In Schedulista, custom fields allow you to customize the booking form in your online scheduler. With various field types, you can provide information or ask clients for a variety of information necessary for their appointment.
Custom notices, in particular, are a way to let clients know more about your business, service(s), or scheduling or payment policies as they book.
Benefits of custom notices
- The format of the custom notice provides a bold header and a text field to create a section on the booking form similar to the Cancellation Policy section
- You can add links to direct clients to information or for clients to download or upload forms or files
- Stylize text to draw clients to important notifications
Notes on links and stylizing text
You can use limited HTML markup to add links or style the text in the custom notice.
When you paste a URL (ex. https://www.schedulista.com) into the notice body field and save, it will automatically convert to a link on the scheduler. You can also use the HTML anchor tags (<a>) to hyperlink words. (e.g., <a href="https://www.schedulista.com">Click here</a> = Click here)
To style your text, the following markup is available: Bold (<b>), Strong Importance (<strong>), Italicize (<i>), Emphasize (<em>), Underline (<u>), Strikethrough (<s>)
Note: Schedulista does not host any images, documents, or files to
download. Schedulista also does not have storage for clients to upload
files while booking. You can include links from other websites or cloud
storage services to download or upload.
