How do I add a reservation form to social networks?
The “Link to the reservation form” is especially suitable for social networks, which redirects the guest to the reservation form.
More information about adding a reservation link to social networks can be found here.
How does the reservation process work?
The reservation form shows only the available times, according to the selected parameters.
*Available time: This is the start time of the reservation, when the business has a free table and the guest can make a reservation.
After selecting a time and filling in contact details, a reservation will be created. The guest knows immediately whether it is confirmed or must wait for its confirmation. Find out how to set up automatic booking confirmation here.
What are the options for customising the reservation form?
Custom colour settings
For the greatest possible individual settings, you can change the main and additional colour of the form on your website. You can match it with the colours of your business.
Option of a smoking/non-smoking table
The booking form offers a choice of smoking or non-smoking tables. All restaurants are automatically set as non-smoking one. If you want your guest to be able to choose a smoking table, contact your Restu manager.
How do I restrict or disable reservations from the reservation form?
If you need to restrict or completely disable the creation of reservations through the reservation form, you have several options:
Use of blocking
If you do not want guests to make reservations for your business on a specific day or time you can use blocking. This is suitable in cases when you expect a private event in your establishment, or you are completely full, or you have to close the business because of any other extraordinary reason. Each blocking, includes a reason, which will be displayed on the booking form. If it is an all-day block, the day is marked as “Closed” when the date is selected.
Rules for accepting reservations in the pro.restu administration
In the “Reservation restrictions” setting, you can set the minimum duration of the reservation, the maximum number of guests per reservation and much more.
By adjusting the opening hours
The opening hours are also displayed in the reservation form. When choosing a date, guests can see that it is not possible to make a reservation for this day and choose another available day.
How can I make a reservation for an event?
Events can also be booked using the reservation form. Each has its own detail, which corresponds to the set parameters of the event (date, time from and to, etc.) and the booking possibility for the event will be offered to the guests only the available times.
