Introduction to Booking pages

Booking pages are the basis of ScheduleOnce's robust and flexible scheduling approach. They are powerful and versatile pages through which bookings are made. Booking pages can be used with or without Event types, depending on your specific scheduling scenario.


Each Booking page is completely independent in its settings. Booking pages can be used with or without Event types, and can be included in a Master page. When included in a Master page, the availability of multiple Booking pages can be combined into one booking calendar. Learn more about Pooled availability

 

Each Booking page has the following sections:

Note: When your Booking page is associated with Event types (recommended), then the Scheduling options, Time slots, and Cancel/Reschedule policy sections are located on the Event type and not on the Booking page. The Booking form and Customer notifications sections can be located either on the Event type or the Booking page, depending on your Account -> SettingsLearn more
