Booking forms allow you to collect information from your Customers when they make a booking. You can use the Booking forms editor to customize the information that you want to collect from your Customers during the booking process.
The Booking forms editor is an advanced WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. You can choose the questions on the Booking form and the order that they're presented in, giving you complete control over your Customer’s booking experience.
Creating and editing Booking forms
All OnceHub Administrators can access the Booking forms editor. On the Booking page on the left, select the Booking forms editor on the left.
You can edit the Default Booking form (Figure 1), create a new Booking form, or copy and edit an existing Booking form. When you create a Booking form, you can edit, add, and remove the content in the middle editing pane.

The Fields library
The Fields library pane contains all of the fields available to be used on the Booking form. This is where you add fields to your Booking form and create your own Custom fields.
- System fields: System fields include seven standardized fields that are included on every new Booking form by default. Learn more about System fields
- Custom fields: If you want to collect information that isn't covered in the System fields, you can use one of OnceHub's out-of-the-box Custom fields, or create your own Custom field. Learn more about Custom fields
Using information collected on your Booking form
The information you collect on the Booking form can be used in the following ways.
Personalize email and SMS notifications to Users and Customers
When a Customer makes a booking, an email is sent to you with the Customer’s name, their email address, and any other information from other fields that you chose to include on the Booking form.
The Customer will receive a personalized confirmation email with the details of the appointment they've just made. You can use data collected on the Booking form to create custom notifications.
