To start doing this, go to
>Click on the booking type
Scroll down to Auto Confirm Rules - click 'Add Another' under Days and select the days of the week you'd like to activate this for (EG: Friday and Saturday). Input the min guests (normally 1) and the max guests (this will depend on the venue, the most common guest size is 8) and the time parameters you'd like them to arrive before and after.
If you have an existing booking type with the same rules you'd like to set up, for example both your Lunch and Dinner auto confirm max is 8 all week, you can use the 'Copy from type' button. This will copy over existing Auto-confirm rules from a selected booking type. To do this:> Select the 'Copy from type' button
> Select the booking type you wish to copy the rules from
Please note that the max to auto confirm is the biggest group size that will automatically be confirmed. The 'Max People' column in the availability section is the largest party size you can take for an enquiry, EG: 60
Underneath the Auto Confirm Rules is the Areas For This Booking Type section. If you have your Tables/Areas section set up, simple click 'Edit Areas' and select the very top box to select all tables in your venue. This will be the list of tables that Collins will auto confirm bookings into. If you would like to remove tables out of this list to keep them for walk ins - simply remove them by unticking the relevant table.
This will be the hierarchy that Collins will place tables into, so if you would like to adjust this, you can use the arrows on the far right to re-order tables.
