Setting up your Settings, Toys and Member Categories for Online Hire.
Go to Home - Global Settings and change the following
online_hire = Yes
hire_everyday = Yes/No
Member Categories need to be flagged to be included in the Party Pack Hire process, see image below. Most Toy Libraries set up a new member category just for Party Pack Hire/ Jumping Castle Hire. This Member Category is usually set to a shorter expiry period, e.g. 3 weeks, or 3 month membership.
To set the JC flags go to Members - Select Boxes - Member Categories and change the below setting to YES
For each Toy that needs to be included in the Party Pack Hire process, set the Loan Type to JC and Reservation Toy = Yes. Go to the Toy Details page and edit toy, select JC for loan type and reservation Toy = Yes.
If you don't have a Loan Type = JC, then create it.
Go to Toys - Select Boxes - Loan Types - New and create a loan type JC ( make sure the code is uppercase JC)
