Features to build the perfect digital guide.
We pack so much into goGuidebook that it's hard to list it all but we'll do our best.
Features of our Welcome Guides
Organized Digital Content
Build a complete digital guide for your guests. Add categories, images, videos, text, documents and everything in between. Your guide can be edited 24x7 from your dashboard. Need to add an item to the checkout procedure? No problem. Need to add a new band to the lineup? Do it in minutes!
Brand It Your Style
Set your guide colors, fonts, background images, and customize every nook and cranny of your guide. With our Account Branding feature, you can share branding settings across all of your guidebooks or modify them individually. Should you need to change anything with your brand, make the change in one place and push it to all guides.
Privacy Control Everything
You have all the control when it comes to privacy. Each topic you create can be set to public or private. Public topics can be viewed by anyone, private topics can only be viewed using an invite link or share link. When generating invite links, you can set a date range where the link is valid.
Guest Recommendations With Maps
Pin all your favorite restaurants, attractions, bars, or whatever is important to you on a Google Map. Your guests can use the interactive map to see your pins. Add notes to each pin to make it personalized. Notes could include your favorite dish at the restaurant or what to bring to the attraction.
Collect Guest Feedback/Reviews
Our built-in feedback/reviews collection form allows you to gather feedback from your guests from within your guidebook. This feedback is often left by guests during their stay. This feedback can help find dissatisfied guests prior to them leaving reviews publicly. It also gives a forum for guests to provide constructive criticism without making it public.
Works On Every Device
Optimized for mobile but works seamless and lightning fast on every device including laptops & tablets. The guide was designed to look and feel like a mobile app with quick transitions between content and a layout that everybody is used to.
Invites By Text or Email
Create invites to generate individual links to your guide. The invite links grant access to private topics and can be set to work a specific number of days before arrival and/or after departure. Invite notifications can be sent out via text or email and can even be scheduled into the future.
Multiple Guides, One Account
Anyone with more than one guide will appreciate this. Topics, maps and branding can be synced between multiple guides making updates a breeze. Have multiple vacation rentals in the same location? Use the same map for all. Have some topics that are the same between guides? Update it in one place and our system pushes the changes to all applicable guide(s).
Instantly Generate Printable Version
With one click generate a printable PDF version of your digital guide. Perfect for guests who might not be tech-savvy. Also generate a one-page printable flyer perfect to hang on the wall. Flyer contains a QR code and link for quick access to the digital guidebook once guests arrive at the accommodation/event.
QR Codes For Everything
Each guide you create comes with a matching QR code. Print the QR code and place it on anything you want. Each topic within each guide also includes a QR code. Print the QR code for the topic on operating the coffee maker and place it on the physical coffee maker. Guests are taken directly to the topic when scanning it.
Analytics & Tracking
We provide important analytics and tracking so you can see how your guide is performing. See individual statistics for each invite you create including whether the guide was viewed and how many times. High-level analytics is also provided showing total guide views and guide views per day over the trailing 30 days.
Grant sub-user access on a per-guide basis. Great for property managers who want to hold all the guides in their account but grant access for homeowners or hosts to help manage them. When you add a sub-user, they only have the ability to edit the guides you assign to them.
Share With Ease: Send invites by link, SMS, email or create printable guides & QR codes.
Your guests can unlock access prior to arrival via link, SMS invite or email invite. Need a printable version? No problem! Instantly generate a PDF and place it in the accommodation. Also generate a one-page flyer template with QR code. Print the flyer and frame it to provide quick access to the digital guide while at the accommodation/event.

Let's hear some reviews from our clients.
Great, great, great! We love it and thinking back to when we used to have a printed welcome guide, I'm not sure how I could ever go back. Managing a small boutique hotel, every time we made a change I'd have to print off 15 copies and go into each room and put each new page of the guide in a plastic sleeve. It would take my entire morning. I no longer fear guide changes!

Our vacation rental is our retirement plan but it was become time-consuming to manage. As retirees, we're not "techy" but in an effort to streamline our business we gave this product a try. It was simple for us to put together a guide for our vacation rental and our guests love it. Thanks for making us old people feel modern.
