Prevent pending bookings from blocking dates

Is “request booking” in rental hive blocking those dates until booking is accepted or rejected? It certainly seems like it - that is a FATAL FLAW that needs to be corrected if so. So someone could come in and request the entire summer and then anyone after that couldn’t request any date until the owner accepted or rejected that request?? Please tell me that can be fixed IMMEDIATELY.

Hi,

If you need the status pending not to block dates, you must change HivePress > Settings > Bookings > Blocking Statuses by removing the Pending status.

Thanks and great to know but that should not be the default setting (being blocked) - that makes ZERO sense

Thanks, we’ll consider setting this by default. Please try using this option to unblock the Pending status if this is required for your site.

This was the solution
