The "Disable back-to-back bookings" feature allows you to prevent members from creating bookings that don’t have any time between the end of one and the start of the other. This covers scenarios in which meeting rooms need to be prepared for a given booking or need to be serviced after a booking ends.
Disabling Back-to-Back Bookings
The feature is built into the Booking Policies. More on Booking Policies can be found here. Here’s what the Booking Policy dialog looks like:
To disable back-to-back bookings you need to check the “Disallow back-to-back bookings” and define the minimum amount of time that will be reserved before a booking to which the policy applies. The reserved slot will appear on the calendar as shown below:
NOTE: The maximum booking preparation time slot is 30 minutes
Admins will be able to override the booking policy back-to-back settings when creating a booking from the admin portal.
Members will not be able to override the preparation time policy when making bookings. They will be able to see the preparation slots for existing bookings.
