Diary - ‘Options’ explained

At the top of your Diary, you have an 'OPTIONS' button which gives different ways in which to view your Tables/Areas and bookings/enquiries for the day.

Starting from the top:

1. Option to show bookings marked as Left:

> When bookings are marked as Left in the Check-in panel, they are taken out of the Diary grid and moved to the Finished Bookings list in the left-hand check-in panel. To keep bookings that have been marked as left/finished in the Diary grid, select ‘Include left’ from the ‘OPTIONS’ drop-down:  


2. Option to show Cancelled bookings:

> To view any cancelled bookings for the day in your diary grid, select ‘Include cancelled’ from the ‘OPTIONS’ drop-down. These will show in the New/Open enquiries column at the top of the grid and will lie in the Finished Bookings list in the left-hand check-in list:

  

3. Option to Group by Zone:

> You can group your tables in the Diary grid by your different Zones so your team can clearly see which Tables lie within your Restaurant or Bar, for example. Simply select ‘Group by zone’ from the ‘OPTIONS’ drop-down list:  


4. The next option is 'Close Areas' - see the hyperlinked guide for an overview of how to stop Auto-confirmed bookings from being placed on certain Tables/Areas

5. Option to activate Compact Layout

> If you would like to see a zoomed out version of your Diary, so you can have an overview of most or all of your tables on one page, you can do this by activating the Compact Layout. Once this is selected, the compact layout will stay active for the rest of your session.
