The reservation system offers a range of features to easy organize and manage bookable items, multiple calendar layouts, advanced price settings and much more. To adapt it, no extra coding is needed, almost everything can be configured from the component back-end.

I used this to: we used it for our site, bought a new version, and decided to stop using this product. And all recommend not to use it.
Functionality
The extension is offering a lot of possibilities, much more than our present needs. We don't need pricing yet but I have done some tests.
Ease of use
It is not easy to use because you need a deep understanding of all parameters and their hierarchy. Clear ideas and lots of tests are needed.
Support
The support is a good team. I am overall pleased of the answers
Documentation
There is a long documentation but I would give more details over configuration parameters hierarchy
I used this to: 50 associations are booking festive and meeting rooms of a building, and this per hour or per day. They can see who have boorked and the managers can changed bookings when needed. Mails are sent to users and managers when booking are made or canceled.
Functionality
It does the job well and integrates with joomla templates very well - I only had to make a couple of minor css edits to make it look goo
Ease of use
A bit difficult to get up and running - but with the help of the Support Team I managed a multi-booking system it in a day
Support
Support is pretty quick to reply to tickets - and helpful when they do
Documentation
The docs are pretty concise thought the English can be as little surprising, but a 2nd reading usually helps you figure out what it means
I used this to: Booking system for a client that required multiple services to be bookable and to be able to take deposits at booking time

The service is bad.

I used this to: I purchase your book it. But you not reply my question and not introduce in book it. bad service.
Functionality
The extension is highly customizable and has many options. I use this extension to manage the reservations of some items in my intranet.
Ease of use
Basic functions are easily configurable, but if you want something more specific is more difficult to customize because it has many options.
Support
I contacted several times with the company to add functionality and have always responded quickly. Very good direct support.

Functionality
It has many features to be used in numerous cases
Ease of use
It's a bit complicated to learn to manage completely because its functionalities contemplate numerous configuration possibilities, but give
Support
excellent and fast support, at least in my case. Since I started with version 2.3.1, two months ago, I reported several bugs and have solved
Documentation
I've missed a bit of documentation on all features and possibilities of choices on the menu, I had to go discovering as I was testing the ap
I used this to: I use the application to reserve lunch menus of different cooks
Functionality
In theory there are a lot function, but unfortunately most of them are hidden or broken.
Ease of use
It seems like there is no way to use it without weeks of practice.
Support
They try to help, but most of the time it's like "we can make it but not explain it". And the forum is broken.
Documentation
Unfortunately just a few examples without the possibility to dig deeper.

Excellent Tool

This is a clever booking engine which was just what we needed for our website, to allow people to book three different fields at a campsite. It's quite tricky to get your head around, but the support docs are excellent and you can submit a ticket if you get stuck. Highly recommended.

From Free to Paid

It is two years and two different sites that I am using this component now. It is not for the faint hearted and I am using this component for industrial booking. I did try many other systems as well and I also struggled to get it to work, but once get to know it, working like a charm.

My advise is that when you want to use this component, read the docs very carefully as well as the provided videos on the setup and you will really start enjoying its full potential.

Great component.

Waste of time!

Actually developers lies that this is free extension. Its a trick just to buy the full version. As this one which is free, is totally pointless. Whats is the point of booking system without payment options? Its pretty hard on their website to find difference. I just waste 2 days setting up this extension, and find out it has no payment gateway!
Owner's reply: Sorry to hear that, just let me react shorty:
* comparision of Booking editions available is clearly summarized at http://www.artio.net/book-it/editions-comparison
* we think, that for private usage, many small e.g. B&B owners do not need online payments and still may have good use for a reservation component
* once the customer requires online payments, then they probably want it to run their business - in such case we think they should consider supporting the development and purchase a paid version
After wasting 2 hours of my life configuring this Component, it tells me that I can only create 2 Objects in the free Version.

This would be fine, but THIS FACT CAN'T BE FOUND ANYWHERE ON THEIR SITE.



I'm going to report this Extension so the creators are forced to write this limitation clearly on this site.



You can't call this Extension Non-Commercial just because it works for free if you have just TWO items to manage. This is simply fraud.



You can't even imagine how angry I am. I won't use a single Extension made from Artio ever again.
Owner's reply: Hello, you do not need to be angry. This limitation fact is published at our sire already for ages:
http://www.artio.net/book-it/editions-comparison
I just want to say is a great extension and when you need support they are always there, and im greatfull with the staff cause the help all the time when you have any issue with the extension.

Thank you
