General Settings

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 > General > Method to include Bookly JavaScript and CSS files on the page

All pages – Bookly JavaScript and CSS files will be loaded on every frontend page of your website, regardless of whether there is a Bookly form or not.

Pages with Bookly form – Bookly JavaScript and CSS files will be loaded only on the pages where Bookly form is present.

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.
