To access the booking rules settings for your venue:
Click on the 'Court Booking' module along the left-hand side of the admin page, then click on 'Settings'.
Select 'Manage basic settings'.
Scroll down until you reach the 'Court booking rules' section.
Court Booking Rules allow you to decide:
- How far in advance a court booking can be made ("Advanced court booking period (days)")
- How many court bookings a player can make ("Max court bookings during period")
- Within a given time period (“Max court bookings period (days)")
- How long the player will be on court ("Max court booking slots per court booking")
Looking at the example below for 'Everyone':
The player can book up to 7 days in advance of the date they would like to play.
The maximum court bookings a user can make in any given period is 1 and the maximum court booking period is set to1 days. With all of these rules in place, the user is restricted to 1 court bookings once a day with a maximum duration of 120 minutes (4x 30 minute slots) and minimum of 1 hour (2 x 30 minutes)
For other roles or responsibilities and membership packages, you can set different rules, for example if you want to allow the coach to be able to book up to a year in advance, you can set this as 365 days.
He can reserve a court up to a year in advance, can book up to 4 courts in one go in a year period with a maximum duration of 6 hours. (12 x 30 minute slots) and minimum of 2.
You can add as many rows (rules) as you wish, you can set this by membership package or all members depending on how your facility works.
Remember to press save after in putting your rules.
You can view your booking sheet online by clicking the button on the top right hand side.
