Casual bookings from sign-in on the Playground Application
Booking rules engine for both casual sign-ins and the parent mobile bookings feature

Features & Enhancements
Bookings 2.0 - Booking Rules Engine
The first feature from the upcoming Bookings 2.0 release is the Booking Rules engine.
This screen allows services to configure booking rules that will be used to determine both casual sign-in based bookings (such as those from the hub, Home App and the Playground App) and mobile bookings from the Home App.
Booking rules are set at a service level from Setting > Service Settings > Booking Rules.
Booking rules are configured by:
Selecting a min and max sign-in time (for casual attendance bookings) to apply the rule to
Selecting a min and max child age group to apply the rule to
Selecting a day or group of days to apply the rule to
Setting a room to apply to the booking that is created
Setting a fee to apply to the booking that is created
