This feature allows the ability to bulk book children who were booked into previous terms. This is an easy way to roll-over bookings from one Term to the next. This feature is found under Tools > Batch Booking.
Please note: This feature only allows for bulk rollovers if they have the exact same booking as all the children that are being booked together. The reason for this is that you will setup Templates to book into, so all will have the exact same booking if booked together.
We do have the ability to book in children individually through this feature, but it does not act as a rollover - this is more of a rebooking feature. This will require you to manually create a booking for a child that resembles/replicated their last term's one.
For Before and After school batch booking you will need to have fast booking templates set up.
For holiday programmes you will need the next term's holiday programme set up
