Since version 2.1: - captcha has been added for anonymous users. - booking content can be added only from the view folder links. - booking can’t be added in the past anymore.


The product comes with its own workflow “prenotazioni_workflow”.

Since version 2.1 a new states has been added.

Private: booking object initial state:

  • submit (Automatic transition to pending)


Transaction available:

  • publish (to published)
  • refuse (to refused)


Transaction available:

  • refuse (to refused)


Transaction available:

  • restore (to pending)

Managers can confirm a Booking using workflow transitions. The workflow transition triggers an email to be sent to the booker (see below).

Content Rules (mail notifications)

There are additional content rules that can be used to notify booking owner when his booking has been accepted or re-scheduled.

Rules are automatically created and enabled. See the Rule control panel to change settings.

There’s also a rule that can warn the Booking Folder responsible when new booking are created, but you need to manually enable it on folders.


Add rg.prenotazioni to the egg section of your instance:
