User Access to the RMS Vault

In order for your staff to access the credit card information contained in the RMS Vault you will need to give them access in their Security Profile.

See the article Give Users Access to the RMS Vault

If you are not currently using individual user login for access to RMS we suggest this as 'Best Practice'. See Users and Security for more information on how to use this feature.

Bookings from Channels

Once the Vault is implemented by RMS (Feb 2015) credit card information from any online channel you are connected to will automatically be stored into the RMS Vault.

RMS Book Now Button and the RMS Vault

You now have the option to use the RMS Vault for your online bookings from your RMS Book Now Button.

By using this feature you will not be taking a deposit for your online bookings but instead taking credit card information as the confirmation for the bookings.  This information will be stored in the RMS Vault.
