Hi

I'm confused about the 48-hour rule for room booking.
I assume that room occupency starts at 3PM on the day the room
is available. If the time of the attempted booking is t, I find the difference between 3PM and t. If it falls withing 48 hours, I book.

Now, some rooms don't get booked by 3PM and I think they should be still available on the market. How long should I keep'em available? till midnight?
till the next 3PM of the next day?
Should we assume booking is done via CSR; thus the cuttoff is end of the work day of CSRs?

Can anyone help me?

Regards

S

I see we do the same assignment.
I guess it is up to your decision described in "General considerations".
Of course there bad and good decissions

For me that 3PM is a little bit complex.
In my assignment "date" field contains only YYYY/MM/DD and I do not care about HH:MM. For me a room is available for booking if "date" is today or tomorrow.

The only thing do not know yet is if I should give user possibility to see all records (historical+all future) depending on checkbox. It seems to be not needed and it would speed up data transfer.
Any idea? Good/bad decisions?

Tom
