Third-party booking working documents

The community group is currently working on developing a set of specifications and best practices to allow people who have discovered opportunities to be active to book places to attend an event, or hire a facility.

This post provides a list of the working documents that are currently being developed by the community group.

Discussion documents and reports

  • Supporting OpenActive in your platform – provides guidance for existing platforms about adding support for the initiative to their products. It includes support for publishing open data and some general requirements around third-party booking.
  • Exploring requirements for a booking API (google doc) – provides a summary of a face-to-face workshop whose aim was to collect use cases and requirements from both platforms and innovators looking to benefit from using a third-party booking API.
  • Booking use cases and requirements (google doc) – documents all of the use cases and requirements that have been raised by the community, with an indication of whether they are in scope for our initial work.

Draft documents

The current issue list for the booking specification can be found on github. Please file feedback or comments in this repository.
