Hostfully PMP recognizes 3 types of leads.
BLOCK is only to block the availability. It's a typical CRUDL resource related to a property.
INQUIRY and BOOKING on the other hand embed a lot of business logic.
Inquiry goes through a workflow of actions to confirm it into a booking. Once inquiry becomes a booking, there's no way to turn it back into an inquiry. Such booking can only be cancelled if needed.
The diagram below illustrates the workflow of inquiries and bookings.
