Imagine you are a multi-location operation.
Say you want to restrict your customers to only be able to book inventory online based on their home locations.
Here is a working example of how that works.
First of all, ensure you have the basics set up.
- Multi-Location Mode
- Set to 'location-based' mode
- Ensure each Product Family has a Home Location set.
Online Booking Wizard (OBW)
- ensure you have booking slots OFF
- ensure you have checked 'Multi-Location show stores checkbox'
Next up you will want to configure an Online Channel for each of your locations:
This will then allow you to create an online channel to restrict inventory to only those Locations

Issues with this approach;
Asking people to configure Offering Channels is an added level of complexity
It makes the location dropboxes on the OBW redundant and misleading
