Printing Daily Bookings

Basic Printing

Clicking/tapping the "Print" icon in the toolbar will print out the bookings for the currently viewed date, or date range.

Advanced Printing

Right-clicking (or long-clicking) the "Print" icon will present you with a number of additional options to further customize your print out. You can choose a specific date (or a date range) to print bookings for, narrow down the print out to a set time period, as well as select which venues and/or booking types should be included in the print out and also the print layout itself.

An Advanced Filter is also available, allowing you to include/exclude bookings from the generated print out that match a particular criterion. You'll be able to select a booking field (including any custom booking fields you've defined) from a drop-down list, select a match type, and enter a match string.

Match types available include:

  • Equals – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's value exactly matches the string you enter
  • Does Not Equal – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's value doesn't exactly matches the string you enter
  • Contains – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's value contains an occurrence of the string you enter
  • Does Not Contain – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's value contains no occurrences of the string you enter
  • Begins With – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's value begins with the string you enter
  • Ends With – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's value ends with the string you enter
  • Is Greater Than – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's numeric value is higher than the value you enter
  • Is Less Than – Will include bookings where the selected booking field's numeric value is higher than the value you enter
For example, you could generate a printout which only includes booking where there are more than 10 people attending, or generate a printout which excludes any bookings that have the phrase "exclude from printing" in their booking notes, etc.

A "Case Sensitive" match option is also available allowing you to optionally make string matches case sensitive.

Tip: If printing bookings in a "table" layout across a date range, the "Split Dates" option can be used to force a new printed page (page break) for each date. Left unticked, bookings over the date range will be combined into a continuous printout

Tip: If selecting the "Colorize printouts by Booking Type" option, please ensure that your browser is configured to print background colors/images/graphics. This setting is usually found within your browser's own print dialog

Tip: You can also print out a monthly overview of your bookings by switching to the "Month View" screen () and clicking/tapping the Print icon
