  3. Allow Online Reservations: This setting will turn on or off the capability of your participants going in to make reservations from the "client" side of the website.
  4. Verify Eligibility: this setting will require that participants be marked as GT Eligible in order to register for your class sessions. You should only use this setting if you are importing or manually entering your participants into the system before they create an account online.
  5. Use Turn Around Time: the turn around time feature let's you specify how much "buffer" time you want to add to each reservation before allowing new reservations on the same item. You can specify the default turn around time in minutes, hours or days. You will be able to change the turn around time for individual items.
