Event types first (Booking pages second)

Master pages with Event types first (Booking pages second) allow Customers to first select which Event type they prefer. They can then choose a Booking page from the ones that are associated with that Event type. Finally, the Customer schedules the meeting. The pre-existing associations between Booking pages and Event types determine which Event types are offered on your Master page.

Tip

If you would like to generate one-time links which are good for one booking only, you should use a Master page using Rule-based assignment with Dynamic rules.

One-time links eliminate 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. Learn more about one-time links

In this article, you'll learn about Master pages with Event types first.

The Customer flow

Figure 1: Customer flow for Event types first 

With Event types first, the Customer first selects the Event type they prefer and then chooses from the Booking pages that provide that Event type. 

After selecting a Booking page, the Customer is presented with the availability of the Booking page they selected. They can choose a date and slot and schedule the meeting.

Note If there is only one Event type included in the Master page, the Customer skips selecting an Event type, moving directly to choosing a Booking page. 

If only one Booking page provides the selected Event type, the Customer skips selecting a Booking page, moving directly to choosing a time slot.
