Before You Begin
- Recurrence is automatically enabled for all reservations made by a staff member from the private reservation page.
- Recurrence on the public form needs to be turned on/off from the stockroom page.
How it works for staff reservations
Navigate to the loaner stockroom of your choice and click on the <New Reservation> button.
Fill in the general tab, and when you are ready to create a recurrence, click on the <Add recurrence> checkbox.
The following options will appear.
Daily: Allows the setup of a repeating daily loaner.
Weekly: Allows the setup of a repeating weekly loaner
Monthly: Allows the setup of a repeating monthly loaner.
Yearly: Allows the setup of a repeating yearly loaner.
The recurrange range section can be filled in to specify the start date/time of a recurrence, as well as the expected finish date. There are two options available.
- The first one allows the loaner to finish after a fixed date.
- The second option allows the loaner to finish after an X amount of occurences.
Once a recurrence has been completed, it will display with an icon, to help staff visually identify when a recurrence has been setup for the loaner.
It is important to remember that recurrences cannot be modified within Hector. In order to modify a loaner’s recurrence, the recurrence must be cancelled from the edit screen and a new recurrence created afterwards.
How it works for public reservations
You will need to activate recurrent reservations from your stockroom. Navigate to the stockroom of your choice, click on the edit button, and then click on the <Loaner> tab.
Once this step is completed, users will be able to make recurrent reservations from the public reservation page.
