Spaces: Set how far in advance spaces in a category must be booked (i.e. booking lead time)

In this article

For each space category, you can choose how far in advance spaces must be booked (aka the Booking Lead Time). For example, if you select a lead time of 48 hours, then a patron would have until 1 pm on September 1 to book a space at 1 pm on September 3.


To customize the booking lead time for your category:

  1. Go to Admin > Spaces & Equipment.
  2. Under the Locations tab, find the location containing the category you want to move and click on its link in the Spaces column.
Selecting Equipment & Spaces from the Admin menu
  1. Select Edit Category from the cog () button in the category's heading.
Clicking a category's edit Category button
  1. Click on the Booking Limits tab.
  2. From the Booking Lead Time dropdown, select how far in advance spaces must be booked.
    • If you do not want to require any lead time, select Before Slot Ends. This will allow booking slots to remain available until their ending time.
    • For example, if a 60-minute slot begins at 2 pm, a user could still book that space at 1:30 pm. If you had selected a lead time of Before Slot Begins, on the other hand, that user would be unable to book that space until 2 pm (when the next slot begins).
  3. Click the Save button.
