To give a yogi a fixed spot in future classes by placing the yogi in an infinite class series, there is a difference between making a reservation and a booking. Whether you have reserved or booked a spot for the yogi, depends on the validity of his or her class pass or membership.
The difference between a reservation and a booking
- A reservation takes place when the current class pass or membership of the yogi is not valid (yet) for the class in the future.
- A booking takes place if the yogi is booked into a class with a class pass or membership that is valid for the class in the future.
For example: The yogi has purchased a recurring membership or a class pass with the validity of one month, and has a fixed spot in an infinite series of classes. De classes that take place in the month that the membership or class pass is valid for, will be displayed as booked. The classes that take place after that month, will be displayed as an unpaid reservation.
Can a reservation be converted into a booking?
Whether a reservation automatically converts into a booking, depends on the product that the yogi has purchased, namely...
- ... if the yogi has purchased a class pass, the reservation has to be converted manually by the admin (or teacher).
- ... if the yogi has purchased a recurring membership, the reservation will be converted into a booking automatically.
Convert a reservation manually with a class pass
Yogis that have purchased a class pass, have a bit more flexibility in the usage of it. When a class pass expires, a yogi does not have to buy a new class pass for future use.
When you have given a yogi with a class pass a fixed spot in an infinite class series, the class pass will not suffice and be valid for all of the classes. The classes which the class pass is valid for will be booked. The classes which the class pass is not valid for will be displayed as an unpaid reservation. When the yogi purchases a new class pass which is valid for classes in the future, the admin or teacher has to remove the yogi from the classes manually and re-book them to make sure the correct class pass will be used as payment.

With a recurring membership
Recurring memberships are renewed automatically every month. The status of the reservation will automatically convert from an unpaid reservation into a booking, the moment that the recurring membership of the perspective month is renewed.
Please note: The reserved class will be displayed as Reservation in the schedule of the yogi and can not be canceled. It will be possible for the yogi to cancel the class after the reservation has been converted into a booking. The teacher of admin can remove the yogi from class at any given time.
