Facilities & Reservations Overview
Facilities are organized by Categories, Individual Facilities, and Sub-Facilities. Each can have their own calendar that you can allow the public to add events to individual calendars on the front side of your website.
Amenities are called Features, and your features can be completely customized, including to have a fee with taxes associated with them.
If you use the ePayment module, we can take the fee feature straight through to payment and booking.
You can still search the Facilities module by facility type or amenities. Each facility listing can have a customized reservation form that uses Form Center form fields, its own calendar with options for different types of reservations, separate hours of operations, contact information, and an updated Slideshow Manager.
The Facilities module will also work with the Calendar module so when you select a facility for your own events, it will automatically populate the facility address.
We have made it easy to tie into ESRI maps for better map management.
