Editing an existing segment allows you to use a segment already created by adding additional dates or date ranges.
Table Management - How to extend an existing segment
As segments are built using dates this means before editing an existing segment you must edit the current segment and remove the date or date range as they cannot be placed on top of each other.
For example, if you want to edit the segment for Valentine's day and add 14/02/2023 to it but your normal operations segment runs from 15/02/2022 to 31/12/2037 therefore we need to edit the normal operations date range and remove 14/02/2023.
Top Tip: Have a pen and paper handy to write down the dates you are adding and removing!
To do this go to settings - table management - segments - edit normal operations:
- Write down the last date range added to normal operations then delete it from the diary
- Add back in the start date you wrote down and add the end date as the day before your new segment starts, press add date range
- Add another date range starting from the date after your new segments ends and add the end date as the until date you wrote down, press add range
Using Valentine's day 2023 as an example, the normal operations segment dates would be:
17/12/2017 to 13/02/2022
15/02/2022 to 13/02/2023
15/02/2023 to 31/12/2037
To edit the existing segment go to settings - table management - segments - edit the segment you want add a date range to:
- Enter the start and end date of your new segment (if this was Valentine's day it would be 14/02/2023 - 14/02/2023)
- Press add date range
Top Tip - All dates shoud be included in a segment. If a diary is accidentally omitted from your segments, the diary will not load.
Please note: Editing a segment will cause existing bookings made on that date or date range to go unallocated, you may want to allocate the booking straight away or wait until you have made the necessary adjustments to the segment set-up. To reallocate the booking go to the date/date range and re-allocate the bookings.
