< Service Item Time Blocks < Adding a Time Block

You can add as many time blocks as you wish and choose your own intervals. For example, you could give your clients the option to choose their service in half hourly, hourly or 2-hourly intervals, such as:

 

9:00 am - 11:00 am

11:00 am - 1:00 pm

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm and so on.

 

If you want to offer clients more control over the time they select for the service, you can offer smaller time blocks:

 

9:00 am - 9.30am

9:30 am - 10:00 am

  

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Admin > Services > Service Items > Advanced

STEP 4

 

To make life easier when scheduling, the service can be scheduled at a time represented by the mid point of the time block. However the scheduler is further able to change the specific time of the service to indicate to the sitter an earlier or a later time to start the service within the time block. You can amend the time when adding a service to an order or change it using the "edit services" function if you want it to be carried out at a different time to the default.​

How do I default the time to the middle of the time block?

 

  • Check the box by "Default Time to Middle of Time Block".

  • When you have finished, click "Update".
