Viewing the availability for an item


Overview

The Extra Item availability report shows the availability of Extra Items for a location over a date range. 


Viewing the availability for an item

To view the availability for an item firstly navigate to the Extra Items Availability page (Reservations > Extra Items Availability). You may also get to the Extra Items Availability page from the Extra Items Report (Reports > Extra Items Report > Extra Item Availability).


On the Extra Items Availability page select the location, item and date range and click View to see the item’s availability (see Fig. 1).

Note: The date selected will show the availability from the current date until the selected date. 


This will generate a table which shows the daily availability for the selected item at the selected location. The table will show how many of the items are available, how many items are being picked up on each day and how many items are being dropped off each day (see Fig. 2).

The number of items available for a date is calculated using the following method: 

yesterday’s available + yesterday’s drop offs - today’s pick ups

Due to the way the number of items available is calculated it is important that bookings with Extra Items have the correct status (e.g. hired, returned and cancelled). Note that the Extra Items Availability report includes unallocated bookings also.
