What is the service category variable?

You can categorise your services within Appointedd and this will reflect on your booking widgets. Learn more about creating categories here.

This can be helpful if you have many service categories and want to communicate the category that the service is part of.

How will this display within our communications?

For example you could create a reminder that sends to your resources 24 hours before a booking that gives them all the information they require to carryout the booking effectively:


<p>Hi {{resource_name}},</p>

<p>I hope you're having a nice day! Here is a reminder for a booking that you have in 24 hours:<br>
{{customer_fullname}} | {{customer_email}} | {{customer_mobile}} | {{service_category_name}} | {{service_name}} | {{booking_start_time| date: "dd LLLL y | t"}}</p>

<p>If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with your manager.</p>

<p>Best wishes,<br>
Management team</p>
