Caching

When setting up this formula the calls to the Bartec Collective API are cached for the time specified in Settings > Integrations > Bartec Collective > Settings under the Cache Timeout setting.

Cache setting

Setting the Cache Timeout to 0 Minutes/Hours will disable caching on this formula.

Formula Logic

  1. A check is made to see if the integration has been enabled in the Settings > Integrations page. If the integration is not enabled the formula returns No available booking dates.

  2. The start of the booking period is calculated, by taking the current date/time, and adding (24 + the number of hours specified as the cut-off period). The booking period begins at midnight on this date.

    As an example, if the current time is 7pm on Wednesday and the cut-off period is 4 hours, the booking period starts at midnight on Thursday, as Wednesday 7pm + 28 hours is 11pm on Thursday. If the current time is 9pm on Wednesday, the booking period starts at midnight on Friday, as Wednesday 9pm + 28 hours is 1am on Friday.

  3. The end of the booking period is calculated, by taking the next day's date, and adding the number of weeks specified by the booking period input.

  4. A call is made to Premises_FutureWorkPacks_Get passing in the UPRN, feature status, feature type and booking period inputs. This returns matching workpacks.

  5. If no workpacks are returned from the API the formula will return No available booking dates.

  6. For all the workpacks that are returned, the workpack values are tested against the corresponding maximum values provided as inputs:

    • JobsCount must be less than maximum number of jobs allowed per workpack
    • PremisesCount must be less than maximum number of premises allowed per workpack
    • JobsVolume must be less than maximum job volume allowed per workpack
    • JobsWeight must be less than maximum job weight allowed per workpack

      If all the above conditions are satisfied, the workpack is added to the list of dates to be output.

      Optional inputd

      All maximum values are optional. If one is left unset, the corresponding workpack value will not be checked.

      If all maximum values are left unset, all matching workpacks for the property are returned.

  7. The output is JSON-encoded and returned.
