If you are looking for a quick way to make specific time slots bookable by manager only, you can make changes within the smallest/largest advanced setting.
This will mean you won’t be able to take widget bookings and waitstaff will not be able to enter telephone or mark walkin bookings.
As you can see above, all bookings are currently open on this day between 11:30 - 12:45. As an example, let's say you need to close bookings between 11:45 - 12:15 every Wednesday as you have a recurring large activity group that arrives at 11:30 and you don't want staff to take any bookings until 12:30.
In order to block these bookings from widget and from waitstaff follow this link: https://app.simpleerb.com/restaurant/setup/advanced/SmallesLargest.aspx
WIthin this setting you can set your smallest and largest bookings to 1 for the time period required for that day. We have blocked from 11:45 and set the 'end time' (to reopen) as 12:30.
As you can see below, this will block out all bookings for that time period.
To remove this, just go back into the setting and delete the edit made.
If the edit only applies for that day, you will need to remember to go in and remove this otherwise it will appear on that recurring day of the week.
