Schedulista is designed to support a regular weekly work schedule, but you are able to adjust your availability by day and block time out of your schedule. You can manage your availability through the web dashboard, as well as the Schedulista mobile app.
Key aspects of availability
- Availability is the amount of time on your schedule you wish to offer services to your clients
- Manage availability with a regular weekly schedule, daily overrides ("Flex time"), and personal appointments
- "Work hours" refers to your availability not necessarily your business hours of operation
Once your availability is set, you can define appointment times during your work hours on the Scheduling Policies page in settings.
Note about work hours
Work hours are your range of availability and not necessarily your business hours of operation. 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 to end at 6:00 pm.
Set your regular work schedule
More information: Setting a regular work schedule
Set your work hours for each day of the week you are regularly available each week. If you don't have a regular weekly schedule, you can set all days to "Out".

Flex time daily overrides
More information: Flex time daily overrides
Flex time daily overrides allow you to adjust your work hours on a specific day without affecting your regular work schedule, take a day off, or make available a specific day you normally have off.
Read more information how to set daily overrides directly on your calendar here.
Block 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.
