Booking Types - Setting up Auto-confirm for a particular date/event


You can set-up auto-confirm rules for a particular day/occasion within your admin side of Collins. For example, Christmas Day lands on a Sunday this year, normally I am happy to auto-confirm bookings up to 10 guests however for this day I only want to auto-confirm up to 5 people.

To set this up, go to Settings:

  • Venues
  • Select relevant Venue
  • Booking Types
  • Select relevant Booking Type
  • Scroll down to ‘Auto-confirm Rules’ and click ADD ANOTHER
  • You can now choose between making for a rule for ‘Days’ or ‘Date’ - choose Date
  • Select the Date
  • Enter the relevant rules
  • Make sure to  SAVE the settings
