Single consultant working in multiple locations (cities, suburbs, studios ...) in Bookeo Appointments

Bookeo Appointments lets you offer your customers services in different locations: different cities, studios, and so on. Let's say that you work in Manhattan on Mondays and Tuesdays and in Brooklyn from Wednesday to Friday.


If you want your customers to select a service, then the specific location when they make a booking, follow the instructions below.

 


                                          


Step 1 - Set up an option for your locations


You can create a multiple choice additional option to let your customers pick a location:

1. Go to Settings>Services offered and additional options

2. Go to the Additional options tab

3. click on the New option button to create an option for your locations. 

4. Create an option type the customers picks one of available choices.

 

 


5. Input a name, for example "city", "studio", etc. and description (optional) and do NOT tick the "Duration" checkbox.





6. Go to the Choices section to create all your locations. Input a name, for example "Manhattan", and a description, for example the address.


 


Step 2 - Set the availability of your locations

To set the availability of this location go to the Availability tab.

A. Set  general availability:
From the scroll down menu, set

  • available hours as the same availability as the hours of the business (set in Settings>Time settings)

      
        

 

  • or use a specific schedule for this location, for each day of the week. In the screenshot below, the location is available on Monday and Tuesday, from 9am to 6am.

        
          



 

B. Set special availability, restricted availability or unavailability

  • you can define special time slots during which this location is available. This is useful, for example, to set the resource as available on specific dates, or occasionally at night, besides the general availability.


           

 

  • you can set a restricted availability (i.e. only in December) or when this resource is NOT available (for locations, it could be not available for renovations...)
