How to book a parking spot for a user?

There are two different ways for you to create a booking for a profile if they cannot access their account.

This feature's availability depends on your subscription plan and role.

Definition:  A booking is an access strategy where the user books a parking spot in advance (within the day limit) by using the calendar interface. The user selects a specific schedule within the hours authorized by their access service and the availability of the parking lot. The user will be able to enter the parking lot within the booking period.


When should I create a booking for a user? 

Users with a booking access (BOOK) can create or delete their own bookings. To make use of the parking lot, users must therefore book a spot in advance (the planning period is defined in the access description). It is possible that for some reason a user does not have access to their account and therefore cannot create their booking. In this case, you may be asked by the user to create one on their behalf. 

As an administrator, you can create but also delete a spot booking for your users. 

Please note that when creating a booking for a user as an administrator, no credit will be deducted from their credit balance (in case booking is linked to credit).
