Setting up capacity for online reservations from individual rooms is an easy way to start accepting online reservations.

How do I set online capacity from rooms?

  1. Set calculating online capacity for rooms

  2. Create a room and set the number of places for online reservations.

The total capacity for online reservations will then be the sum of the capacities of the online rooms.

How do I set up online capacity calculation from rooms?

  1. In the “Settings” section of pro.restu, click on “ERB settings

  2. In the menu, select “Rooms and capacity” and go to the “Your capacity settings” section

  3. If your current setting is “Capacity by table,” click on “Change to capacity by room” (otherwise you don't have to do anything)

  4. In the window displayed, fill in the capacity for room(s) and confirm the change

Please note:

  • Changing the online capacity calculation may affect the acceptance of online reservations and work in the electronic reservation book. We recommend making the change outside the establishment’s opening hours.

  • All future reservations that have been placed at tables will automatically be assigned to the same room as the table.
