Most Common FAQ:

Q: I do have a seasonal park, but still have extended stay seasonal and/or monthly guests. How can I prevent daily bookings when closed while still enabling long-term functionality (billing, meter reading, etc.)?

If your extended stay sites are defined in a Site Type, that Site Type can be omitted from this setup.

To further control the bookings for the extended stay sites, the recommendation would be to also use the Cannot be reserved online feature just for your extended stay Site Types using a Date Group of "2023 Off Season" to disable that date range from accepting online bookings.

Q: Can this feature be used to quickly disable new bookings during a special event or emergency?

This feature will prevent all new bookings (on the Consumer Site and Admin Site). You may consider using the Cannot be reserved online feature to halt new online bookings so you can focus on managing the Admin Site internally.
