Administration area / Interactive extensions / Availability extensions
An availability extension is an addition that has been made to the original availability. This means that the availability of the linked calendars will be directly influenced by this component.
Availability extensions can be useful for instance when the same product or service has different prices for different categories of people (adults, children etc). Accordingly, when a reservation for two adults and a child is made, all three items are subtracted from the availability and the price is calculated considering the different prices for the two categories. The software is in BETA and some feature aren't available at the moment or may be subject to change.
Once you have created an availability extension, you can customise it in the configuration section. In the advanced settings, you can set custom availability, schedule and conditions. Main settings incorporate three tabs: ‘applied to’ that can be used to link the component to one or more calendars, ‘actions’ which can be used to delete or duplicate it and ‘main data’ which contains the following:
1NameEdit this field to change the name of the availability extension. Only you can see this name.2LabelEdit this field to create a label for your availability extension.

When it is enabled the extension will be displayed as a list and multiple options can be selected. By default, this toggle is disabled.4Add an itemClick this button to add a new item. For the example listed above (different prices for adults and children) you’ll have to create an availability extension for each category, then add an item for every available option.
