Creating a new closure event
To create a new Closure Event, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Availability tab of the Product Builder (Inventory > Products).
- Find the Availability Events section.
- Select Closure from the Create New drop-down menu. This opens the Create a Product Closure modal.
- Specify a unique Event Name. For example, Fall Maintenance. Rate names have a 13-character limit.
- Select the Date Range. Start by typing into the field to open the calendar selection tool. From the calendar, select the Start Date and then the End Date of your event, e.g. 10/01/22 -> 10/31/22.
- Choose which Days of the Week apply to the event, e.g. Monday (M), Tuesday (T), Wednesday (W), Thursday (T) and Friday (F). Days that are highlighted in blue are closed. Days that are greyed out are AVAILABLE for booking.
- Save your changes. The closure event is now active and appears within your Availability Events list.
Editing a product closure may impact other products that share that closure event, for example, if you modify the dates.
Product closures can be shared by more than one product. You can also manage product closures from the Product Closures list (Inventory > Product Closures), including determining which products the closures apply to. Learn more here...
