General Settings

Within the framework of our platform, the General Settings section stands out as a crucial and versatile tool that empowers you to seamlessly configure and manage vital information pertaining to your business.

Time slot length

With this setting option, you can set the default length of the time slot. We want to briefly summarize what this option means:

Imagine you chose a time slot length of 10 minutes. When customers make a new appointment, they will see times up to 10 minutes, for example, 10:30 am, 10:40 am, 10:50 am, 11:00 pm, 11:10 pm, etc.
This value is the default value. You can refer to the default value when you add the service or select the individual timeslot.
Default value: 5 minutes but you can set as you wish.

Set slot length as service duration

If you activate this option, the Time slot length option will override. As a result, slot length will be equal to the duration of the service. For instance, if the duration of the service is 1 hour when customers make a booking, they will see time at 1 hour intervals: 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm, etc.
Default value: Disabled.

Minimum time requirement prior to booking

With this option, you can appropriate that your customers can make a booking at least a few days in advance. For instance, you want your customers to book before a minimum of 2 das. In this case, you will select 2 days in this option. If this option is not needed, just keep it disabled.
Default value: Disabled.

Limited booking days

With this option, you can choose how long your customers can book later. For instance, by typing in 100 days, you’ll be able to make sure that your customers can’t add bookings after 100 days.
Default value: 365 days.

Week starts on

In some countries, the week starts on Sunday, in some countries, on Monday. You can change which day of the week starts on your calendar according to your country and your choice.

Date format

The date format also varies by country. You can set the date format according to your choice.

Time format

You can set the time format to be 24 hours or 12 hours.

Default appointment status

When a customer adds a new booking, you can show here what will be the default value. If you need managers to confirm it and specify the issue after your customers make a booking, in this option, you can select pending status. As a result, when the customer adds a new booking, it will run into Dashboard. And after the manager specifies details, that appointment will be approved or rejected.
Default value: Approved.

Show timeslots in client time-zone

When you use this feature, your customers will see your working hours according to their time zone. This feature allows you to do global services.

Allow admins to book appointments outside working hours

If you activate this feature, you can create an appointment for any date you want outside of your working hours while creating a manual appointment in your admin panel.

With BookOn you can also remove branding on your booking widget.
