ARTSVP is designed to make it easy for our clients to set up flexible booking pages, keep track of visitors and manage numbers.
Understanding how ARTSVP differs from a traditional ticket system helps make sure you set up a page that can deliver the best results.
ARTSVP calculates availability in realtime. This means that each time a booking is made cancelled or updated we recalculate the availability of all affected time slots.
Changing availability does not impact existing bookings
It's easy to change availability settings without worrying about affecting existing bookings. When you make these changes ARTSVP recalculates the availability per time slot based on the existing number of bookings taking place at any one time.
If for example you reduced the capacity from 10 to 4 any slots that already had 4 or more bookings will now appear full to future visitors wanting to book. Crucially though no existing bookings will be deleted or lost.
Changing frequency of future bookings
You can change the frequency of bookings without affecting any previously mad bookings. ARTSVP automatically calculates the availability of these now booking slots based on the duration and quantity of pre-existing bookings.
For example if you previous allowed booking every 60 mins with a booking duration also of 60mins but then reduced the frequency of future bookings to every 30mins the new slots take into account hat the old bookings would impact the availability on 2 (or more) booking slots now.
Changing duration of future bookings
Similarly to changing the frequency of bookings you can change the duration of future bookings.
If you change the duration to be more than the frequency of bookings then these new bookings will affect the availability of multiple booking slots.
Use capacity or number of bookings to block out slots
In addition to showing slots as full once they have had a certain number of tickets issued you can also block out slots based on the number of bookings.
This is useful in the case where you may have a capacity of 10 but only ever want 4 groups. So even if you had 4 bookings of 1 person the slot would appear booked out.
Maximum capacity: The total number of people allowed to be booked at a single time. (bookings can contain multiple people)
Maximum bookings: Unrelated to the size of a booking you can block slots based on the number of individual bookings happening at any given time
