Booking Calendar Events Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a booking, an event and a group meeting?

It’s possible to use the three in tandem.

What happens if a regular booking is made at the same time as an event or group meeting?

In this case the Event booking takes priority over the group meeting and regular booking. The priority is event > group meeting > regular booking. So the event booking will appear in the front-end.

To learn more about this see this Help article.

What happens to the events I've created if I disable the add-on?

If you disable the add-on then the events will not be shown. However, they won’t be deleted – once you reactivate the add-on, they will be available again.

What happens when the maximum number of places have been taken for the Event?

When this happens the appointment will change to show “Booked” in the calendar front-end view, to inform people that it’s no longer available.

To learn more about this see this Help article.

Can this plugin work as a way to sell seats for events with limited places? Like concerts and gigs?

Yes. In this case you should probably take a look at the Booking Payment add-on as well. It allows you to use Easy Digital Downloads or WooCommerce to take payments from customers for Bookings.

To learn more about Booking Payments see the Product Page.

Can I isolate events from regular bookings in the admin panel view?

By default they’re separate in the WordPress Dashboard. Bookings and Events have separate areas.

Booking events - Options view

Is it possible to set a different color in the front-end calendar for Events?

Certainly. This can be done through the Appearance Tab within the Plugin Settings ( Appointments Booking Pro → Options → Appearance).

To learn more about this see this Help article.
