How to change booking cut-off time, allowable cancellation time and booking time frame
Booking cut-off time and allowable cancellation time can be configured to suit the merchant's needs.
Booking cut-off time - specify the time period before the booking time when you wish to stop accept online bookings. e.g. If set to 6 hours, customers won't be able to make a booking less than 6 hours beforehand.
Allowable cancellation time - specify the time period prior to the booking commencement time that customers are allowed to change or cancel their booking. e.g If set to 48 hours, customers can cancel their booking not less than 48 hours prior to the appointment.

How to block out certain dates
There are two options to blockout availability; the individual experience or the entire date.
There is no need to block out dates beyond the dd/mm 2023. The offers end date automatically blocks any bookings beyond this date.
If your business is fully booked, it is critical that you block out dates in advance to prevent bookings. This includes Public Holidays (eg. Good Friday)
To make blocking out dates more convenient, you can rename your resource to the name of the offer/experience type. For example; 'Table1' can be renamed to 'Lunch'.
To block out all promotions for a particular day:
In your calendar, under 'Staff & Resources' select 'All Resources' > Press ' Blockout' > Select the dates you wish to blockout (Red= Blocked out/ White = Available) > Update.
To block out a single promotion type:
In your calendar, under 'Staff & Resources' select the promotion you wish to blockout > Press 'Blockout' > Select the dates you wish to blockout (Red = Blocked out/ White = Available) > Update.
