After its creation the slot will be displayed as “busy” for anonymous user and the slot won’t be available anymore.

Back-end users can see and manage the reservation according to the assigned Plone roles.

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 versione 2.1 a new states has been added. Here below a list of all the states available:

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 not automatically as of version 3.x. They are imported by a separate generic setup profile.

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.


You can specify days when the Booking Folder will not accept bookings. Those days are called “Vacation days”. Vacation days can be specified compiling the “Vacation days” field in the Booking Folder edit form. Values are allowed in the format DD/MM/YYYY. Instead of the year you can put an asterisk, in this case every here the day DD of month MM will be considered a vacation day.

It is also possible to specify a vacation period for a single gate using the vacation booking form.

The view of Booking Folder


Using the prenotazioni_search view it is possible to search bookings within a given time interval. You can also filter the results specifying a searchable text, a gate or a review state.
