Online check-out emails to be sent at customised time
Online check-out emails are currently sent at 5pm day before arrival. For properties with high focus on a relaxed luxury experience this has caused negative guest reactions. Ex a guests checks-in at 4.30pm, for a 1 night getaway and on their way to the spa 30min later they get a an email prompting online check-out. Whilst it may seem efficient it might not be a relaxing guest experience. In addition, properties with a high capture rate for dinner would not want to push their guest to take actions before dinner charges has been added to the bill. The ability to set the time for the online check-out email on individual property level (rather than standard 5pm day before arrival) would help to provide a better guest- and operational experience

Currently, online checkout is sent at 6 pm PST which is 3 am CET. When a guest arrives anytime after 4 pm PST they receive an online checkout only several hours after they arrive. For guests that arrive after 6 pm PST and have completed an online check-in, they receive an online checkout before they actually arrive which is confusing the guest.
It would be good to allow the property to pick a specific time to send the Online Check-in and Check-out based upon their specific local times and property preferences. i.e. corporate, convention and leisure guests have different preferences on when they would like to receive this email.
