A booking widget is a tool that you can use to allow your customers to make bookings with your yourself.
Allow your customers to access your booking widget where ever they interact with your business, whether that be on your website, social media, emails or SMS.
🧐 What does embedded mean?
When a booking widget is embedded, it means that your customer will be able to view it on the main body of your website (compared to popover which takes the form of a book now button which reveals the booking widget once clicked on).
⚙️ How to create an embedded booking widget
Firstly click on Booking tools and select Manage booking widgets
Click on the Create new widget button
You will see that the widget is automatically in the embedded mode
Name your booking widget - this name is for your labelling purposes and will not show on your booking widget
Limit to a resource or resource groups - create booking widgets which offer only specific resources
Allow resource and group selection- tick the box to allow customers to select the resource that is bookable.
Allow customers to make multiple bookings in one transaction- tick this box if you want to give customers the option to book multiple services, or multiple appointments for the same service within one transaction.
Click Save widget.
To change the colours of your booking widget, click on the colour box to choose from the colour picker or, if you have specific hex codes, paste or type them into the box below the colour picker.
🔖 How to add the widget to your website
Once the widget is created, you can copy the embed code:
Make sure that HTML snippet is highlighted in orange and copy the iframe code - the paper icon in the right hand corner of the black box will copy the code for you
Paste the iframe code into your website builder.
