Included in Rentle Grow & Advanced
To sell in person and create manual bookings, make sure you have either Rentle Grow or Advanced plan: Rentle pricing plans
Creating reservations in the admin is a feature you need to process booking inquiries coming through email and phone. You can create reservations completely from start to end or just prepare a reservation and send a reservation to your customer so they can fill in all the necessary details. In this article, we focus on the first scenario.
Creating a reservation
From your Rentle admin, go to the Create booking view
The default state is Book now, which means that the start time is default to the current moment of time. In this case, you have to switch to Reserve, if you want to set the start time to be later.
Add the persons and choose the products you want to reserve.
Choose the duration of the rental either by using the duration selector or by choosing the start and end date manually.
Note! Duration is based on the periods you have defined in your pricing tables. You can override your predefined duration by using the date pickers.
Apply discounts from the %-icon if necessary.
Save the reservation by clicking Save booking. You are asked to fill in the contact details of the customer but you can edit the information later from the Bookings page.
- The reservation will now appear on the Bookings page and is ready to be processed and fulfilled when the time comes.
- Processing the booking is done just like any other booking.
That's it. That's how to create reservations. Here's how to create orders instantly.
