The Admin Calendar allows you to quickly and easily keep track of all your orders. You can view calendars for a day, week or month view. Events on the calendar are colour coded based on the status of the event.
The calendar has many features including:
- View and manage events
- View and manage orders and customers
- Manage waiting lists
- Check-in customers
- Send SMS and Email notifications
- Allocate resources
There are four views that can be used with the Admin Calendar:
The Day, Week and Month views all work int he same way, just with different timescales. You can see when events are running on the days as seen in the images below.
The Year view shows days that have events running (highlighted in yellow), and you can hover over the day to see a simple list of the events that are running on that day.
An event which lasts less than a day appear on the Day and Week Calendar views next to their corresponding Start and End times. Multi-Day Events that take place over consecutive days are displayed at the top of the views.
As you can see from the above images, events are shown with different colours and with various icons/info boxes on them.
|Grey Events||Events that have no bookings|
|Blue Events||Events that have Bookings|
|Green box in bottom-right of event||Booking information Available Spaces / Pending Orders / Event Capacity|
|Red box in bottom-right of event||Indicates that this event is below the Products "Minimum Attendance Level"|
|Yellow "S"||Indicates that there are Staff assigned to this Event|
|Blue "W"||Indicates that there are People on the Event's Waiting List|
As you can see from the images above, the Admin Calendar has a series of filters on the left-hand side of the screen. These filters can be used to quickly de-clutter the calendar, especially if you have a lot of events running on your system.
|Event Views||Filters events based on bookings|

|Per Order||Groups bookings by Order|
|Per Person||Groups bookings by Participant (note: This also displays the Participant name)|
