Navigating by dateBack to top
The Daily Manifest provides a table view of bookings daily. By default, bookings display for today. 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?!
You can also 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, you cannot view bookings based on a date range.
Filtering 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.
You can also filter for those bookings in progress or ending on the day viewed (ending on the date in focus).
Filtering by start timeBack to top
Bookings displayed can be further filtered by Time. This option limits the bookings displayed to those with a matching start time, considering any other category and item/product filters you may have applied.
Deleting the value in the time field clears any time criteria applied and returns the filter to the default value.
Filtering by categoryBack to top
Clicking Select under the category label opens a dropdown 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 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!
Filtering by item/productBack to top
You can filter the Daily Manifest for one or more items/products. Click Select under the item/product label to open the item/product dropdown menu and the list of available inventory items/products displays.
This filter can be used together with the category filter. If one or more categories are selected, then the item/product list is restricted to those available for the selected category or categories.
As with the Category filter, you can type in the name of the item/product you are looking for, and the list is then limited to those items/products that match your entry. This is a useful option for those who have long lists of inventory!
Filtering by statusBack to top
You can filter the Daily Manifest by one or more statuses (Deposit, Paid, Canceled...). The bookings displayed are then filtered to match your selections.
Searching for the status is a quick option if 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.
Filtering 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 options: Including cancelled bookingsBack to top
By default, Cancelled bookings are included within the Daily Manifest, so that you and your Staff have a true picture of what the day entails. Don't need to view Cancelled bookings? Simply open the More menu and choose to hide Cancelled bookings from view!
If assigning assets in the Daily Manifest when using products, another available menu option is to hide Completed assignments.
Expanding & collapsing bookingsBack to top
There are two ways to expand or collapse the bookings to reveal or hide the Guest List. The booking rows are collapsed by default, and Guest List is hidden.
To the far right of the time, category, and item/product filters is an option to Expand or Collapse all rows.
You can also expand or collapse a listing separately by clicking on the down arrow (v) to the left of the Booking Code.
Sharing or bookmarking the Daily Manifest URLBack to top

Clicking on the link brings you to the Daily Manifest with any date, start time, category, item/product, status, search, and Canceled bookings filters applied.
