Users can enter a Hold Space for a meeting room on a date. This is useful for maintenance issues, carpet cleanings, as well as for a temporary posting to show users that perhaps a salesperson is working with a group on a date but has not entered the function space formally within a booking.

To enter a Hold Space for a meeting room in the function diary:

  1. Click the Hold Button
  2. Click and drag the cursor across the time frame in the room you want to put a Hold Space into effect,
  3. A maroon bar will appear in the meeting room for the times selected
  4. Click the Bar that appeared in the room
  5. A window will popup allowing you to enter the reason for the hold.
  6. Click Save
  7. The bar will update with the reason for users to see

Use the Clear button to close any open popup windows


If a hold space is used while negotiating with a client prior to creating a formal function event within a booking, users will have to release the Hold Space to block the group into the room. To release a hold space:

  1. Go to the date of the hold
  2. Click the Hold space bar in the meeting room
  3. Click the Delete button

NOTE: Hold space should be checked routinely using the Hold Space report in the Reporting module.
