There are a number of reasons to limit the maximum time slots offered per day, including:
- Looking busier than you really are
- An effort not to overwhelm Customers with too many choices
- Preventing Customers from selecting adjacent time slots in Booking with approval mode
If you want to limit the maximum number of available time slots per day, you can do this by going to Setup -> click your Booking page -> Time slot settings.
When you limit the number of time slots per day, ScheduleOnce distributes these time slots as evenly as possible across the availability set for that Booking page.
For instance: You have availability from 9 AM to 5 PM. You want to limit the number of time slots offered to 3 time slots per day. Time slots will be offered at 9 AM, 12 PM, and 3 PM. If someone books the 9 AM time slot, this time slot disappears and a new time slot will be offered to the next Customer at 9:30 AM.
If you don’t want this setting to affect you, simply keep it at its maximum: All time slots.
NoteThis setting does not limit the amount of appointments that can be booked on any given day. Rather, it affects the amount of time slots from which a Customer may choose when selecting the time for their booking. If you want to put an absolute limit on the number of bookings per day, this is available through another setting.
