Announcing Appointment Setup and Cleanup Time

Do you need extra time before an appointment to prepare? Do you need extra time at the end of an appointment to clean up?

As of today we have a new feature: Appointment Setup and Cleanup Time.

Online Appointment Scheduling - Add Setup and Cleanup Time

You can optionally configure setup and cleanup time per service.

Note: If you were previously including cleanup time in the total duration of your service (as a workaround), you can now take advantage of cleanup time.

Neither set up nor cleanup time will be revealed to your clients. An example:

You offer a “60-minute hot stone massage” that requires an additional 15 minutes to set up and 15 minutes to cleanup.

Your calendar is free from 1:00 pm on.

Your client will see a free time slot starting at 1:15 pm. If your client schedules this time, there will be a new appointment on your calendar that lasts from 1:15 pm until 2:15 pm, with a 15 minute buffer surrounding it.

We have had a fair amount of request for this feature, especially from massage therapists and from anyone needing to include travel time in their appointment.

As always, keep the ideas coming.
