Services you are offering clients are a basic component of your schedule. Without defining them for your scheduler, clients will not be able to book appointments.

There are three essential elements needed for a service:

  • Service name - What the service is called
  • Duration - The length of the service for appointments
  • Provider(s) - Who is offering the service

Beyond that, there are additional settings to help you define the type of service, the availability of the service, and information about the service you'd like clients to know.

Adding a service

(1) Go to Settings > Services / Classes / Events

(2) Click Add Service to create a new service

(3) Enter a Service name to identify it for clients

(4) (optional) Set a Price for your service. Price will be in the native currency for the country you set in your Business Details.

Note: A price must be entered to take payments from clients online. Learn more about payments here.

(5) For the Duration, select the length of your service for an appointment

(6) (optional) Adding Setup or Cleanup time creates breaks in between appointments to allow you time to reset for the next appointment or time to travel, if necessary.

Read more on setup and cleanup time here.

(7) (optional) Choose a Category to organize your service under on your service list

More on creating and managing categories here.

(8) (optional) Add a service Description to tell clients about your service or offer specific information, such as items necessary for their appointment, the address of a specific event, or deposit information.

(9) In the Providers Offering Service section, check the box next to each provider (user) you want to offer the service to clients

(10) Click Save to make your service active
