How to add a lunch break
Updated this week

Do you want to take a lunch break at noon and close your business for a while? Add a lunch break (or any other break) to your opening hours. Therefore, you will not receive any bookings at this time.

Opening hours settings

First, open the opening hours settings in the system. You can find it under the Business tab — My businessBusiness details. To set a lunch break, click Edit.

Adding a lunch break

After clicking the Edit button, you can see a week overview of the opening hours. Click Add Hours to create two separate time slots. The first refers to the time before the lunch break, and the second to the time after it.

So, if you have a lunch break from 12:00 to 12:30, you set this pause as follows:

  • first, set the opening hours to the time before the break – i.e., from 8:00 to 12:00,

  • then set the opening hours to the time after the break – i.e., from 12:30 to 16:00,

  • now you have created a gap between 12:00 and 12:30, within which the system will not allow bookings.

When you have set the breaks (you can do it only for a few days — for example, only for Tuesday and Thursday), remember to confirm the changes by clicking the Done button.

Below you can see that the lunch break is already set for Monday, but not for the other days:

After clicking the Done button, you will see the new opening hours, including the added lunch break. Confirm them once more by clicking Save changes.

Below you can see the set lunch break for Tuesday and Thursday in addition to Monday:
