BookingLive: Online Booking System

Weekly Programme

Once a booking is confirmed, this module allows you to open that booking, assign activities and create a timetable which can be sent to the customer.

Note: the weekly programme should only be sent when a booking is confirmed.
All documentation, correspondence, quotes etc. between quote and confirmed is manual and outside of BookingLive.

Note: if you change anything within the confirmed booking eg numbers, it will revert back to "quote" status.
This is also applicable if the customer logs in and edits the enquiry.

Overview

To view the weekly plan go to Groups > Activity Assignment

Blue = A schedule (eg 10am, lunch, 2pm and night)
Green = A booking item

You can create schedules for a maximum number of participants or based on number of staff available for each activity.
Schedules should be done for duration of activities eg 10am - 11.30am.

Weekly Programme 

The weekly programme displays all schedules and the activities within those schedules.

Each activity displays (left to right): group name (as entered on the popup when an activity is dropped onto the schedule), number of people, activity name.

Note: there is some validation when assigning activities. Eg if the schedule has limited slots available, it wont allow you enter a larger number of people AND you cannot assign activities to dates outside of the date from and to that was on the enquiry/booking.
