Manage your flow of enquiries

If you don’t want to take function enquiries for the current week, you can now set this up in the diary. You can also allow enquiries to be made when you are closed or have no availability, allowing you to make decisions on bookings that are best for your business. Enquiries can also be filtered into “created,” “accepted” or “cancelled” making it easier to see exactly what is going on.

Supervise your cancellations

Cancellation reasons and cancelled booking types can also be viewed more clearly with our overhaul of the cancellation functionality. You can now apply cancellation reasons on internal and online bookings and separate reasons for W8List and function enquiries. This gives clearer reporting and better filter options on cancelled booking types. The reports will also allow you to see if the cancelled bookings had deposits attached or card details stored.

Control W8List booking duration

This will let you squeeze W8List bookings into shorter durations than normal, allowing you to maximise covers. The table will slot in and you will have the ability to accept, seat and manage it like a normal booking.
