Businesses can manage how and when clients can book appointments online by setting the Scheduling Rules, located within the Online Booking section in the main business settings. Scheduling Rules determine the time period during which a client may self-book.
- Minimum Lead Time is how close to the appointment time a client can book their appointment. For example, if set at 24 hours, a clients will only see appointment times that are available in or after 24 hours from the current time. Businesses that wish to accept last-minute online bookings should set a low value for the minimum notice.
- Maximum Lead Time is how far into the future a client can book their appointment. For example, if set at 3 months, clients will not be shown any available appointment times after 3 months from the current date.
