This opens a side panel. The following information and options are displayed at the top of the side panel to help you understand which inventory is in focus.
Date in focus
|This is the date/time interval in focus. This is the day you opened from the Inventory Calendar, for example, 07/31/22.
|This is the name of the item/product in focus—for example, Walking Tour with a Taste of London.
This is the allocation type for the item/product in focus - per day/all day, per night/nightly, per time/flex time, or per timeslot.

This is the number of bookings vs. the number booked (people, spots, inventory) for the period in focus. The number of Guests is listed in brackets.
You can create a booking anytime from the side panel by clicking the New Booking button.
