How to use rules to change an item’s available spaces

in Rules Tags: Edit RulesRules List

You can create a rule that allows your inventory to have more or less availability depending on certain conditions by using the Set Availability action.

For example, if you need to block out a tour’s availability for a specific date, you could use the Date being booked condition to select the date, the Inventory Item condition to select that particular tour, and the Set Availability action to decrease its availability.

To create a rule that uses the Set Availability action, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to Inventory > Rules in the main menu.

2. Click Create Rule.
