Note that some settings described below are available with the Bookly Pro (Add-on) installed and activated. The free version of Bookly has limited functionality.
These are a few crucial company-wide settings that you'll have to set up before publishing the booking form.
Settings > Company
Company name, logo, and address – to be included in emails.
Settings > Appointments > Default appointment status
Default status for newly booked appointments.
Settings > General > Time slot length
You can treat this as your standard block of time: the entire 24-h day will be divided into time slots with this length. All appointments will be scheduled as per these time slots.
For example, if you set time slot length as 15 min, clients will be offered to book even one-hour-long appointments at 10.00 or 10.15 or 10.30, etc. You can also set the Time slot length for each service separately in the Services section.
Settings > Business Hours
This will be the default working days and hours for all your staff (=> all appointments). Specify the hours for each team member in Staff Members > Schedule.
Settings > Payments > Currency
The price that you set up in Services has to be shown in a currency, and here's where you set it.
Settings > Purchase Code
Copy and paste here the purchase code that you got from CodeCanyon when buying the plugin. This will allow you to get updates of the plugin for free and, in case of any issues or difficulties, get customer service.
Settings > Logs
System-generated logs allow to record all actions with appointments in Bookly in a table. These logs can be useful for Bookly support team in case of unpredictable issues with appointments.
Settings > User Permissions
Here you set which WP roles will be able to manage and administrate Bookly.
