The reservation calendar is the primary interface for browsing, creating, editing and canceling reservations. The calendar interface has two components: 1) the day picker, 2) the day view
Enable calendar features using the Server Settings / Calendar menu. You may specify:
- Detailed Reservations - include reservation comments on the calendar bar (good for small number of resources)
- Row Height (new calendar only) - specify the default height of the calendar row. Content that cannot be displayed within the calendar row will appear with scroll bars.
- New Calendar - enable the new calendar features. This setting is in place to provide backward compatibility with Internet Explorer 11.
The calendar features show here are new as of November, 2018 and require a modern browser version: Chrome,
Firefox, Safari, MS Edge. Internet Explorer 11 is not supported. If you and your customers are using IE11 or older, disable the new calendar setting.
Viewing a Day
Click a day in the day picker to focus the calendar on the selected day.
The calendar may scroll if the screen width is not sufficient to view the entire day. Click/drag or touch swipe to scroll the calendar into view.
Overnight reservations may not be moved or edited using the mouse.
Creating a Reservation
Click in the grid to initiate a reservation on the selected bookable at the selected time. The default duration of the reservation will be 2 hours, and may be adjusted on the New Reservation form. The time under the mouse cursor will be displayed as the mouse is moved inside the calendar grid.
Viewing Reservation Details
Click on a calendar event to view the reservation details.
Editing a Reservation
From the details popup, click "edit" to edit the reservation.
Calendar Based Editing
The calendar will allow drag and drop editing of the reservation start time and duration. This feature is only available on PC / mouse based devices.
The maintenance and squawk status for the aircraft is represented by a red, yellow, green icon next to the resource. Click the icon to review the maintenance status.
Out of Service Depiction
Out of service events will be depicted with a faded background.
If the out of service event supersedes a reservation, both events will be depicted with a red dashed border, and made transparent to provide visibility of the overlapping condition.
The collision depiction will not be displayed when reservations overlap a Free/Busy availability block.
