Booking Types - Picking different time and duration slot intervals

When setting up your booking type, you can choose the intervals at which your ‘start’ time (left in the below screenshot) and ‘until’ time (right in the below screenshot) will display on the booking widget.



First, to set the intervals for the booking ‘start’ time, you need to set your Time Slot Interval. Here you can specify whether the customer can enquire/book per 5, 10, 15, 30 minute, 1 hour, etc. (up to 4 hour) intervals.


To set this up, go to Settings:

> Venues

> Select Venue

> Booking Type

> Select the relevant Booking Type

> Go to ‘Time slot interval’ and in the drop down box select either 5, 10 ,15, 30 and so on.

> SAVE



If I set my Time Slot Interval to 30 minutes, Collins would check the earliest and latest booking time of my booking type and display the ‘start’ time drop-down at 30 minute intervals from my earliest booking time up until my latest booking time.





Second, to set the intervals for the booking ‘until’ time, you need to set your Duration Slot Interval. Here you can specify how long the customer will be able to enquire/book for in intervals of up to  5, 10, 15, 30 minutes, 1 hour, etc.


To set this up, go to Settings:

> Venues

> Select Venue

> Booking Type

> Select the relevant Booking Type

> Go to ‘Duration slot interval’ and in the drop down box select either 5, 10 ,15, 30 and so on.

> SAVE



If I set my Duration Slot Interval to 15 minutes, Collins would check the min and max duration of my booking type and display the ‘until’ time drop-down at 15 minute intervals from my min duration until my max duration.
