Introduction to general and one-time links

Once you've finished setting up your Booking pages and Master pages, you're ready to start receiving bookings. ScheduleOnce offers a wide range of sharing and publishing options that will help your leads and Customers connect with you and your team.

Accessing Links

Our sharing options allow you to send booking links to Customers to schedule with you, while our publishing options allow you to place scheduling calls-to-action on your website or landing page. Your Customers can schedule with you via Booking pages embedded directly into your website.

You can access the Share & Publish section by clicking Share & Publish in the top navigation bar (Figure 1).

Sharing your booking links

Each Booking page and Master page has its own unique Public link that can be shared with your prospects and Customers. The links that you share can either be general or personalized

The simplest way to share your pages is by using General links, which can be sent by email, added to your email signature, or added to any other clickable element. General links require your Customers to identify themselves by filling in their personal details on a Booking form during the booking process.

You can also use the OnceHub for Gmail extension to schedule with Personalized links directly from your Gmail account. You can generate Personalized links, copy them in a single click, and send them in an email.

Personalizing the scheduling experience

You can choose to personalize the scheduling experience for your prospects and Customers, so that they will only have to pick a time without having to provide any information that you already have. The Booking form can either be prepopulated with their details or skipped altogether.

The benefits to personalizing the booking process include:

  • Saving your Customers the need to fill out their information, which you already have.
  • Increasing conversion rates by saving time and reducing the number of steps it takes to book.
  • Ensuring that a lead or Customer always registers with the same email, which will help you avoid CRM duplicate records.

Links can be personalized in any of the following ways:

Changing Booking page and Master page links

Booking page links and Master page links are used in all of ScheduleOnce's Share & Publish options. In some cases, you may want to change the link that Customers use, such as when a Booking page is reassigned to a different User.

Using ScheduleOnce one-time links

When you use a Rule-based assignment Master page with Dynamic rules, you can generate one-time links which you can send to your Customers to book 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.
