Creating booking types

Location: Settings > General > Booking types

Here is an example of a booking type letting the guest book a table outside (in the “Garden” room). In this case, we’ll also need a booking type for inside bookings – otherwise, guests can only book outside, since they must choose a booking type (if one or more booking types is set “Online”).

See the full field explanation below the picture.

Name: Booking type’s name.

Title: The title can be translated into different languages.

Description: A description can be added to the booking types. This can be done to give the guests information, menus, etc..

Image: Add a picture to the booking type. This can be seen on the booking page.

Min. guests: The lowest number of guests that can be booked online.

Max. guests: Maximum number of guests that can be booked online.

Duration: Duration of booking types. This duration overrules the default duration.

Min. Notice: With how short notice you can book online. N.B.: If you choose the lowest, the system has to be up to date with walk-ins.

Room: Here you can choose a room/location for the booking type. Bookings of this type will then only be allocated in this room.

Book without tables: Should bookings be associated with tables or not. If booking without tables, tables can be assigned manually afterward.

Payment: Here you can select a payment setup which has been set up in Settings > Guest payment.

Start date: Guests will be able to book from this date (date included).

End date: Guests will be able to book until this date (date included).

Active: If the box is green, the booking type can be selected for online bookings.

Color: Here you can choose a color for booking types to display in Booking’s calendar.

Weekdays: Here you can choose a seating per weekday. The seatings drop-down menu will appear only if one or more seatings are created in “Seatings”. You can also choose the maximum number of guests in the restaurant for that booking type. It is possible to select “Allow online booking” for each weekday if you only want to receive online bookings for this booking type on specific days.
