AVS registration form on request and provide it to you in the form of the "Configuration overview web service".
In case the administration/municipality have some doubts about those data to provide to you, you can request some help to AVS by sending an email to [email protected]
How the integration with AVS works
Find below the details about how this integration works:
guests data are sent to AVS at 22.00 UTC time;
the guest group is sent all together so make sure before that time to have all guests registered in Chekin;
we can send guests data modifications in case these are done before the print;
also in case of cancellation we can erase guests data from your AVS account only if the print has been not done yet.
