When in your Diary/Floorplan/Run Sheet, an ‘Add Booking’ button will appear at the top left of the page. Here is where you can easily add your bookings for that day and for future dates. When adding a booking in for that day, Collins will try to auto-fill some of the fields for you as detailed below:
- Type - Collins will check the time availability of your Booking Types and if there is only one booking type available at that time Collins will auto-fill the Type field (only applicable on today’s date)
- Guests - If using the ‘Walk-In’ buttons to add a booking of 1 - 5 people, Collins will auto-fill the Guests field
- Time - If the booking is for today’s date, Collins will auto-fill the time to the nearest 15 minutes.
- Until - If a Booking Type has a Max Duration, this field will auto-fill. Then when entering the number of guests, the duration will dynamically change to reflect the numbers added in the "Rules dependent on number of guests" section in the booking type.
NB - once you have filled in the type, number of guests and time - Collins will automatically display suitable tables and table combinations that are available in the ASSIGN TO AREAS section as per the rules set up within the Areas for this Booking type within the Settings.
