1. Setting up default bookings status
The Ecalypse rental plugin let's you assign statuses to bookings. It also lets you set up which status to automatically assign to new bookings. Please note that all bookings paid online will automatically be marked as "confirmed". This setting cannot be changed.
For bookings that are paid offline, you can change the default status by going to Ecalypse rental -> settings -> scroll down a bit and select the default status you want to assign:
Once you are editing the booking, you can change the status and then:
1) save the whole booking (this will not send the corresponding email)
2) Send the whole booking and send relevant status email -> this will save the booking and send corresponding status email
3) Leave the booking without saving
System/version demonstrated: Ecalypse rental v3.1.15
