Conflict Checking

When you book an event in VenueOps, you will be alerted about possible conflicts in the space you are booking.

When you add space to your event, each space will be assigned the next available tentative status. This could be a tentative 1 (if there is a confirmed event or no other tentatives) or a lower tentative rank (if there are already tentative events in place). The space status is colored to alert you to what is already booked:

  • If the space status is grey, there are no events booked.
  • If the space status is orange, there are tentatives booked.
  • If the space status is red, there are definite events booked.

To see which statuses are in use, click that space's status:

In the example above, you can see that there is already a tentative 1 on this date, which is why it was assigned a T2. Clicking the space status for the last day shows that there is a definite event already booked.

If one of your spaces has the same status as another event on that day, or if it will "jump the queue" (e.g. book a tentative 1 when there is a 2 and 3, or confirm an event when there is already a tentative 1), the status bubbles will be filled in instead of outlined.

If you decide to proceed with booking this event, you will get another pop-up warning when you click Save to confirm that this is what you wish to do.
