Note about work hours
Work hours are your range of availability and not necessarily your office hours. Clients do not see your work hours on the scheduler. They see available appointment times based on your set work hours.
For example, your office hours might be 9:00 am to 5:00 pm but you might regularly take an appointment at 5:00 pm that lasts past your office hours. You'll want to set your work hours to support the appointment time and the duration of that appointment.
If you offer a 5:00 pm appointment time for a 1 hour service, you'll want to set your work hours starting at 9:00 am and ending at 6:00 pm.
Per day work hours (Flex time)
More information: Flex time/daily overrides
More information: Flex time/daily overrides in the mobile app
Flex time is an override that allows you to adjust your work hours/availability for a specific day.
This is useful for:
- changing your work hours for a single day without affecting your standard work hours
- opening availability for a day that was previously closed
- taking a day off

Blocking out time with Personal Appointments
More information: Personal appointments
More information: Repeating personal appointments
"Personal" appointments block time out of your schedule when you are unavailable to offer services.
You can block out time for breaks or lunch; for staff or management meetings; for personal engagements (doctor's appointments, sports games, etc.); and more.

Repeating personal appointments
You can also block out repeating blocks of time for things like vacations, leaves of absence, split work days, and more.
