How this article is structured:
1. A short introduction of the account basics needed in order to be online bookable
Create at least one resource under Management -> Resources. Set the booking times and activate it for online booking.
Create at least one service under Management -> Services and link it to your resource.
Integrate the booking widget.
We've made it possible for customers to book with you via a variety of channels. This makes it as easy as possible for them to self-schedule in the way that suits them best, plus being available across multiple channels is a really nice way of marketing your business! Here's where you can add a booking button or link to your Booking Widget:
your website and/or landing pages
your Facebook Page (Facebook requires that you have 2,000 likes to activate this option)
your TIMIFY Profile Page
You can either integrate the Booking Widget into your web page, or just link to it - this is a good option to be included also in your email signature. You can even create a QR code that you embed on a flyer or other print materials - perfect for a business card or if you're exhibiting at an event, for example.
You'll find the link to your Profile Page (which has your booking widget in-built), plus instructions on how to integrate a booking button to your website, Facebook page and CMS, under Booking Setup -> Settings.
2. The basics are set! Activate online booking now
Now you need to activate online booking for your account, and this couldn't be easier: simply click the "Online Booking" button in the bottom left corner and watch it turn green. Online booking is activated!
3. Tips and helpful things to know
If your customers are not able to book an appointment, always check first if the "Online Booking" is set to green.
If all your services and resources are set offline, then the booking widget is not online. Set at least one resource and one service to online bookable, so the widget works (Point 1).
