Creating New Experiences
Creating new experiences on your AnyRoad Dashboard will allow your guests to make bookings for them on your website.
When publishing a new experience there are several technical considerations to take into account, such as:
- Selecting your Experience Audience
- Defining your Experience Schedule
- Structuring your Experience Pricing
- Setting your Guest Capacity
- Building a Cancellation Policy
To create a new experience:
- Go to the Experiences tab in your Dashboard
- Click on Create New at the top right corner of the page
- Choose the name of the experience you will be creating and the location it will take place. The new experience will now appear as unfinished with a 4 steps to publish button. Click on this message to add the rest of the information for the new experience
About the Experience
In this tab, you can edit the name of your experience, add a subtitle and description as well as a brief itinerary or any other relevant details (what a guest should bring or what kind of shoes and clothes to wear). Basic HTML editing is supported.
The type of experience, location, duration, and capacity can be found and edited in the Scheduling tab.
Setting up the experience as Public will allow multiple bookings for the same timeslot whereas making an experience Private will allow only one booking per timeslot.
The Capacity section contains info on the type of experience, as well as the number of spots available for each experience.
The number of guests that can book per booking, as well as the overall total number of guests for an experience, can be defined in this section. You can learn more information on how to edit the capacity of an experience here.
You can also customize the experience schedule by adding blackout dates and times when your business is closed or you cannot accommodate events. Here is how you can edit the experience schedule.
In the Pricing section, you can select whether the experience will be paid or free, the currency, ticket prices, and cancellation policy for your experience. If your activities require a deposit you can add it here as well. Please note that deposits can be up to 50% of the total price. In this section, you can also choose to cover the service fee or pass the fee of the experience to the guests.
The Photos tab is where all photos for your experience should be uploaded. The first image will be used as a cover photo for your experience by default but you can rearrange the photos as needed after they are uploaded.
Please note that landscape images work best for your cover photo. For best results, we recommend that your image is a minimum of 1440 pixels in width and at least 580 pixels in height. To remove a photo, you must have at least one other photo available first. Keep in mind you can rearrange the photos in the order you would like them to appear on the experience page.
How to Edit Experiences
You can edit any of your experiences by clicking the Edit button under that experience. If the experience is set to standard, any changes made will be reflected immediately on your website booking plugin.
Please note that any changes you make to your experiences will not affect pre-existing bookings for those experiences.
You can find additional info on Managing Experiences here.
