Configuring settings within the calendar tabBack to top
By default, the Calendar tab displays the Days Available setting (Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat, and/or Sun), which allows you to specify the days of the week that you accept bookings.
Customizing hours available
With the Customize Hours Available option selected, you can specify the exact times of the day you accept bookings.
Allowing time bookings to exceed one day
The Allow time bookings to exceed one day option allows bookings to exceed 1 day.
To do this, the end time of the first day should be set to 11:00 PM. This is when the last bookable time slot of the day begins. The following day's schedule should then start at midnight.
Allow multi-day bookings to span closed days/hours
Check this setting to allow multi-day bookings to span closed days.
This setting lets bookings through for a range of dates that may include an item/product closure, for example, from Friday to Monday, with Sunday being closed.
Setting which day starts the week
Specify which day of the week the calendar starts (Monday or Sunday) with the Start of Week setting.
Several factors further influence booking availability, including inventory levels and events. For more information, please see the following articles.
