Services Available at Limited Hours (Service Schedule Add-on)

Important

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

The Service Schedule (Add-on) for Bookly enables you to restrict the hours during which each service is available within staff member's daily working hours.

This setting is specific to each service and interacts with the staff member's working hours. It creates an overlap between the service availability hours and the staff member's working hours, defining intervals during which the service can be provided.

Each service's schedule is configured as a one-time interval for each day of the week, with breaks throughout the day.

Setup

1. Purchase, download, install and activate the Service Schedule (Add-on) in Plugins.

2. Navigate to the Services section and select the service you want to customize. Then, go to the Schedule tab within the service settings.

3. Customize the availability hours for each service according to your preferences.

If you leave a service unchanged, it will remain available during all hours when the staff members providing that service are working.

Once the add-on is configured, all new bookings will consider the special service schedules when presenting available time slots to customers.

Integrate with the Special Days (Add-on)

When you have both the Special Days (Add-on) and the Service Schedule (Add-on) installed, you gain the ability to customize working hours for specific dates on the calendar, overriding the standard hours.

With this integration, you can adjust the days and hours when individual services are available for booking, offering more flexibility than the standard Special Days functionality, which applies changes to the entire staff member's schedule and all their services. You can even mark a service as completely unavailable for booking on specific days by selecting "OFF" in the time selection drop-down.

The standard functionality of Special Days remains intact. This means that staff members can also have their working hours adjusted on specific days, independent of services.

In cases where both the service and the staff member have special days set up for the same day, the system offers booking slots only if they align with both the service's and the staff member's working hours for that particular day.

Set up Service Schedule & Special Days combo

Here's how you determine dates during the year when each service is available:

1. Ensure that both the Service Schedule and Special Days add-ons are installed and activated.

2. In Services > Schedule, customize the dates and hours of availability for each service according to your preferences.
