What is Delegate Allocation Booking?

Delegate allocation booking is a feature where admins can create back-office bookings for a number of delegates without having to enter all their names on the booking.

Admins can choose to input their name at the time of booking creation or after the booking has been created.

To get this feature installed on your project, please contact your Project CRM Lead for installation and demo.
