Making sure you are the Booking page Owner or Editor

Booking notifications are unique for every ScheduleOnce Booking page. To receive Booking notifications for a Booking page, you must be either the Owner or an Editor of the Booking page. Booking page Owners automatically receive email notifications. Booking page Editors can receive notifications and make changes to the page. 

To see if you are an Owner or Editor of a Booking page, go to Setup -> ScheduleOnce setup and check the relevant Booking page in the Booking pages section (Figure 2).  You should see Owned by you or You are an Editor on the relevant Booking page.

  1. Go to Setup -> ScheduleOnce setup -> Booking pages -> action menu (three dots) -> Booking page access. In this section, you can determine which Booking pages the specific User can access.
  2. Go to Setup -> ScheduleOnce setup -> select the relevant Booking page -> Overview sectionHere you can edit the Booking page's Owner and Editor. This method is only possible if the Administrator is able to edit that specific Booking page.
