How to Utilise Seasonal Bookings Management
Booking Live software is perfect for seasonal businesses as it comes loaded with a whole host of great automation tools. Running a seasonal business has never been so easy!
Switch Products On and Off
Rather than having to delete and recreate products at different times of the year, Booking Live enables businesses with the ability to simply turn them on or off.
If set as ‘On’ the products will be bookable and visible on your website, if set as ‘Off’ they won’t be bookable via your website.
Set Publish and Un-publish Dates and Times on Events
As well as being able to set up events with start dates and times and end dates and times, it is possible to schedule publish and un-publish date and times. This means that you can set events to automatically un-publish from your website on specific dates and at specific times. So if you are running boat tours which only take place during the summer months, when you are creating tour dates you can set them to stop being bookable at the end of the summer period.
Not only is this feature useful in terms of seasonal bookings management, but it is also useful for businesses who manage promotional events that only run for a certain length of time e.g. over the Christmas break. In this scenario users could simply set the event up so it is bookable between the dates of their choice e.g. December 1st and December 25th.
Seasonal Bookings Management Calendar
With Booking Live’s online booking software, businesses can get a quick overview of their bookable events on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. This makes it easier than ever to manage events which run throughout the year.
Dates which have scheduled events taking place are highlighted in yellow, so users can add, edit and remove any dates as they see fit quickly and efficiently.
