Booking StatusBack to top
Booking statuses enable you to adjust exactly where an invoice is in the booking process.
Sometimes, an invoice may be in a pending state without any payments applied. The Customer may then make a partial payment on that invoice or even pay it in full.
Either way, it's important for you as a business owner to know which Customers owe you money and which Customers maybe need a follow-up notification sent out.
The current status of an invoice is indicated by a brightly coloured label in the top left corner of the document, as seen in the image above.
You can click on this label and open a dropdown menu in order to change the status of the booking.
Pre-bookings and Void Bookings
Customer data from pre-bookings and void bookings are held in the system for up to 30 days. This provides you with an opportunity to reconcile your reports and our Support team to better troubleshoot missing payments, etc.
Do you have email notifications tied to a booking status? Changing the status triggers the notification and sends an email to the configured recipient(s).
If you don't wish to trigger a notification, then click on the new status from the dropdown menu and uncheck the Send email notifications field from the resulting pop-up window.
