Important: All add-ons for Bookly require Bookly Pro add-on installed and activated.
With Bookly Compound Services Add-on, you can combine existing services with spare time to create a separate complex service that can be booked by your clients as any ordinary appointment.
Compound services will be added to the Services drop-down menu in your online booking form just like other services. All the client has to do is to pick up a date and time from the list of available time slots that have already been calculated by Bookly system to accommodate all of the appointment segments.
Each service within a complex appointment can be performed by an individual service provider who will be booked only for their part of the service.
Customers are not able to choose staff members for each part of the compound service. The system displays and allows to choose an employee only for the first service within the complex appointment, other employees are assigned automatically.
