This article is for those who want to open on a Special Day (e.g. ANZAC, Mother's Day, etc.) when they're not normally open on those days. (E.g. Mother's Day falls on a Sunday, and you're typically not open on a Sunday)
First is to open yourself up using the Trading Hours section of the system. You can do this by going to Pages on the left menu and then clicking on Trading Hours.
Once you are open, WOWAPPS then suggests blocking out the day leading up to the event and then a few weeks after. We suggest doing this because as soon as you open yourself up, customers will be able to order/book for that day of the week. By blocking out times before and after the date, you will stop this from happening. To learn how to Blockout days on Request Mode, please click here. To do it while Max Pax is ON, click here.
As soon as the date/day is finished, close yourself back up and it will be back to operating as normal.
See the image above (click to enlarge). I am choosing to open Sunday the 9th of May. so I have blocked out dates a month before and a month after.
Note: If customers wanted to book two months in advance, they will be able to do this. However, on average most customers only book 1-2 weeks out.
If it is for a special event only, you might be able to use the gift card section of the system as well, just like Alice Rebels did for Mother's Day 2021.
