Clients rescheduling appointment
To reschedule an appointment, a client must first cancel their existing appointment. Then, they can schedule an appointment for the new date & time they are interested in.
Note: If you do not allow clients to cancel their appointment online, they will not be able to reschedule an appointment themselves.
(1) In the appointment confirmation and reminder emails clients receive, there is a link to cancel their appointment.
(2) The client then confirms their cancellation. They can add a message to explain, if they choose.
(3) On the summary page, they click the "Schedule another appointment" button to set their new appointment.
The client will receive a cancellation notification email and a new appointment confirmation email. You will receive cancellation and new appointment notifications.
Note: If a client tries to reschedule an appointment past the threshold of your cancellation policy (e.g., trying to cancel 10 hours before their appointment when your policy is set to 24 hours prior to an appointment), the cancel link will not work. The client will have to contact you directly to reschedule.
