Time Crosstable View & Option Table Generation
Posted May 22, 2020 in New releases, User guide
Guest session reservation has never been more intuitive thanks to idloom’s new crosstable view
Instead of presenting your categories and option as a list view (as shown on the left), you now also have the possibility to present that same information as a calendar/grid view:
To obtain such a result you would need to activate the following two checkboxes in “Registration Step 2: Event Categories & Options”:
- Time crosstable view (see additional settings)
Once they have been activated, you can proceed with the setup of your groups and options:
- Your groups will always be the title/purpose of the booking (the name of the cooking lessons in this instance).
- Your options on the other hand, will always be your timeslots. So, for each option, be sure to specify the date(s) and hour(s).
Once all has been created, it will be necessary to link each group to all available options. In the below example, our 9 groups will each need to be linked to our 10 options, so we will end up with a list of 90 options. To avoid having to encode the 80 missing options and having to attribute the groups manually to each of them, you can use the “Create options table” function, which finds itself at the bottom of your groups.
After having clicked on that feature you will notice that each group, such as “Asian Recipes – Beginner”, now finds itself attributed to each available option.
You can now modulate your quantities, prices, locations, etc. for each option.
Finally, you also have two additional features linked to the time crosstable view:
- Maximum number of authorized timeslots: allows you to limit the number of bookings made during a registration as seen (cfr. Right side of below image - limit is set at 3).
- Overlapping slots:
o Allow : You allow registrants to book overlapping slots
o Warn : You allow registrants to book overlapping slots but warn them with a popup message if an overlap is selected.
o Prevent : You don’t allow registrants to book overlapping slots. Once a timeslot has been selected, it is no longer available (cfr. Left side side of below image).
