Schedulista is designed to make your services continually available based on your availability. You can limit which times of the day and which days of the week your services are offered by setting specific appointment times. You can also set specific times for specific services.

If you need to make a service available only for a specific period of time, the Limited Time Event feature for services allows you to limit the availability of a service between two dates, or even just to a single date.

Benefits of limited time events

  • Provide special offers or discounted rates for short periods of time

  • Define seasonal services

  • Set the start date of a service that is not yet available

  • Set the end date of a service being retired

  • Limit a service to a single day of availability

The Limited Time Event feature defines the dates that a service is available to book rather than when the booking can be done for a service.

For example, if an offer is set from 1/19 to 2/19, only appointment times between those two dates will show as available to select. The act of booking can be done at any time leading up to and through those dates per your scheduling policies.
