Reservations Calendar in Booking Application

reservations calendar

One of the main parts/features of every booking software is its reservations calendar. It shows you all properties and associated reservations for a specific period in time.

Every booking solution has its own opinion on how reservations calendar should look, work and be used. Depending on your needs some solutions will work better for you than the others.

Here is how we at Constructive Code think reservations calendar should work and how we implemented those ideas into VELUMrent.

The basics

Reservations calendar should be able to show you multiple properties and their reservations all at the same time. It shouldn’t take you more than a look at it to see where you have openings for new reservations and which properties are already booked.

Like other quality booking solutions we also use a grid compiled of rows and columns which represent dates and properties. This way you can easily spot “holes” on the grid and  see  which properties and when are available.

Time navigation is controlled by two calendars in the sidebar and with several time filters. Combining those two options with big resolution screens you can instantly see availability of all your properties for the whole season. That is more than two months of reservations data available at your fingertips with a glimps of an eye.

This really is the best way you could check and view your properties availability and see how your booking process progresses over time.

Reservations calendar – the center of every booking process

What we done differently with our reservations calendar is that we made it interactive (instead of just leaving it be a visual representation of all reservations) and made it the central place for all booking operations.

Other booking applications take you away from reservations calendar if you need to add, modify or delete reservation. Unlike them, VELUMrent understands that reservations are all that maters to your business and never takes you away from them.

Need to move reservation to a different property or change it’s starting date? Simple drag and drop it on a new location or to a new date on reservations calendar.
Need to make a quick reservation? Just click on the empty space on reservations calendar and VELUMrent will fill out the dates and select the property for you. No need to double your steps for a simple task like this one.

What ever you need to do and which ever information you need to access you can do it directly on reservations calendar. And because of this approach everything can be accomplished in fewer steps than usual and with bigger time savings on your side

This blog post covered just some basics behind the reservations calendar. We will go into more depth about its features and how they can save you time and money in one of our future blog posts.
