Select Miscellaneous>Lookup, select the Lookup button from the Profile Search screen, or choose the Lookup button from the Profile screen Options menu to search for a profile in an external loyalty system database such as a membership program database.
You may also perform a lookup from other points in OPERA where the Profile Search screen is displayed, for example:
Note: When the Profiles>Force Auto Central Lookup application parameter is set to Y, you are guided to do a central lookup when creating a reservation if the name you enter on the reservation cannot be found in the OPERA database. The central lookup can reduce the likelihood that a duplicate profile will be created when the guest's profile is not found by a profile search. See Profile Lookup Menu for details on Auto Central Lookup.
Note: The Membership>Lookup Type application setting may specify that lookups are available for any one or more of the following types of programs: guest loyalty program, scheduled activities program, and/or gaming program, depending on which programs are in use at the property. If your property uses two or more of these programs, you are prompted to choose the type of program to do a lookup when you select the Lookup button. To look up a profile in the guest loyalty program, select the Loyalty button.
The Lookup screen appears.
If you are working from the guest's Profile screen Options menu, or if the guest record is selected on the Profile Search screen, information for the current guest will automatically appear on the Lookup screen. Provide the following information to perform a profile lookup. When you are done, select the OK button to submit the lookup to the external system.
