Now that you have your provider and scheduling page set up, getting added to a form will ensure that on submission the person filling out the form will be presented with a calendar date and time picker to choose an appropriate date and time. 

  1. Open the form you want to use for your appointment

    • The event details will appear in the bookers email, ensuring they have all the information required

  5. Like other submission events, Scheduling submission events can be run conditionally, configure the conditional logic to ensure bookings only occur when needed. 

Create Booking

Now that you're all set up, anyone who completes your form will be able to make a booking in your configured calendar. 

When a booking is made 2 emails are sent. One to the person who made the booking and the other to the configured email address from step 1. This emails contain:

  • What: The Scheduling page name
  • Where: The set location
  • Start date and time 
  • End date and time
  • any event details (only the booker)

Reschedule Appointment

As part of the of the appointment booking the person making the booking is able to reschedule the meeting. 

Simply click the reschedule button in the confirmation email to open up the picker and select a new date and time that better suits you. 

Cancel Appointment

Both the appointment runner and the person making the booking can cancel the booking if it is no longer required. 

When canceling a reason for cancelation will need to be entered, an email will be sent to the corresponding person containing the cancelation reason. 

Multi Calendar Events

Often a booking can be made on a number of available calendars for example booking hot desk, rooms, or pool lanes. This can be done using multiple calendars. If multiple calendars are configured for the scheduling page then the scheduler will continue to allow users to select the same date and time as long as it is available on at least one of the calendars.
