The Room or Resource I need is blocked…what now?
Log into Planning Center
Go to your Event
Create or Open a Reservation Block
When you go to add the room or resource, if it is not available, it will be greyed out.
Determine why it is not available by clicking the grey stop sign symbol to the right. Click on the event or events listed to see why the conflict occurs.
Is this really a conflict?
You will need to reschedule your event or work out details with the owner of the other event to free up the room or resource so you can add it to your request. (This requires teamwork.)
Often times, this type of conflict occurs when you are are scheduling a reoccurring event.
In this situation, you may solve it by simply scheduling around the already existing event. Knowing that you will not be able to meet on that specific night or will need to make arrangements with the other event taking place. To do this follow the steps below:
This can be complicated especially if your reoccurring event happens on a busy night. If you need help, you can use Paul as a resource. (Make sure to work out details with other events prior to asking Paul to help change the schedule.)
Why does this see so difficult?
This is actually a helpful limitation in the system designed to make sure we never double book a room or resource. (Just imagine the chaos of two events showing up to use the same room at the same time.)
