In the daycare settings page make sure the 'Multi Day Bookings' settings is enabled.
Adding a Recurring Booking
When you go to add a booking you will see a duration drop-down list with two new options, Recurring and Multi-Day.
Recurring will let you choose the same day or days for bookings for up to 2 years.
In the booking wizard - select the days you wish to make the bookings for e.g. Tuesday and Friday and choose the number of weeks to repeat the bookings for e.g. 156 weeks.
In a subsequent step you will see all of the days selected and are able to see availability for the days selected - if a day requested is already at capacity you can choose to override the capacity check.
Note: if you are adding bookings for a couple of days for 156 weeks this screen make take a while to load as we need to check capacity for 312 days in the given example - likewise when saving these bookings it will take longer then usual.
Adding a Multi-Day Booking
While Multi-day bookings lets you choose different days for up to 90 days out. When you choose the multi-day option you will see a screen similar to the one below.
Choose the days you require by clicking on the checkbox for each day required, and proceed to add the bookings.
