Database copy is created on a daily basis.
Automatic window refresh (backups, reminders, online bookings) (6) – frequency of refreshing data in the program. The recommended value is 60. We do not recommend modifying this parameter without justified necessity. Setting this value too low may cause drastic performance issues.
Credit card number encryption (7) –
Attention! Storing credit card data in KWHotel is not recommended by our company. The program is not adjusted to store such information.
Such data should be stored in a safe, isolated location. This function allows to insert credit card data (except for CVV code) in a reservation window (“Credit card” tab).
To activate the option, two keys must be set up – the primary and secondary one. The primary is stored directly in the database. The secondary is stored on the computer.
This ensures that credit card data cannot be viewed on another workstation, than was used to encrypt it.
Keys can only be inserted when KWHotel has been started as an Administrator (right click on the desktop icon > Run as Administrator).
When keys are created, please accept the regulations and save changes.
The credit card tab will appear in a reservation screen after you restart the program. Keys can be deleted by pressing the “Delete keys” button.
