Chain Appointments Add-on

Important: All add-ons for Bookly require Bookly PRO installed and activated.

The Chain Appointments (Add-on) works very much like Cart (Add-on), with the only difference that it looks for a time slot that can accommodate all services chosen by a customer (vs several independent time slots for each service with Cart).

At the first step of the booking process, the customer can press the Add service button and pick multiple services.


They are then offered time slots when all services can be provided sequentially during a single visit with employees chosen at the first step of booking.


1. Purchase the add-on here, install it, and activate it in the Plugins section of your WordPress dashboard.

2. In Bookly menu > Appearance > Service tab, make sure that the box next to the 'Show chain appointments' option is checked.


The Calendar and Appointment list will show bookings as separate appointments.



But the Payment list will bundle chain appointments as they were paid for as a package in one transaction.




If you want to send a single Email/SMS notification for the entire booking (for all order), rather than a separate notification for every appointment booked, use the {cart_info} code in relevant templates (New booking combined notification) when you configure the automated messages in the notifications area.

Note: Currently, it's not possible to book services with the length of more than 1 day and less than 1 day together in one order. The Time step will display "No time is available for selected criteria" for such scenarios.


The service duration should be divisible by the time slot length. Otherwise, the services cannot be booked in a chain. For example, if you want to book a chain with 3 services – 30 min, 1 hour and 2 hours – the time slot length should be set as 5, 10, 15, or 30 min.
