Rule DefinitionsBack to top
Maximum duration per item
Sets the maximum allowed booking length for each allocation.
Minimum duration per item
Sets the minimum allowed booking length for each allocation.
Maximum booking quantity
Limits the number of items to be booked in a single order. By default, this is your item quantity.
Minimum booking quantity
Sets a minimum limit on the number of items that must be booked in a single order.
Start day of week
Limits bookings to commence on your chosen day of the week.
Bookings cannot be made after X number of days before the start date. Set to at least 1 if you don't wish to allow same day bookings. If using the _hourly_ allocation, a value of 24 would represent 1 day (24 hours)
Total quantity available for overbooking outside the posted availability. Not applicable to unlimited items.
Forward booking window
Number of days in the future to accept bookings. This will limit customers from booking too far ahead in the future (14 day as a value to this rule would mean that customers will not be able to book 15 days or more ahead of the current date).
Past booking window
Number of days in the past to accept bookings. Usually applied to staff members only.
Maximum value of a booking
Limits the maximum sub-total of an item.
Minimum value of a booking
Limits the minimum sub-total of an item.
Maximum items per booking
Limits the quantity of items in a single booking. It's important to realize that the Default ruleset will always be referred to first by the system. If you have multiple events, with different rule requirements, make sure you disable the Default rules and then create a new ruleset for each event.
"Strict" DefinitionBack to top
You may have noticed an option in the Apply To column for the Maximum Duration Per Item rule labelled Strict.
But what exactly happens when you activate this feature? Well, say you have a rental at $10/day with two discounts:
Discount A: 1-5 days, 25% off
Discount B: 6-10 days, 50% off With “strict” enabled on discount B, a 10-day booking would be discounted 50% each day. With “strict” disabled on discount B, a 10-day booking would be discounted 50% each day, in addition to an extra 25% discount on the first 5 days.
The 'strict' feature on the maximum duration per item rule has other functions aside from stacking overlapping price adjustments. Enabling 'strict' means that the event price will not apply to any dates if the max rule is broken. Without 'strict', the event will still apply to all dates under the max value.
