Since its inception in 2006, ScheduleOnce has gained valuable experience across various scheduling scenarios. As a result, we've adopted a two-dimensional modeling approach that allows customization of both Booking pages and Event types. This approach is unique in the industry and provides a flexible and powerful solution for our Customers.
There are three ways to offer multiple meeting types using Event types, Booking pages, and Master pages:
Accept appointments for yourself
If you accept appointments for yourself, Customers come to your Booking page and book appointments with you automatically or with your approval. If you offer only one meeting type, you can use an Event type and link it to your Booking page.
For example, let’s say you offer a 60-minute tax return preparation session for a fee of $100. Create an Event type, customize the settings to meet your requirements and associate it with a Booking page.
Offer different appointment types on your Booking page
If you offer multiple meeting types which all have the same availability and same location, then all you need is one Booking page with multiple Event types linked to it. Each Event type can be a different meeting type with its own settings. You can configure the Scheduling options, Time slots, Booking form, Customer notifications and the Payment and Cancel/Reschedule policies per Event type.
For example, you may offer a 15-minute introductory session for free, a 30-minute online consultation session for $50 with a lenient reschedule/cancellation policy, and an hour long face-to-face consultation for $100 with a strict reschedule/cancellation policy.
Use both Event types and Booking pages together
For example, let's say you're providing Event types in three locations and you're in different locations during different days of the week. Define the Event types that you provide and set each Booking page to be a location. You can set up your scheduling process so that Users will first select an Event type and then a location, or vice versa. In this specific scenario, you'll create the Booking pages and the Event types, link the Event types to the Booking pages and then link the Booking pages to a Master page.
