Spaces & Seats: Switch a location's public booking page between grid & period layouts

In this article

The public booking page is where patrons can browse and submit bookings for available spaces, seats, and equipment.

For space and seat bookings, availability times can be displayed in one of two layouts:

  • Flexible booking duration grid: this layout allows users to select a specific booking start time from a grid

  • Fixed, period-based bookings: this layout allows users to book pre-defined blocks of time

Please note:
  • Fixed, period-based bookings do not apply to the equipment bookings page. Equipment bookings will always use the flexible booking duration grid.
  • When a location is using fixed, period-based bookings, it is not possible to add custom hours for individual spaces. That option will not be available when managing a location's custom hours.
