ScheduleOnce 5.3 is live – Multiple bookings per slot

July 14, 2013 · 2 comments

Last week we announced version 5.2 with pooled availability and today we are already announcing version 5.3 with support for multiple bookings per slot. This feature is highly requested and allows you to specify the number of bookings that can be made before a time slot becomes unavailable.

Multiple bookings per slot can be useful in a wide range of scenarios such as classes, tours, group sessions and any activity in which more than one customer is served at the same time.

Multiple bookings per slot work with your calendar in real time and allow to you to control the number of bookings per slot in a wide range of scenarios. Any booking that you create in your main booking calendar (via ScheduleOnce or directly in your calendar) will be counted towards the defined capacity. In addition, if you want to take into account additional activities you can retrieve busy time from additional calendars and any conflicting activity will close the slot regardless of its capacity.

To learn more about this release please see the What’s new in 5.3 article.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback we would love to hear it. You can add a comment to this post, email us or schedule a time to speak with us.

We currently are scheduling 30 people to come between 8-noon. We try to emphazie that the time on the calendar is only a place holder not the actual appointment. As we want them to come at 8:00AM. I would like to increase our numbers to 40 and put them all into just one time slot (8:00AM) and then our staff will process them as they come into our office. My question is how can I make the change without interferring with the current bookings and put the new amount (40) on just one slot. Also can the increase be made starting with the 4th month out instead of the current month? We currently are booking 4 months out (had to choose 6 months and deny the last 2 months. If there is a way I can do this differently that would be great too. Thank You for any/all assistance.
Cindy :)

Hi Cindy,

Thanks for your note. You can make this change anytime and you do this from the Time slots subsection in the Booking section of the MeetMe page administration. If you want the change to apply from a certain month you should use 2 MeetMe pages – One for the first four months and the other for the rest. In this way you can have different settings for each MeetMe page.

If you need more help with this feel free to schedule a consultation on booknow.so/so

Best Regards,
Rami
