If your restaurant closes at lunch time for a couple of hours or if you wish to block off your simpleERB account for a few hours on a Tuesday afternoon you can split your opening service hours within the open/close times setting.
Go to open/close times setting here:
At the bottom of the page you will see this box below:
You can add your open/close times for the first part of the day. You can then add a second open/close time to this day. The system will then only open the booking time slots you have added as bookable.
Your booking view should then look like this, with the non bookable times between the service sittings appearing as 'manager only' bookings.
You need to make sure that your last booking time and close time in this setting don't conflict with your table back by time you have in place.
You can also set up advanced settings, your service sittings here, so that you can pull reports and booking information pertaining to those sittings. Example you can split them up as lunch, dinner, pre-theatre, afternoon tea, so you can clearly see the booking covers being made.
