Last cancellation date
A booking cannot be cancelled online after a certain amount of time is left until the appointment. Especially useful if you’re using online payment. The capability is disabled by default.
Bookly Settings > General > Minimum time requirement prior to canceling or Services > Edit > Advanced tab if you want to set this value for each service separately.
How late before the actual appointment do you want your clients to be able to book with you? Set it up by hours, days, or weeks. Disabled by default.
Bookly Settings > General > Minimum time requirement prior to booking or Services > Edit > Advanced tab if you want to set this value for each service separately.
How far ahead will your clients be able to book?
The maximum number of days in the future that your clients can book appointments for. Disabled by default.
Bookly Settings > General > Number of days available for booking.
Display available times in client's time zone
If this option is enabled, the time slots will be converted according to the time zone where the customer is located. In email notifications, the time of appointments will also be in the client's time zone.
Bookly Settings > General > Display available time slots in client's time zone.
Sometimes confusion happens. To avoid this, you can add a time zone switcher right to your booking form. To enable this feature, go to Appearance > Time tab and check the box next to the Show time zone switcher.
Show the nearest time slot available
If you enable the Show only the nearest timeslot option in Bookly, then all existing time slots will be hidden for your customers except for the nearest free time in the staff schedule.
If you enable Show only the first timeslot in each day option, all available time slots for a staff member will be hidden except for the first nearest free time in their schedule every day.
