Step two: Set your availability 

Once you’re into your appointment management dashboard, you want to sort out when you’re free to meet. 

From the home menu, click “Scheduling”. 

Use “Availability” to set when you’re available for appointments. You can set regular hours and also override hours if you have one-off events. 

Step three: Booking appointments 

When clients book time with you, the days will be highlighted on the home page of your dashboard. 

From the “Scheduling” tab, you can also set what time of events people can book with you. 

Click “New Type of Service” and from here enter the details of what you want to allow people to book. This includes the name, duration, price (if applicable) and category.
