Booking Types - Availability - Setting same-day booking rules

> Close off all bookings for the same day at a certain time. Eg. I want to close bookings on a Monday for that same Monday at 5 pm

  • Settings

  • Venues > Select Venue

  • Unavailable dates tab

  • Under the “Latest time for same-day bookings” section, enter the time in the “Latest booking” drop-down by the relevant day(s)

  • You can also put in a message that will appear on the front-end calendar on the widget (E.g. Online bookings are shut for today but call us on 0208 956 3728)

  • Make sure to SAVE the page

NB You can also add this in half-hour increments before the booking start time. E.g If you set this to 30 min - If the customer would like to book for 6 pm, the latest time they would be able to make a booking is 5.29 pm.  

  

> Close off certain booking types for the same day at a certain time. Eg. I want to close bookings on a Monday for that same Monday at 5pm

  • Settings

  • Venues

  • Select Venue

  • Booking Types

  • Scroll down to Availability section

  • Select the time you want to shut the same-day bookings in the "Shut same-day bookings" column

  • Make sure to SAVE the page  


> Don't take bookings at all on a certain day for that same day? (E.g. I don’t want to take bookings on a Saturday, full-stop, for that same Saturday)

  • Settings

  • Venues

  • Unavailable dates tab

  • Under the “Latest time for same-day bookings section”, tick the box in the “no same-day bookings” by the relevant day

  • You can also put in a message that will appear on the front-end calendar (E.g. Online bookings are shut for today but call us on 0208 956 3728)

  • Make sure to SAVE the page


> Stop taking bookings X amount of days before the booking date?

This can be set up using Latest Advance Bookings. NB if this is set up, you do not need to add a shut same-day bookings time.


Please note: If you are closing same day bookings, you do not need to shut same day bookings in the Unavailable Dates section as this will override your Booking Type rules.
