Linking Hire Types to Venues (Venue Hire Type)


Venue Hire Type (VHT) is a section within Venues that lets you assign a Hire Type to a Venue.

This is found by going to ADMIN > DATA > VENUE HIRE TYPE.

Note: you can also set the venue hire type by going to the Venue itself e.g. ADMIN > DATA > VENUE > VENUE HIRE TYPE [tab]. Both methods have the same result.
