Equipment: Adjust a category's booking start times (i.e. availability grid time slots)

In this article

For each equipment category that is set to use an Hourly Bookable Type, you can choose whether booking start times occur every 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, or 4 hours. 

For example, if you select 15 minutes, a user could book an item starting at 9:00am, 9:15am, 9:30am, etc. If you select 1 hour, then a user could only book an item starting at 9:00am, 10:00am, etc.

Visually, this will affect the size of the time slots on the booking availability grid. For example, 1-hour slots will appear wider than 15-minute slots.

To customize the start times for your category:

  1. Go to Admin > Spaces & Equipment.
Selecting Equipment & Spaces from the Admin menu
  1. Under the Locations tab, find the location containing the category you want to move and click on its link in the Spaces column.
Clicking on a location's link in the Equipment column
  1. Under the Equipment & Categories tab, click on your category's Cog () button and select Edit Category from the dropdown.
Clicking a category's Edit Category button
  1. Click on the Booking Limits tab.
  2. From the Booking Start times available every X mins dropdown, select how long each time slot should be.
    • For example, if you select 30 minutes, then bookings can start every half hour.
    • This in turn makes each individual time slot on your booking grid 30 minutes long.
  3. Click the Save button.
