What are buffers?
Buffers will be a necessity for all as we ease out of lockdown. They allow you to add contingency time before and after services. For example, buffers may be used to allow for cleaning and sanitising of areas or assets between appointments. They may also be used to manage customer cross over, so customers have enough time to leave their appointment without bumping into anyone else.
How to add buffers to your services
Hover over Setup and click Manage services
Click the edit icon next to the service
Click Availability to expand the section
Under buffers, select the duration of the buffer(s) for that service
Click save service.
If you add a buffer of 5 minutes to any service, make sure that your interval increments in your general settings are 5 minutes or 1 minute.
If you add a buffer of 10 minutes, make sure that you interval increments are 10 minutes, 5 minutes or 1 minute.
If you add a buffer of 15 minutes, make sure that your interval increments are 15 minutes, 5 minutes, 3 minutes or 1 minute.
