New feature: Custom fields to ask clients additional information

You can now ask for additional information when a client schedules their appointment.

We’ve also added custom notices where you can provide additional business policies or information for the service they are scheduling.

Full documentation here.

Note: Although you can add as many custom fields to your scheduling details form as you’d like, we recommend a small number of vital questions so people aren’t discouraged from scheduling.

FIVE CUSTOM FIELDS TYPES

Custom fields can be set to be required or optional.

Single-line input field - Asks a question that allows for a single line of text for quick, simple answers

Classes

We have a new feature that will let you create classes, group appointments (appointments with multiple clients), and workshops.

Here’s a quick preview:

Services now have a new option to make them a class.

create-class

Once you have a class, you can schedule them on your calendar just like you would a regular appointment.

You can add clients. (They will get automatically notified of their reservation.)

And you can remove clients. (They will automatically get notified of the cancellation.)

Clients can also schedule themselves in any upcoming classes that have openings.

Schedule Class

Finally, we have an advanced feature, where you can let clients schedule new classes themselves. This way they can join an existing class, or create a new class when there is available time on the calendar.

Flex Time

We added a new way for you to manage your schedule. We call it Flex Time.

It is now easy to take the day off, or even open up a day that you typically  don’t work.

The image below illustrates how you might open up one Saturday between 10am and 2pm.

Works Hours

We also made it much easier to adjust your overall work hours. You can now do this directly from your calendar.

That’s it. Easy.
