Instant Booking Schema Color
This is where you chose your preferred color and change the color scheme of the booking page.
The instant booking page displays your available time slot that you have defined in time range setting. The time slots for past days are not available for selection. Current or future time slots are available. Currently we do allow overbooking of jobs in particular time slot. That means you can get job request for the same date/same time slot multiple times. The idea is to let you get the customer job request, which you can later reschedule and not lose the business. In future we will update this schedule board availability where you will have more control about availability.
You can control the time range that will be displayed in the online page. For example you may have multiple time slots in a day like from 8am to 10am, 10am to 12pm etc. You can keep these to not show in online page instead create another time range which is 8 am to 5 pm and that’s where your booking comes in.
In this page you collect your customer and job information. When user submits the information , a new customer and an associated unassigned job gets created in your Service Works account. You can see this job on your schedule board and All jobs page.
