When booking a room, do CSRs need to provide a date that they are booking the room for ?

Good day all.

When booking a room,
a) CSRs provide the client ID only and just click book button?

OR

b) Do they provide the Date the room is being booked for and the client ID then click book button?

A room is available on the date stored in the database file, so they just enter customer id and book the room (when it is of course not yet booked by another CSR)

Kind regards,
Roel

Thanks Roel.
Update ID field only needed.

Hi,

my assignemt says (URLyBird 1.1.2:
They take bookings only within 48 hours of the start of room occupancy.

What does this "only within 48 hours" imply?
Doesn't this mean, that if the equation
now + 48 hours < available date
ist true, that I have to avoid booking because of the stated rule?

And since most booking dates in the given database are in the past, booking wouldn't be possible anyways?
This is why I implemented the update-functionality for all fields as well, because if you want to book, you have to make sure:
  • 1. there is an available room with a date in future (because booking rooms in the past just doesn't make sense
  • 2. enable booking only, if it takes place within 48 hours up to the availbility date


  • Kind regards,
    Andy

    Don't highjack someone else's thread to ask your own (unrelated to the original post) question

    I thought it was related to the original question because of the date issue?

    just create a new thread with as topic "what about the 48-hours rule" and just ask your question there. So it becomes easier for other ranchers (and for us, bartenders) to point to that thread, because it has a very appropriate title.
