Booking Permissions Outside Business Hours for Active And Non-active Members

Introduction

Many flex spaces offer access to bookable resources to Non-active members only during business hours when a front-desk receptionist is there to host them. Meanwhile, Active members can book and access the resources 24/7.

As admins need to be able to forbid Non-active members from booking outside business hours in the OfficeRnD Public Calendar, we expanded the Business hour bookings setting with more granular options.

Restrict Outside Business Hours Bookings Setting

When the Restrict Outside Business Hours Bookings setting (found in Settings/Platform Modules/Calendar & Bookings) is selected, Admins now have two additional options:

  • Active members - Forbid outside business hours bookings only for Active members.
  • Non-active members - Forbid outside business hours bookings only for Non-active members.

Active and Non-active member statuses are explained here.

There are four possible configurations, explained below.

Possible Configurations & Behaviors

This section explains the four possible configurations and resulting behaviors for bookings:

  1. Both Active & Non-active members can book 24h
  2. Both Active & Non-active members cannot book outside business hours
  3. Only Non-active members cannot book outside business hours
  4. Only Active members cannot book outside business hours
  • These settings apply only to resources and calendars that are bookable by time.
  • When Business Hours Bookings is checked, both the Active Members and Non-active Members checkboxes will be checked. You can still un-check them if needed.
