One important thing you need to set up right at the beginning is specific conditions for online booking.
You can find them in the Business tab — Scheduling — Booking rules.
The Booking rules page is divided into several sections:
1. Online booking
Booking time limits — Set how far in advance can your clients book a service. You can set the earliest and the latest possible time for creating new bookings.
Booking frequency — Specify the time interval between bookings that appears on the Booking Website. Set the time intervals at which the available booking slot will display to your clients.
Booking permissions — Set which clients can make a booking. You can choose from the categories: Everyone, Existing clients, Clients with a pass, New clients and clients with a pass, Signed up clients.
Manual booking approval — Decide whether you want to approve each new booking manually or if the system does it for you automatically. For manual approvals, the toggle button must be green.
2. Cancellation — Set how far in advance your clients can cancel their bookings. Apart from the specific time range, there is a possibility to pick: Never or Anytime.
3. Reminders — Set whether the client receives a reminder notification before the appointment or not, along with how far in advance this reminder is sent. This setting is especially useful for bookings planned in advance — a message can ensure that the client does not forget about it.
Finally, remember to Save changes.
