More control on appointment booking times

You now have better control over appointment availabilities offered to your clients.

Most professionals don’t like to show all their availabilities to online bookings, especially for weeks when they are less busy. With GOrendezvous, you can configure your account to display one appointment availability maximum for every amount of time you want. This way, you can still offer enough availabilities to keep your clients happy without seeming completely free.

Here’s an example. You offer 30 minute appointments and have a empty work schedule one morning from 8:00 to 12:00.

If you activate this feature and set it to 2 hours, instead of displaying 8 availabilities every 30 minutes, we will display one availability every 2 hours: one at 8:00 and one at 10:00. If a client books an appointment at 10:00, the next client will be offered appointment times at 8:00 and 10:30.

But we go even further then that to help you! In the previous example, if you happened to already have one appointment at 11:30, we will offer 8:00 and 11:00. Why? To keep new appointments closer to existing ones in order to optimize your schedule. That is called clustered booking.

Oh wait, would you also prefer to fill up your morning schedule from 9:00 to 12:00 before offering earlier appointment times? Why get in so early if you only have one appointment in the whole morning, right? Just configure your preferred start time at 9:00 and we will start offering appointment times before 9:00 only when the rest of your morning is complete. We will start by offering 8:30, then 8:00.
