Add or remove periods of unavailability for resources

You can specify a single or repeating period when a resource is not available to book.

In this article:

Add a period of unavailability

  1. Browse to your bookings page.
  2. Go to Manage resources > Add period of unavailability:

    Manage resources menu

  3. Choose the resource in the Creating a period of unavailability for drop-down list:

    Create a period of unavailability

  4. Specify the date and time when the resource is unavailable using the From and To fields. The To date is not inclusive and therefore represents the earliest time the resource is bookable. For example, to make a resource unavailable between 9.00-12.00, set the start time as 9.00 and the end time as 12.00.
  5. Optionally, enter a Note to explain why the resource is unavailable. Visitors to your booking page see the note when they click on a period of unavailability.
  6. To repeat this period of unavailability, choose the recurrence from the Repeats drop-down list.

    Tip: when adding a long period of unavailability, say one month, rather than specifying a single month-long period with the From and To dates, it may be better to create a one-day period at the start of the month – and repeat it daily until the end of the month. You can then remove single days of unavailability as necessary in the future, without affecting the rest of the blocked-out unavailability.
  7. Once you've finished adding the details, select Mark as unavailable.
  8. When someone visits your bookings page, they cannot book the resource during the period you specified:

Remove a period of unavailability

  1. Browse to your bookings page.
  2. Hover over the period of unavailability, then select the delete button:

    Remove period of unavailability

  3. When a period has repeating instances, you see a Remove linked periods of unavailability checkbox in the confirmation pop-up window. To remove all repeating instances, as well as the current period, select the checkbox.
  4. In the confirmation pop-up window, select Remove unavailability.
