Within a Booking/Enquiry - Area Search/Smart Space Finder

If unable to accommodate an Enquiry on the day/time enquired for, Area Search is the easy way to find the next available date/few dates within one venue or across multiple venues.

Within the Enquiry details page, 'Area Search' is the second tab along and can be used to check for alternative availability for various scenarios:
 


1) Unable to accommodate enquiry at the requested venue, but wish to check availability at your other sites?

> Venues > this will display all venues on your user account  >  select those you wish to check availability

The Dates, Times, Minimum duration, and Guests fields will automatically be taken from the initial enquiry, but should you wish to amend these details you can

> Find

 
Search results will display to the right hand side > if you would like to book the customer in to this venue at the available time, click 'Select' and the Enquiry details will auto-fill the Booking Details, ready for you to confirm the booking.

    

2) If you have an enquiry asking for a specific room/full hire/table/zone or specific day/date/month to book, all of these parameters can be checked in Area Search

Eg.
Tell me when you have availability in the Garden for any date in June? 
Tell me a Thursday in December that can accommodate this booking?
Tell me a a Friday in the next two months when the special window table is available?
Tell me a Friday in December that can accommodate this booking across any of your sites?

You can make the search as specific as needs required by searching by:

> a specific Date range i.e. for a summer party in July, you could search for 1 July 2017 - 31st July
> if they wish to book on a specific day, you can select a 'Weekday'
> Search Times - enter a start time range
> Minimum Duration
> Guests
> Area(s) - if you have Zones set up in your system you can search for a particular Zone i.e. Bar, Mezzanine, Function Room, or for a particular Table i.e. Table 10 (by the window)
