Using Resources to Manage Service Availability
You can use a resource schedule to manage service availability. This can be helpful if your business only offers certain services on specific days.
You can also use a resource schedule for special events such as Valentine’s Day to make sure certain services are only available during specific times.
Using a resource schedule to manage service availability
In the following example, we will create a day-specific resource and add it to a service that is only offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Begin by going to Settings > Resources and creating a resource group called Day-Specific Resources, for example.
Add Tuesday and Thursday as resources and select No limit of appointments for both.
Select the Tuesday resource and select the Schedule tab. Select Only available on specific days/times.
Add a repeating shift on Tuesdays to specify when the service is available.
Select the Thursday resource and select the Schedule tab. Select Only available on specific days/times.
Add a repeating shift on Thursdays to specify when the service is available.
Go to Settings > Services and select the service that is only offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Select the Resources tab and select Add resource requirement.
Select the Day-Specific Resources group. Select Specific resources and enable the Tuesday and Thursday toggles. This will require the service to be booked on either Tuesday or Thursday. Select Save.
To hide the Tuesday and Thursday resources from the calendar, you can hide the Day-Specific Resources group in Settings > Resources.
Learn how you can create or update a service so that it only requires a resource and not a staff member.
