Making a Bed Inactive

When booking in families with children, it may sometimes be necessary to move single clients out of one room into another room to keep a family together.

You may also need to make an extra bed in a room containing two family members temporarily inactive to ensure families don’t end up with a stranger in the room. Making beds temporarily inactive also helps your shelter to provide accurate information about your occupancy rate.

Step by Step: Making a bed inactive

  1. Place the family in a room together
  2. Right click on the extra bed and select Make Inactive – Sharing – Family
  3. Exit from the window
