Do Not Show Upcoming Items or ProductsBack to top
This is the default option if the Upcoming section is active. As long as this option is selected, no upcoming items/products are displayed to the Customer.
If a Customer clicks on a day in the calendar that doesn't have any items/products available for booking, they receive a message to confirm that.
Automatically Advance to the Next Available DateBack to top
When this feature is active, if a Customer searches for an item/product, then the booking calendar automatically opens at the next available date for that item/product. This saves the Customer the need to manually go through the calendar looking for availability.
This option is recommended for individually listed items, whether through a booking link or the Booking widgets.
List the Next Available Date for Each Item or ProductBack to top
Select this option if you would like your Customer to be shown items/products on their next available date. If left unchecked, the Customer is shown the current date or date selected, even if there is nothing available.
By default, this option shows upcoming items/products only on calendar days when nothing else is available. This option is recommended for listing multiple items/products at a time, as this shows the availability of each item/product and when they are next available.
As an alternative, upcoming items/products can be set to show when there are other items/products available by enabling the Show unavailable items/products or Show sold out items/products options.
Upcoming WindowBack to top
This option appears when List the next available date for each item/product is enabled. You can set how far in the future your calendar looks to show the next available date. This window can only go up to a maximum of 180 days.
