The driving direction feature allows you to include a map or driving directions on how your clients can or should navigate to their campsite/lot once they arrive at your campground.
The driving directions/map will be included in the confirmation email sent to your clients. Your clients will be able to click on a link from within the email that will open up a map for the lot assigned to that reservation.
Driving Directions are Attached to Your Lot¶
A lot can have a maximum of two driving directions.
The uploaded map can be a PDF or an Image(s). If you decide to upload an image(s) the system will convert your image(s) into one PDF document and use that PDF document as the map direction.
The uploaded files must be less than 5mb in size.
