Accept manually deflectable automatically conflict

When this rule is selected Recorded deflected all requests automatically. All requests for an available resource preliminary reservation and must be approved manually. If you want to use this rule, we recommend you to forward a copy of the booking message to the account that you log on to manually accept the booking.

Always accept automatically

All resource reservations are accepted automatically, whether it is free or already booked up. An example of the use of this rule may be if you are often booking appointments in a public place that does not need to be booked first, but you want to get the site’s address and contact information in your invitation in a simple way.

Neither accept or decline automatically

All booking requests are handled manually.

When the rule deflector is automatically used, you can also add exceptions. That is to say that it is possible to book the resource even though it is already fully booked.

  • Upon registration of the resource is determined how many times or the percentage of those conflicts to be let through.
  • This is useful if you have recurring appointments or meetings that extend over a longer period. So that it is possible to reserve the resource during the time when it has not been double-booked already.
