Close Areas - How to stop an area from being automatically booked

If you want to close off tables or Zones, so they aren't automatically booked on a particular date or weekday, you can set this up in your Settings. To find this, go to 



Click on the Venue's name 

On the left side, scroll down to 'Close Areas' 

First select if you want to close areas individual by Table/Area or by Zone

Then select when you want to close these areas, either for a particular Date or if you wish to close the area(s) on a recurring weekday

Finally, select the time range you want to close the areas. If you extend this past midnight, Collins will still treat this as the same day and close/shade the areas in the diary in the same way. 


Once you do this, you'll see that the tables in the Diary/Floorplan view are shaded off, to indicate that these have been closed.
