What is the Difference Between an Event and a Booking

Mazévo uses the terms Events, Bookings, and Resources to describe the three different levels of the data stored in the system.

The different levels of data

In Mazevo, there are 3 levels of data:

1st Level - Event: The event is the first level or parent level.  Think of the event as holding the Who and What information.  The event level holds information like the event name, the organization holding the event, the contact information, and the billing information for the event.  

 

2nd Level - Booking:  Each event contains one or more bookings.  Each booking specifies the date, start and end time, and location. Think of the booking and the When and Where portion of the event.  

 

3rd Level - Resources: Each booking can have one or more resources specified.  The resources can be different for each booking on an event (they can also be the same).  It is possible that a booking does not require any resources. Examples of resources are projectors, tables, and coffee.  

 

For additional Mazévo terminology see this article. If you are using EMS, here is a comparison of the two system's terminology.
