Navigate by DateBack to top
The Daily Manifest provides a table view of bookings on a daily basis. By default, bookings for Today display. You can jump back (<<) and forward (>>) to dates with bookings or easily view the next day's bookings by clicking the Tomorrow button. Click Today to return to Today's booking view at any time. Who knew time travel is now possible?!
Alternatively, you can choose a specific date by selecting the date from the calendar or entering the date directly into the field provided.
As the Daily Manifest is a daily view of bookings, it is not possible to view bookings based on a date range.
Filter by BookingsBack to top
By default, the Daily Manifest displays bookings Starting on the date in focus. These are any offerings that start on the day being viewed.
Alternatively, you can filter for those bookings In Progress or ending on the day being viewed (Ending on the date in focus).
Filter by Start TimeBack to top
Bookings displayed can be further filtered by Time. Selecting this option limits the bookings displayed to those with a matching Start Time, taking into consideration any other Category and Item or Product filters you may have applied.
Manually deleting the value in the Time field clears any Time criteria applied and returns the filter to the default value.
Filter by CategoryBack to top
Clicking on Select 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 from the other Categories, leaving a view of the items or products booked from your chosen Categories.
If you have a long list of Categories, then simply start entering the name of the Category and the list is then 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 Daily Manifest for one or more Items or Products. Simply click Select under the Item or Product label to open the Item or Product drop-down menu and the list of available inventory Items or Products displays.
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 and the list is then 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 Daily Manifest 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 input field at the top of the list.
Filter by SearchBack to top
Search bookings for the day being viewed. The following fields can be searched...
- Guest or Booker First Name
- Guest or Booker Last Name
- Guest or Booker Phone Number
- Guest or Booker Email
- Booking ID
- ...and custom fields!
More OptionsBack to top
By default, Canceled bookings are included within the Daily Manifest, so that you and your Staff have a true picture of what the day entails. Don't have a need to view Canceled bookings? Simply open the More menu and choose to Hide Canceled bookings from view!
Expand & Collapse BookingsBack to top
There are two ways to Expand or Collapse the bookings to reveal or hide the Guest List. By default, the booking rows are collapsed and Guest List hidden.
To the far right of the Time, Category, and Item or Product filters is an option to Expand or Collapse all rows.
Alternatively, you can Expand or Collapse a listing independently by clicking on the down arrow (v) to the left of the Booking Code.
Share or Bookmark URLBack to top
