Report overviewBack to top
The Booking Volume report is a snapshot of monthly bookings, quantity sold, and monetary totals for the past 12 months (default). The amounts shown are a summary of the booking costs and do not include any transaction data (monies received).
✘ The Booking Volume report does not include Cancellations, Void bookings, and Pre-Bookings.
✘ The Booking Volume report does not include Imported Bookings.
✓ The Booking Volume report does factor in Booking Discounts applied.
The Booking Volume report might not line up with the Booking Sales report as the Booking Sales report includes Imported bookings and excludes Discounts.
