Appointment Reservations Overview & Setup

By Robert | Updated





Reservations are currently modeled after salons and similar locations whose offerings revolve around providing services. Reservations through Revel are used to create services, associate employees (aka Service Providers in Reservations) with the particular services, assign commissions to employees and their services, and schedule appointments with customers for particular services. Table Service-based Reservations will be available in future Revel builds.


Management Console Setup

Please contact your Sales rep in purchasing this feature. Once enabled, follow the steps below.

In order to see any products for services in the Reservations tab, the products need to be marked as a service. To do this log into the Management Console.

  1. On the Management Console ([yoursubdomain], go to the Products tab. 
  2. Find the product you want to edit and click the icon in line with it:1.png
  3. On the Product Details page, click Clear Selections  and type Service in the search box. 
  4. Check the boxes next to Is Service and Service Duration so the settings appear on the right side of the screen.
  5. Double-click the Is Service setting box so a blue check mark appears.
  6. Fill out the Service Duration field with the time (in minutes) of this service. This will block that length of time on your reservations calendar anytime this service is booked.
