Note: It may be wise to communicate annually when "the WIP calendar is now open for bookings", to ensure that all seminars are pre-filled before it goes to wider release.
## Block out "no meeting" slots
An administrator should prevent bookings in the calendar at times when meetings are not possible, for example during the Christmas break. Do this by creating a booking with the description and title/author/abstract "no meeting".
## Generate and assign booker for off-schedule meetings
It is possible to adjust the template to enable bookings outside of the Wednesday 12:00-13:00 slot. If such meetings are sporadic, however, it is easier for an administrator to book the slot at the desired time and transfer ownership meeting to the appropriate coordinator.
1. Select the required coordinator from the list of possible owners. This list shows everyone with a Calpendo account.
2. The owner will not be notified of the booking you have made for them. Set an appropriate email notification period to remind them of the booking.
3. Tick the "send reminders to booking owner" box to ensure they are received by the owner you have selected.

It may be useful at this stage to use Calpendo to inform them that you have made a booking on their behalf, and email to request that they add any available details. Click "Send email" then check the "owner" box to include the nominated owner as a recipient.

On the email composer screen, enter a subject heading and message body. The email will be sent from your email address, but the message will include a line *"Sent by the WIN Booking System. Please do not reply to this email as this address is not monitored."*
