You can now enable group bookings for your court booking sheet. If you would like your users to be able to book for themselves and also guests then you will need to activate this feature from within your court booking settings.
Please note: The group booking feature is only available for court bookings made on the website. If courts are booked via the booker app, guest fees and adding the participant are not available at present. We are hoping this will be available soon we have designed the feature on the app and are waiting for Apple to approve this. You are not able to turn off the ability to book via the booker app; so only enable if you are happy with this.
Group bookings are a great feature to enable your members to list who is playing with them. If your venue allows them to bring a guest you can also add guest fees.
Firstly, select the Booking Module from the Admin area. Then select 'Settings' and 'Manage basic settings'.
Now scroll down to 'Group booking' and turn the toggle on so it is blue.
Ensure that you scroll down and select the blue 'Save settings' button, do not exit your screen without doing this.
You can now update your court booking schedules for any group bookings. For more information on setting up your schedules, Click Here.
Select 'Manage schedules' from within your court booking settings.
Within your rule-set, there are now additional fields where you can enter the cost.
You can enter a cost for the user who is making the booking (member/non-member) then the guest fee will be for the additional player they add when making the booking. The member will be asked to pay for the guest.
In the example above:
Everyone - i.e. members of the public can book the court for £10 and have up to 4 people on the court.
All Members - can book the court for free but if they would like to invite a guest (non-member) it will be £5.
Coach - can book for free and have a capacity of 10 members on the court
You can also include a court cost for the booking and enter a maximum capacity for the reservation.
