HOWTO Enter a booking
The procedure for the administrator to create a booking is very similar to the 'Request a booking' procedure for normal users - and uses the same from on the 'Booking Request' page. There are, however, a few noteable differences:
- The booking will not be marked as provisional - it will go straight into the system as a full booking.
- You are able to create a booking 'on behalf' of someone else. This is useful if, for example, the Beaver section has requested a booking by telephone or other means.
