To add an Online Message

1. Open your E.Diary and click on 'Menu'

2. Scroll down and click on 'Opening Hours'

3. In the bottom right, select a 'Rota' or make a 'New Rota'

4. Click on the white space under 'Session, From, To, Type, Online same day cutoff' if you need to add opening times the Rota (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner), or if you are closed, simply leave this blank. (see in example below)
5. Enter the message that you would like to have appear on your website in the box under 'Online Message' (see in example below)

6. Make sure the Rota is applied to a date, either as a 'Special date' or as a weekly occurrence by selecting the Rota against week days in the 'Weekly Rotas' section

7. Click Save - then go to your website and check the message appears on your booking from when you select the right dates
