Using Space Usages
Space usage tracks the specific purpose for which a booked space is being used. A single event will typically be divided into load-in days, event days, and load-out days. The usage is a higher-level designation that allows you to divide the event, without getting as granular as the function schedule. Space usages can show on the calendar and can also be shown on reports. For calculating space utilization, it can be used to filter out event days from load-in days. Since usages can be user defined, system admins can customize space usages to meet your account-specific usage designations: Rehearsal, Artist Use, Building Tour, etc.
For directions to show space usages on the calendar, please see the Calendar Display Options article.
Space usages can be applied:
- When creating an event or adding dates to an existing event using the Add Event slider. This slider is available on the calendar and event list pages.
- When using the Edit Spaces slider. This slider is available by clicking the edit icon by Spaces on the event summary slider from the calendar or clicking the edit icon on the Booking > Spaces tab of the event details page.
For more information, please see the Updating Multiple Spaces on an Event article.
- When adding spaces to an event on the event details page using the Book Spaces slider. You can open this slider by clicking the add icon on the Booking > Spaces tab.
