Resources: What They Are and How to Create Them

Resources are the detailed items required or requested for an event. The list of resources available for events are defined and managed by service administrators.

Overview

Resources are the items or services you add to bookings. Examples of resources include:

  • 6-foot table
  • Folding Chair
  • Wireless Microphone
  • Coffee
  • Donuts

To create a resource:

  1. Go to Settings > Resources.
  2. Click Add Resource and enter the following data:
Enter the data:
  • Enter the name of the new resource.
  • Enter any descriptive Notes about the resource, if appropriate.  These notes will display to the requester when selecting this resource.
  • Select the Resource Grouping, if appropriate.  Resource groups categorize longer lists of resources into logical groupings (Beverages, Lunch Entrees, Desserts, Tables)
  • Select the Service Provider.  
  • If there is a limited quantity of the item, select the Inventory? checkbox and enter the total inventory quantity of this item. 

    Click Save.

Special Resources

There are two unique types of resources available in Mazévo, created by using the resource groupings of Notes or Service Description. 

A resource with a Notes resource grouping can only be used to enter notes.  Quantity and pricing is not available to a note resource.

A resource created with a Service Description grouping can be used to specify a descriptive style of service to be provided.  An example for a catering service provider could include the following:

  • Plated Service
  • Buffet
  • Reception
  • Break Service

Like a notes resource, service description resources don't have a price associated to them. 

 

Requestable Resources

You can limit which resources you allow your users to requests (if you are using Mazévo to take requests).

To mark a resource as requestable:

  1. From the list of resources, click the checkbox next to the resource.  You can select more than one resource for this operation.
  2. Choose Requestable > Yes from the menu that appears above the list of resources.
