With OnceHub, you can automatically distribute bookings to Team members according to rules you define. Rules can be defined for Master pages using team or panel pages.
When you use a Master page with team or panel pages, you can also generate one-time links which are good for one booking only, eliminating any chance of unwanted repeat bookings. A Customer who receives the link will only be able to use it for the intended booking and will not have access to your underlying Booking page. One-time links can be personalized, allowing the Customer to pick a time and schedule without having to fill out the Booking form.
In this article, you'll learn about using Master pages with the team or panel page scenario.
To set up a Master page with team or panel pages, you must be a OnceHub Administrator.
Setting up a Master page with a team or panel page scenario
- Create a Master page by clicking the Plus button in the Master pages pane.
- In the Scenario field of the New Master page pop-up, select the Team or panel page scenario (Figure 1).
- Populate the pop-up with a Public name, Internal label, Public link, and an image if you choose. Then, click Save & Edit. You'll be redirected to the Master page Overview section to continue editing your settings.
- Go to the Event types and assignment section of the Master page.
- Click Add Event type.
- Select which Event types will be offered on your Master page (Figure 3). Master pages with team or panel pages can only include Event types configured to Automatic booking and Single sessions. Learn more about conflicting settings when using team or panel pages
- Next, use the Booking assignment drop-down to select who will provide your Event types. The Booking assignment can be a specific Booking page or a Resource pool.
- If your Event type requires multiple team members from your organization, use the Additional team members
drop-down to add them.
NoteThe same Resource pool cannot be selected as the Booking assignment and as the Additional team member in a single rule. Learn more about conflicting settings when using team or panel pages.
- Reorder the Event types to make sure they appear on your Master page in the order that you want. You can move a row up or down by clicking on the left side of the row and dragging to the position you want (Figure 4).
- Click Save.
Scenarios with team or panel pages
There are a wide variety of scenarios that team or panel pages allow you to create. Here are some of the most common.
One-on-one meetings with prospects and Customers
When you conduct one-on-one meetings with prospects and Customers, you may have multiple team members who are capable of conducting the meetings. For example, your Account Executives might conduct product demos, or your Customer Success Managers might conduct onboarding sessions.
Using team or panel pages, bookings can be automatically assigned to team members in a Resource pool. Bookings will be assigned according to the distribution method you choose for the pool, whether via Round robin, Pooled availability, or Pooled availability with priority.
Meetings with multiple team members simultaneously
You may offer meetings that need the participation of multiple team members from your organization. For example, a consulting firm might need a team of consultants to attend a meeting, or a university conducting admissions interviews might need multiple faculty members and professors to attend the interview.
With team or panel pages, you can create Panel meetings with multiple team members. Each Panel meeting has a Booking assignment that determines the owner of the meeting. You can select any number of Additional team members to participate in the meeting. You can select specific Booking pages to participate in your meetings, or Resource pools to automatically assign a team member. When Customers visit your Master page, they will only see availability for the possible panel combinations.
Scheduling one-off meetings using one-time links
When you use a Master page with team or panel pages, you can generate one-time links which you can send to your Customers to schedule bookings with you. One-time links are good for one booking only, eliminating any chance of unwanted repeat bookings. A Customer who receives the link will only be able to use it for the intended booking and will not have access to your underlying Booking page.
For example, you may have a Customer who wants to schedule a Support meeting to resolve a specific issue. However, you want to restrict access to your Support team because their time is limited. You can send this Customer a one-time link to schedule a booking for this specific issue.
After the Customer schedules the booking, they won't be able to use that one-time link to schedule bookings for any other issues.
TipYou can use the OnceHub for Gmail extension to schedule with general links directly from your Gmail account. You can generate links, copy them in a single click, and send them in an email.
