If you wish to stop taking bookings follow these steps from the Admin menu:
- Click Settings > General Settings > System > Main
- Tick No Bookings Allowed
- Enter your rational for this in the No Bookings Message content box
- Click Save and close
From a customer's perspective your products will still have a Book Now button showing against them, however, when the button is clicked it will display the No Bookings Message content instead of taking them into the booking journey. When you're ready to take bookings again, untick No Bookings Allowed and all relevant products and existing events will become available again.
Additionally, should you still wish to make Admin bookings while customers can't, tick Allow Admin Bookings
