Another major update in this release is related to “Shareable Spaces.” A shareable space is a function space that can host multiple events at the same time. When creating a property’s function spaces, admins can now designate certain spaces as shareable. By default, a shareable space can have as many simultaneous events as the space’s configured capacity allows.
However, we also introduced the ability to “privatize” a shareable space. Let’s say a group calls and wants to buy out the entire restaurant or lobby bar. To that end, at the booking level, you can simply privatize a function space for the full duration of the booking event. Find out more about shareable spaces.
Another update in this release is to evaluate the status of a booking event in the overbooking process. For users who have access to overbooking, if the primary event in the overbooked space is confirmed, no additional events can be added to the space.
We now support the ability to overbook function spaces within a single booking. All users regardless of the overbooking permission are now able to book multiple events in the same room for a single booking.
