If you want to restrict the number of covers that can be booked per half hour, perhaps to not overload the kitchen, and/or save tables for walk-ins, you can restrict how many covers the system can be auto-confirmed in between certain slots.
Venues and choose the venue
Booking Types > click on the relevant booking type
Scroll down to "Limit arrivals"
You can set up an individual rule by selecting ‘Add Limit’ > select to set this rule either as a 'Weekday' or a specific 'Date', then add the time range and number you want to restrict it too
If you have a consistent rule throughout service, you can select ‘Add Multiple Limits’ to do this quickly and a pop-up window will appear to ‘generate cover limits’. From here you can:
> select the weekday(s) this rule should apply
> the time range you want to set the intervals for
> the interval
> how many covers per time slot
Once the rules have been added, make sure to SAVE
Alternatively, you can copy rules from another Booking Type, by selecting the 'Copy from type' button. This will copy over existing limits from a selected booking type. To do this:
Select the 'Copy from type' button
Select the booking type you wish to copy the limits from
If you'd like to set this up so that only a certain amount of covers can be auto confirmed within the whole venue, go to:
Venues > choose the venue
Limit Arrivals section on the left-hand side panel
Set your rule(s) individually by selecting ‘Add Limit’ or you can use the ‘Add Multiple Limits’ as detailed above
