In order for your online bookings to work properly, you need to set your opening hours and operator hours in the Roster. This is to ensure that online bookings are made when you're open and when your staff is working.
In just a few clicks you can have your salon opening hours set for each day, and your staff (operator) hours ready to go.
Setting Your Salon Opening Hours
Go to Settings, then to Appointment Settings (on the right side panel). In the pop-up window scroll down to the bottom, and you'll see your Opening Hours.
Choose your opening hours for each day and tick Closed on the days you're not open.
This can also be done via your Roster page
Managing Public Holidays
Click the Manage Public Holidays to set up your public holiday dates. You'll be taken across to the Lists tab in Admin to create the Public Holidays.
Click New to create them on the right side panel.
On the right, give the public holiday a name and date, and click Save.
The new public holiday will be listed. Continue adding each one.
Now when you go to any of these public holiday dates in your Appointment book, they will be blocked out.
Setting Up Your Operator Hours
Now that your salon opening hours are done, you can set up your operators' hours.
Go to the Roster and click an operator name. In the pop-up window set the hours the operator works, tick and days that they are not working, and click Save.
Do this for each operator and you're done!
