Spaces: Require a certain amount of time between back to back bookings

In this article

Within a space category's booking limits, you can adjust the Back to Back Booking Limit option to require a certain amount of time between back to back bookings, as well as to prevent simultaneous bookings by the same patron.

To customize this setting for a category:

  1. Go to Admin > Spaces & Equipment.
  2. Under the Locations tab, find the location containing the category you want to edit and click on its link in the Spaces column.
Selecting Equipment & Spaces from the Admin menu
  1. Click the Edit Space () icon for the space that you want to move.
Clicking the edit space icon
  1. Click on the Booking Limits tab.
  2. Use the Back to Back Booking Limit options to configure this restriction.
    1. In the Hours Between Bookings field, enter how many hours must elapse between the end of one booking and the start of another.
      • For example, if you enter a value of 4 and a patron's booking ends at 1pm, their next booking could start no earlier than 5pm that day.
      • If you want to prevent simultaneous (or overlapping) bookings by a patron, enter -1 in the field.
    2. Use the dropdown to select a scope for applying the limit.
      • In this category: the limit will only be based upon the duration of bookings made only in this category.
      • In this location: the limit will be based upon the duration of all bookings made in this category's location.
      • Across all locations: this limit will be based upon the duration of all bookings made in all locations.
  3. Click the Save button.
