Periodic close outs



Add a recurring close-out

This is a close-out that happens regularly, either on specific days or at specific times. A recurring close out is prefect to use if you close for example on a Monday or you close the bar at lunchtime. 

How to create a recurring close out for days you are fully closed:

  • Mode - Periodic
  • From - start date of this change
  • Until - when this will stop happening (if a permanent change, put 3 years in the future)
  • Type - common (both online and internal)
  • Add time interval - make sure it covers the start and the end of your day

 

Close certain times on a regular basis

As above but make sure your days and dates match when you are open. 

 

Closed only in certain area(s)

Pay attention to Time Interval and the area.

N.B. Area's will we separated by segment.

If you have more than one area to block you will have to re-edit the close out.


 

Only online  

 By changing the Type to Online this will block only online bookings at this time. Internal bookings can still go in
