Easy way to mark something unavailable without booking or creating an event?

We had some trees fall during a storm last weekend and I needed to quickly go in and mark a few sites unavailable so they wouldn't be booked before we could clean them up.  Is the only way to make an event?  The other scenario I have had is a large group called and I wanted to block several sites off until they got an accurate number so I could make sure I had enough room.  I didn't have info to make a booking as they were going to call me back later.  Is there a way to block off some sites temporarily without filling out a booking form or making an event?  The previous program I had let me mark sites unavailable from the calendar without going into a booking form.  Mostly looking for quick solutions for temporary markings.


  • Hi WCove,

    Thank you for reaching out! I'm sorry to hear that some trees have fallen on your sites, I hope everyone is okay!

    The easiest and most recommended way to close items for any length of time would be to create a Closure Item Event. You can do this by going to Manage > Item Events and create a new item event. Set the Availability to Unavailable, set the start and end dates to when you'd like the item to be closed on, and select the items you want to be closed. If you haven't already, I recommend taking a look at our YouTube video on closure item events here:

    Beyond making a booking, the only other way to close off an item for a period of time would be to go to the Inventory Calendar and manually set the inventory to 0 for the days you no longer want to be booked. You can read more about the inventory calendar on our Knowledge Base, here:

    I hope that helps! If you have any more questions feel free to reply or email us at support@checkfront.com; my team and I will be happy to help you out. :)
