Repeat bookings

In some instances a customer may wish to repeat the same booking over a period of time.
Before you access the Repeat bookings option, ensure you have completed all necessary booking requirements such as assigning subhirables, members, purchase items and roll calls.
Apart from the Booked for date value, all other aspects of the booking are applied to all repeated instances of the booking.
 
Once the repeat bookings have been created, they cannot be updated or removed as a group.
Any mistakes will require correction one booking at a time.
By default, the first date will be today’s date. Change the date range as required.
 
Select the applicable week day/s and week/s in the month and select the Determine dates option.
 
Add specified date. Specify any other date you wish.
 
Review the “Determined/calculated dates” list and select accordingly.
 
Add selected dates will add your selection to the “Final dates to repeat bookings” list.
Repeat this process until you are satisfied with the “Final dates to repeat bookings” list.
Example: You wish to create repeat bookings for the first Monday and second Wednesday over the repeat period.
Dates added to  the “Final dates to repeat bookings” list are automatically deselected in the “Determined/calculated dates” list.
 
Validate bookings. Before the bookings can be added (Add repeat bookings option is disabled until bookings are successfully validated), you must apply the Validate bookings option.
Booking dates that fail validation will be deselected automatically.
Repeat bookings that overlap each other in the current session are NOT allowed even if the Allow double/overlapping bookings setting is enabled.
You will be prompted if a double booking will occur with an existing booking even if the Allow double/overlapping bookings setting is enabled.
You may choose to ignore double bookings with existing bookings or to cancel which in turn will deselect any repeat bookings that overlap.
Repeat bookings that straddle a month-end are automatically deselected.
The same principles apply where subhirables are assigned to the repeat bookings.
 
Adding more dates after validating will require you to run the validation option again.
 
Add repeat bookings. Each booking is validated once again before being added.
If a booking fails a validation test it will be deselected in the “Final dates to repeat bookings” list.
