 An example
As seen in the picture above. The tool responsible has created a new blocking for a tool during the period 2010-10-05 to 2010-12-31. During that time the tool cannot be booked in advance during 10:00 to 17:00 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. These days users will be able to make bookings between 10:00 to 17:00 from 06:00 (4 hours before 10:00). Tool blocking does not apply to tool responsible, administrators and members of the service project. They can book at any time.
