If the selected Inventory Item is an occurrence that takes place on a certain day and at a certain time, you should select "Event Availability" when recording its availability.

This is how you set up an Event Availability

To add an event availability for an inventory item, simply open the availabilities overview by

  1. navigating to the "Items" section in Inventory Management tab,
  2. and clicking on the calendar icon "" in the "Actions" column and from the desired inventory line.
  3. If no availabilities have been recorded for this inventory item, you will find the two buttons "Add event availability" and "Add daily availability" at the top right corner of the page.
    If availabilities have already been recorded for this inventory item, you can review, edit, add and delete them in the availabilities overview table. Otherwise, the table will be empty and Mercury will display the message "No availabilities found".
  4. Click on the "Add event availability" button.
  5. A small pop-up window will open in which you can enter the following information for your event:
    1. Volume (optional: corresponds to the billing volume stored in the Inventory Management) 
    2. Date (Mandatory field)
