Booking panel allows you to manage all bookings, find the details, assign drivers and control payments.
- Latest – here you will find the the bookings which need the operator’s most immediate attention. All new bookings appear in this tab.
- Completed – all completed bookings are moved to this tab automatically and will be kept here as long as it’s needed.
- Canceled – bookings that have been cancelled are moved automatically to this tab.
- All – in this tab all bookings are visible in chronological order, no matter their status.
- Calendar – all bookings, but sorted in a interactive calendar
- Add New – allows the admin to create a new booking.
Every reservation contains all the particulars of a booking: the Journey Details, Reservation Details and Customer Details.
After entering a chosen reservations tab (Latest, Completed, Cancelled) you will be able to choose from a multitude of actions from the menu.
The actions you can take in a particular tab are:
Column visibility (eye symbol) – customize your panel, with this option you can switch on/off columns to create the most suitable setting for your company’s style of work. With a single click a column can be added or taken out of view. The user decides which ones he wants or needs to activate at a given time. Active columns are highlighted with blue and the inactive ones are grey.
Reset (right-left arrow symbol) – resets the column order to their default positions and setting.
Refresh – if you wish to refresh the system, you can do that at any moment with the third symbol. The admin panel does however have an automatic, 60 second refresh mechanism anyway. You can set the refresh time to a custom value by going to Settings, then Booking, Booking Listing Refresh and pick a desired “Refresh time”. The minimum being 30 seconds.
- The Filter is a very helpful tool that assists you in finding the data of a specific group. The search can be conducted in one or many data groups: Source, Status, Payment method, Payment status, Driver, Customer, From, To, Data Type. Combining more options together will narrow the search results and help you reach more specific results.
- You can also try to search via a keyword by simply typing it in the Search field and confirming with a click – the system will look for any sings of it in all the available data
- The Reset button will cancel any filters you have chosen and will restore the list of all reservations
Export – click to see the list of available actions:
- Export chosen bookings to a MS Excel files (.xlsx or .xls)

- Send Invoice to selected customers via email.
Report button – to create a new financial report, go to Filter/Search and choose a filter from the pop-up menu on a given column. Then confirm your choice with the Reports button in the main menu.
In each report you will find a:
- Payment Report – a analysis of data for each separate payment method (Cash, PayPal, Credit Card) or all of them together (All Payments).

Use the panel on the left side of the Bookings site to manage reservations with these options:

- Edit – use this to edit the booking
- Payment history – click to check the history of transactions for a particular booking
Invoice – the system will automatically create an invoice for the chosen booking. You can download the invoice to your drive or print it.
- Duplicate – this allows you to duplicate the booking. A useful option if you want to create a similar booking, but with slight changes (you can easily edit the details of the, duplicated new booking)
- Delete – think twice before using this one, it deletes the booking from the system and it cannot be recovered once deleted!
Build your own booking panel
All bookings details are divided into groups which you see in the panel as columns. We know the panel is your working space, a sacred space. Make it your own! That is why you can adapt and alter the columns order in any way you see fit.
- All available columns that can be added to your main view are listed in the Column Visibility section. You can choose from a really wide variety of alternatives. All in all, that’s over 30 options! Your setting will be saved in the browser.
- You can also order the columns in any way you like to. Just click on the title of a column, hold it and drag it slowly in the direction you want it to move to. Once you let go, the new position for that column will be saved in the browser’s memory.
