Calendar Collision is a smart detection feature to help you minimize double bookings. Calendar collision will disable your time slots shown to customers in cases where it recognizes potential conflicts.
Please note: This feature is currently is only available upon request.
Here's how it works with Google Calendar
- Say, January 1, 2017 at 10am to 11am your business calendar shows an available opening for your customers to book.
- However, your personal Google Calendar has you scheduled with a doctor's appointment.
- Occasion will disable January 1, 2017 at 10am to 11am time slot and not show it as available to your customers.
Here's how it works within your Occasion account
- Say you have two venues (or rooms) - Room 1 and Room 2
- In Room 1, you have two events - Event 1 scheduled for January 1 at 10am and Event 2 for January 1 at 10am. Similarly, in Room 2, you have two events - Event 3 scheduled for January 1 at 10am and Event 4 for January 1 at 10am.
- When a customer books Event 1, Event 2 happening in Room 1 will be blocked. However, Event 3 and Event 4 will remain open.
If you have listings in the same venue with overlapping time slots, the first of the overlapping time slots to be booked would be the only one that is allowed and all other overlapping time slots will then be disabled.
