This guide will demonstrate three methods that can be used to allow multiple related clients to share a booking. This type of booking is different from a group session with multiple registrants.
Examples of Shared Bookings
1. Couple sessions such as massage or tennis
2. Group Activities where multiple members of a single party book an event, such as tennis doubles or a group booking a lane in a gun club.
3. Coaches booking a team activity. (This is different from a rental as each participant should be booked into the activity, but payment is made by the coach)
4. A trainer inviting one or more participants to attend a session.
Multi-Client Booking - Combined Cost
In this example, two people plan to book a session together. Using this method requires that the total number of allowed participants be set to 1 and the cost of the session covers the cost for both participants. Setting the package to automatically share with a spouse will allow either couple to book into the session. The package can also be shared after the sale of the package.
*** Trainer Tip - Because the cost of the session is for two people, only one session needs to be subtracted.
Set the Self-Service settings with the matching allowed package type.
***Trainer Tip: Use the Reservation Type's Self-Service settings (the wrench icon) Online Description section to provide booking and payment details for the user.
The description will be visible when a client selects the session on self-service.
The user would be prompted to purchase the correct package to complete the booking.
Once the client selects the BUY button, the payment can be completed and the client is automatically booked into the desired session. The client will be taken to their own schedule page (My Schedule) to see the session added to the calendar.
