Do you have a weekly rate, or just a midweek rate? Then you will first have to make a separate price type for this. After that, a number of restrictions will have to be set for each price type. We have written out these steps for your convenience:

We start with the bulk promotion, which you carry out by clicking on the pencil next to the name of the room type in the rates and availability. A managed rates pop-up will open and you will need to continue working from here. For some rates you will need several bulk actions as described below.

NOTE: Do you use different seasons? Then you need to perform the following actions in the period. So a high season from July 19th to August 23rd, then you need to select this period to perform the action.

What are the steps? Find the logic!

There is a logic in performing the steps. Each update has 3 steps that are performed in the same way for each rate. 

You first select all the days that do not affect the dates. For example, a weekend rate from Friday to Sunday includes the ma-di-woe-do-za and one thing we know with this weekend rate is that they are not bookable on these days. So you want to close them for check-in and check-out.
You select the day that check-in is possible. In this case the Friday. All other days are unselected. On this day you only check out (because that is not possible) and set your minimum length of stay.
You select the day that check-out is possible. In this case, the Sunday. All other days are unselected. On this day you only tick the check-in box (because that is not possible).

In the case of weekend rates (e.g. Friday to Sunday)

Step 1: Select Monday through Thursday and Saturday in the date picker and then close the check in and check out (you do this by selecting them).
Step 2: Select Friday and set a minimum stay of 2 nights (e.g. people must stay 2 nights). For these rates, select that the check out is closed.
Step 3: Select Sunday and close the check in (e.g. it is not possible to book for this fare on a Sunday check in).
