Resource Bookings - Categories

Resources need to be classified into categories, so these will need to be set up first.

Creating a new category

New bookings categories are created within the Bookings Config section of Administration. Click on the Categories tab, then click [Create a new Category].

You will be prompted to enter a title and description for the category, as well as specifying which timetable structure you would like to use (including custom timetables). All resources in this category will use this timetable structure.

Creating a category

Click [Create this new Category] to complete the process.

Note: A category cannot be modified to another timetable template once already attached to a timetable, as this will compromise all bookings made due to incompatible time structures.

Viewing and modifying bookings categories

To view and modify an existing category’s details, click on the Categories tab, locate the category in the list, then click on its title.

The resulting pop-up window will display the category’s current title and description, assigned timetable structure and if any security restrictions have been applied (i.e. allowing only certain groups to view/book items in this category).

To establish security restrictions, click on the ‘Enabled’ checkbox. In the resulting expanded window that appears, choose the groups to restrict access to (for both editing and viewing) and click [Add Group] appropriately.

Assigned groups can be deleted by clicking the Trash icon beside the group name.

Click [Update this Category] to save any edits made.

Editing a category

Deleting a bookings category

To delete an existing bookings category, locate the relevant category on the Categories tab.

Once located, hover over the category title and click the Trash icon to the right. This will delete the entire category and all resources stored within it.

Warning: Deletion of categories is non-reversible, and can only be undone through restoring the entire Ultranet application to a previous backup (if available). Therefore, please use this function with caution.
