To configure appointments (one-on-one sessions with clients) for your business, there are three main things you'll need to:
*Set Up your User Profile for Appointments
*Add at least One Appointment "Product"
*Configure your Appointment Business Settings
Set Up Your User Profile for Appointments
To set your professional's work hours, head to the Employees link, choose an employee and click 'Edit'. You'll see the following screen where you can choose if the professional can book appointments, set their work hours, and choose the products they can book appointments for.
There are a few selections here you should make note of:
- "Is this professional available for appointments" - If you set this to NO, then the professional will NOT be able to book/receive appointments. If yes, then they can!
Set Appointment Work Hours
Once YES is selected, you can set their work hours by using the pull downs, and choose the products they can book appointments for. Note: To have them available for ALL product types, leave it blank. Otherwise, if your trainers have specialties or can only book for certain types of products, you can set them here.
Add At Least ONE Appointment Product
New for appointments is product duration, which is a required field for new appointments. When making a new class or appointment, you'll enter the length as showing in the screen below:
- Classes - You can now set a specific length for classes, in the product section.
- Appointments - You can set a length for an appointment, and when to start the classes.
Also new to the product creation screen is the choice to create an appointment OR a class. Decide which type of product you'd like to create, as they are specific. Appointment (individual class) or classes (group class).
The drop in price (as opposed to membership price) is now optional, you can use the slider to turn on or off a different drop in price.
Configure Your Appointment Business Settings
Finally, once you've set your business hours, defined the hours and products for your professional employees, and updated your products, you're ready to turn on appointments. Head to the 'Administration' page, and choose 'Appointment Configuration'. Turn on appointments, and select the option when you want your appointments to be bookable (quarter hour, half hour or top of the hour). Save and your appointments will be up and ready for booking!
