When you go to settings > areas, you'll see a full list if your areas that have already been created and you quickly check that the correct areas are available for online bookings;
To create a new area, please follow the below steps;
1. go to settings > table management > areas > create new.
2. Give your area a name and description as well as a maximum cover count (ie, if you were to have one exclusive booking in this area, what is the maximum party size you could accommodate).
3. Ensure your area is set to send emails to customers so guests receive their confirmation emails, do the same for SMS if you have this add on feature.
A. Ensure the area is available for online bookings if desired.
B. Ensure the area is set to be included in the availability search ie. the area, and its tables will show up as options when making a booking internally.
C. Ensure the area is set to be included in your booking calculations. This means any bookings within this area will be calculated so you will can not exceed your maximum covers rules and restrictions in your diary. An example of this not being selected would be a drinks area where you wish to avoid bookings there adding into your restaurant covers count.
D. Select if you wish events bookings to be made in this area (Events add on must be enabled for this. For Events click here)
