Navigate by DateBack to top
The Booking Calendar provides a calendar view by Month, Week, or Day. By default, bookings for Today display. You can jump back (<<) and forward (>>) to past and future dates. Click Today to return to view Today's bookings at any time!
Alternatively, you can choose a specific date by selecting the date from the calendar or entering the date directly into the field provided with the format required dependent on whether you are viewing by Month, Week, or Day.
Filter by CategoryBack to top
Clicking on the arrow next to the Search... field under the Category label opens a drop-down menu of available inventory Categories.
Select one or more Categories from the list to filter out bookings by Category, leaving only those from your chosen Categories.
If you have a long list of Categories, then simply start entering the name of the Category within the Search... field and the list is limited to those that start with the same letters. From there, you can easily select the Category!
Filter by Item or ProductBack to top
You can also filter the Booking Calendar for bookings with select Items or Products. Simply click on the arrow next to the Item or Product label to open the Item or Product dropdown menu and the list of available inventory Items or Products display.
This filter can be used independently or in tandem with the Category filter. If one or more Categories are selected, then the Item or Product list is restricted to those available for the selected Category or Categories.
As with the Category filter, you can also type in the name of the Item or Product you are looking for in the Search... field and the list is limited to those Items or Products that match your entry. This is a convenient option for those who have long lists of inventory!
Filter by StatusBack to top
Optionally, you can filter the Booking Calendar by one or more Statuses (Deposit, Paid, Canceled...). The bookings displayed are then filtered accordingly.
Searching for the Status is a quick option if you are faced with a long list of filter options! Simply start entering the name of the Status in the Search... field at the top of the list.
