The dashboard is the main area of the plugin after you’ve set it up. You can view, edit, add, approve, reject and mail your reservations through it. The first area of it is the Overview that displays the schedule of your business.
In its header is the administration bar, the navigation and the calendar. With the calendar icon left of the time span you can easily select the start date of the overview. On the left side you can switch between daily and hourly view and select how many days or hours should be shown. In the bar underneath is a navigation to change the time shown and the calendar. If you click on the dates of the calendar the table will show reservations of that day.
The next area is the main part to display your reservations. If you click on the resources name it will redirect you to its setting page. The background of the cells is representing blue for today, yellow for weekend, red for unavailability filters and grayed out for past. The overview show only approved reservations that are colored by their status related to today. Clicking on empty days will lead you to add a new reservation while you can use it to change the arrival and departure when editing a reservation.
The table is very flexible to only show important reservations while still giving easy access to the others. The reservations get divided into groups which you can change left above the table. Upcoming means status approved and present or future. Current means status approved and present. Pending means status pending and present or future. Rejected means status rejected and present or future. All has no limitations. Old means status approved and in past. Trash is for trashed ones and the star marks favorite ones. The favorites get saved individually per administrator.
As next you can filter the reservations by status, month and resource and define the amount of results to display. The reset button on the right is to clear the inputs. The first field is to limit the results by a date and the next one is the search field. It can search for ID, name, email, resource name or custom field title or value.
The table can get sorted by date, name, reservation time, status, persons and resource. The results are very configurable in the dashboards screen settings and can display almost any information’s of the reservation. The colored counts beside the date fields are the days from now till arrival and departure and are colored as the in the overview. They’re to know how long till a reservation without calculating.
Directly under the table there’re the bulk options move to trash and delete permanently as well as the pagination. Under it are two statics, the first is for upcoming reservations in the next it and the second for the amount of new reservations in the last days. Beside them is a little table showing the arrivals and departures today.
Approve and reject
New reservations will have the initial status pending. You’ll have to choose if you want to approve or reject the reservation. The guest will get a different email on your choice. Approved reservations are accepted ones and will be shown in the overview, in the table group upcoming and are calculated into the statistics if installed. Rejected reservations won’t be recognized by the system anymore, except for the tables groups rejected and all.
In the premium version is a function to approve reservations automatically.
On the right top of the dashboard is a button called screen settings. After clicking on it you’ll be able to configure the dashboard as of your preferences. You can disable any feature of the dashboard, configure which information’s the table displays, define which resources gets shown in the overview, disable a few effects and set the hourly mode to standard.
