Does the Instant Book Feature Check For Booking Conflicts Within Gather?
All bookings created via Instant Book automatically include a 30 minute buffer prepended to the booking (adds 30 minutes to the start time of the event). This buffer is currently a system default and cannot be edited or changed.
It is important to note that this buffer currently only applies to bookings created via Instant Book. If you have a booking in your Gather account that was created internally (either manually on your end or through the conversion of a lead) it is possible for an Instant Book event to butt up directly against this event.
For example, if a client has a non-Instant Book event starting at 7pm a guest can still book a 3 hour Instant Book event beginning at 4pm on the same day, in the same room as the event that starts at 7pm. This is because the 7pm event does not honor the Instant Book buffer.
