How to Book an Appointment Online
1. Once a customer clicks the button or link to the web appointment portal, it will prompt to select the service, the provider, and the date. Then a chart of available times will appear to select. If no provider is selected, it will display all providers for the selected service. (To set available time slots in the Web Appointments page Click here.)
2. After selecting a service and time, a window will prompt for the customer to sign in. If a returning customer, they can enter in their phone number or email. If a first time visitor, they must create a new profile or login to their Facebook.
3. Once the appointment has been booked, a final confirmation page is displayed for the customer. The calendar on the iPad POS Platform will display an appointment for the booked time slot shortly. Also the time slot will no longer be selectable on the web portal.
