Alias to Alias

My setup is the following
Lane A
Lane B
Stall 1 (aliased to "Lane A" & "Lane B")
Lane C
Lane D
Stall 2 (aliased to "Lane C" & "Lane D")

I want to have an Event which is alias to Stall 1 & Stall 2, but I can't do it thru the GUI.  The goal is to be able to have it 2 Alias deep.  Is this possible or is another solution?

  • I think it's the best solution..it's clear that is possible
  • Hi RuleofEight,

    I hope you're doing well! At the moment you can not do multi-level aliasing. This is because Aliasing opens up an item's inventory pool so that all the items that are aliased to it can share in the same resource. For example, If you had Item B and you aliased it to item A, Item B and item A will now share the same inventory and availability. Now say you could have multi-level aliasing, and you aliased item C to item B. Item C would then share item B's inventory pool which is item A's inventory pool. This is the same as just aliasing item C directly to item A.

    Based on your example here, I don't think I have quite enough information to make a good recommendation. Would you mind emailing support@checkfront.com with your Checkfront account URL and a description of what you're trying to do and how you'd like the event and your lanes to work? Checkfront is an incredibly flexible system, and I'm sure with some additional information we would be able to find a good solution for you. :) 

    I hope you have a great day, and I look forward to hearing back from you!

  • Thanks Jay for the example and the inventory pool.  I will gather my thoughts and send an email to support with a better description.
