Creating and editing a recurring, multiple resource reservation

Creating a recurring, multiple resource reservation

A booking where multiple resources or spaces are booked as part a single reservation is called a multiple resource reservation.

While each resource is part of the original reservation, each can be edited separately from the others or the reservation as a whole can be opened and changed at one time. The advantage to doing a multiple resource reservation is that if you cancel it, all bookings for all resources are deleted at once. If you booked it as separate reservations, you would have to cancel each one separately.

To create a new multiple resource reservation:

  1. Create a new reservation following steps in Creating a multiple resource reservation.
  2. On the Reservation Details form, select the Recurrence check box.

  3. Select the appropriate tab. Enter the recurrence details, and click OK
  4. To update the reservation, click either
    • Copy Current Tab: Click this to copy all the reservation details of the current tab to all the other resources in this reservation.
    • Copy All Tabs: Click this to copy all the reservation detail tabs of the current resource to all other resources in this reservation.
  5. Click Save and Close
