Assigning assets by quantity vs capacityBack to top
With the Assign asset by setting, you can determine if your product is priced by each asset and private to each booking (Quantity) or priced per seat within the assets with the assets being shared across bookings (Capacity). Configured inventory numbers display for each.
Select Quantity or Capacity from the Assign assets by drop-down menu depending on the product offered.
This represents the base number of assets available. Priced per asset, these are private to each booking.
For example, a Guest can book one kayak for private use.
This represents the total capacity of the assets, considering how many seats or spaces the asset can support. Priced per seat, the assets are shared across bookings.
For example, a shuttle bus has a total capacity of 15 people. 15 different people can each book a seat on the bus for a public wine tour.
The inventory numbers displayed are read-only. Asset inventory can be managed from the Assets list (Inventory > Items > Assets).
