Limit the hours within staff’s daily working hours when each service is available - with the Service Schedule add-on, available for purchase here.
The setting is service-specific and interacts with staff’s working hours in such a way that service availability hours and staff working hours overlap, thus creating an interval within each staff member’s day when the service can be provided.
A service’s schedule is set up as one time interval for each day of the week (starting with v1.1), with breaks during the day.
Integrate with the Special Days add-on
If both add-ons are installed, you can override standard working hours for specific dates on the calendar by tweaking the days and hours when individual services are available for booking (vs standard Special Days functionality, which applies them to entire staff member’s schedule and all of their services).
The standard functionality of Special Days also remains, which means that staff can also have their working hours tweaked on specific days (with no dependence on services).
Now, what happens on days for which both the service in question and the staff member have a special day set up (i.e. for both the service and the staff member the availability hours have been tweaked using the Special Days + Service Schedule mix)? A slot is only offered to clients if it’s included in both the service’s and staff member’s working hours during that day.
2. In Services, create custom availability hours for each service.
By leaving a service unchanged, you’ll be keeping it available at all hours that the staff members providing that service are working.
Once the add-on is set up, all new bookings will take into account the special service schedules when offering available time slots to customers.
Set up Service Schedule & Special Days combo:
Here's how you determine dates during the year when each service is available:
- Make sure you've got both Service Schedule and Special Days add-ons installed and enabled.

Special Hours add-on - with this add-on, you can also charge differently at various hours during the day.
