To enable people management on the booking it’s necessary to activate Enable people option that you can find in the “Booking People” section of the product.
Set the minimum and maximum amount of people allowed for each booking. In case you don’t want to set a limit, enter “zero”.
If you want to show the types in a unique field in the booking form, you have to enable the option Enable People Selector in the Booking Form section.
To better manage your booking products, the plugin gives you the possibility to count every person as a different booking until the number of bookings per unit is reached. To do it, you need to enable the option Count people as separated bookings as shown below.
Once reached the unit configured, the product will be no longer bookable and a message will show to users to inform them of the maximum allowed number of people for the booking.
Let’s make an example:
we have created a Boat Tour available to 50 persons per day with a cost of $150 per day from Monday to Friday and $200 per day on Saturday and Sunday.
We set the Availability as follows:
We have activated Enable people option, set the Minimum number of people to 1, the Maximum number of people to 50 and checked the option Count people as separated bookings.
Now all the people booking the Boat Tour will be counted as separated bookings until the maximum number (50) will be reached. For additional bookings, the form will show a message as previously described.
To create and manage people types, go to the product edit page and enable the option “Enable people types” first then start configuring your types.
As an alternative, you can also create people types from the section “Bookings -> People” and click on “Add new type”.
Add the name of the person type (es. “Adults”).
In order to enable the person type management, activate“Enable types for people” which you will find in the product. This will enable all of the configured person types on the “booking” product selected.
You can edit the booking cost for each people type.
The order in which the people types are displayed can be edited with an easy drag-and-drop action.
All of the types are enabled on the product by default. If you wish to hide one or more, check the designated symbol.
