BookingLive: Online Booking System

Bookings Manager


In this section you will learn how to manage your bookings.

Bookings Module

Below is a screen shot of the bookings module. You can search and filter for bookings using the search criteria on the left.

Bookings Shortcuts

A number of shortcut icons can be enabled on your system as defined below.

Icon Name Description
View Booking This allows you to open information, but in a 'Read Only' form.

Booking Summary This gives a quick summary of the Booking Reference, Purchaser and Status of the booking.
This indicates an item can be edited, clicking this often yields a popup with edit fields.
Super Edit

This sends you back into the booking process to edit a booking where, You can change details about the previous booking such as date/time/participants/add more courses.


The process takes a copy of the selected booking and places it in a new basket within the booking prcess.  While editing the basket content there are two bookings - one completed, safe, in the  admin - and the pending booking being edited.  

For more information on Super Edit, please click here.


This allows a refund of a booking. If you use Sagepay as a Payment Gateway, then this is an automatic process.

Additional Payment

This allows you to make an additional payment against a booking in the system.

If you have a Payment Gateway integrated, then this payment can be directed through a gateway e.g. Credit Card.


This creates a new pending booking (new order reference number) using the existing customer's purchaser details.  The initial booking (and purchaser details) are unaffected in any way by the new booking.

This could be used to make a booking for a regular customer after searching for a previous booking of theirs. Please do not confuse this with a super edit - which alters the existing booking.

Print Participants Under BOOKINGS > BOOKING ITEM, you can print all the participants for that booking item.
Super Add You are sent to a fresh basket, where you can't change any previously entered purchaser/participant details, and whatever is purchased is then attached to the original booking (these new participant details can be edited)

Bookings Status

Each booking has a booking status as defined below.

Name Description
Pending This is when a booking is being made - someone is adding items to a basket and billing page. The system auto-expires these bookings after a period of inactivity.
This is a status of a booking - this means that the booking is still pending and at this point the customer is on the hosted credit card form entering their details.

The system will automatically set this to expired once the booking session time has expired.
User exiting process during booking process
The same as complete but it is noted there was no payment. The customer still receives the Confirmation Email Messages.
Cancelled A booking that has been cancelled. Not rebookable by the customer.
The bookings in this state can be rebooked by the customer through the myaccount section. 
This means a booking can be made and combined onto another one. When this happens the pending booking becomes "combined" and the items/transactions get put onto the target booking.
