Overbooking Function Space
If the function space authorization level has been reached, the user can choose to overbook the function space, overriding the authorization level. The function space can be overbooked as many times as allowed by the overbook limit. The overbook limit is entered as part of the inventory control setup.
If the function space is available because of a cancellation, then the function space is reserved. However, if the function space is still not available, then the inventory status is changed to Overbooked. A new availability check is launched each time the user clicks Overbook. If the function space becomes available, then the overbooked function automatically becomes reserved.
NOTE: If an optioned and overbooked function exist and function space become available, the overbooked function receives first priority.
