Group Reservations

It’s possible that this is not the right place to post this, but it is where I was directed to by Square Support.

We are trying to find a way to use Square for group bookings. This is not the same as classes in our case. We have 6 Race Simulators that can be booked out in groups. Say there is a group of 4 who would like to come race, we want that service to check the calendar for 4 resources to be available, and if booked, add that group to all 4 of them. Conversely, we would also like it to not show a time slot if 4 resources are not available.

We tried using the feature where you can add additional services to a reservation, but it does not check and book them simultaneously, it does everything sequentially.

Are we the only ones trying to book groups in this manner? How are other achieving this?

Thank you for any suggestions.

Are you using our Bookings API or our fist party products when booking? If your using the Bookings API with a custom integration you can do this. Otherwise with our first party product this type of booking isn’t currently available. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’d love for it to be first party, but I would settle for direction on how to get started with building a custom integration with the API. We do not have a developer on staff, but if it is possible to do it that way, then I would absolutely seek out a developer that could make it happen for us.

I wanted to revisit this topic and see if there was any direction from anyone about getting connected with someone who could help us build this. Or is there a version of this that someone has already built that we could contract to adapt to our sim racing lounge. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
