What is a standard service?

A service is what you provide to your customers and allow them to book. A standard service is one which contains only one part and starts and ends in a single duration of time. The contrary to this is a multi-part service which you can learn more about here.

Creating a new standard service

  • Hover over the Setup tab and select Manage services from the drop down menu

  • Click Add service and fill in the details under each of the headings:

Basic details

  • Give the service a name that your customers will be able to understand and identify when they are making a booking;

  • Select a category to place the service into, or click New category if the service does not fit into any of the existing ones (Learn more about service categories);

  • Give the service a description. This will only appear on your business Booking Page(s), not your booking widgets;

  • Include the location where your service will take place. The location will show in the calendar event of your confirmation emails, not in the content. Learn more about calendar events.

Type of service

  • Under service type, select Standard. Learn more about types of services here;

  • Set the maximum number of customers that can attend this service at one time;

  • Select whether multiple parties can join group bookings or not;

  • Set a limit for maximum number of spaces a customer can book online;

  • Set the duration and price of the service (Learn more about multiple durations of a standard service);

  • To offer virtual services you need to connect Appointedd to a video conferencing system. We have a direct integration with Zoom and MS Teams, but you can still connect with other major video conferencing platforms, too. Learn more about virtual services.


  • Select the resource(s) that provide this service (Learn more about resources and resource allocation);

  • If the service has any specific availability that's different to the resource's working hours, turn on and adjust the service custom schedule;

  • To ensure you have the available equipment or area for the service to take place, you may want to add assets. By doing so, the option assets will appear in your services. You can choose the asset that should be assigned to the service in order to prevent getting double booked. Learn more about assets here;

  • Set buffer times before and after the service. Learn more about buffers.

Online booking settings

  • Choose the permissions of the service which allows you to control how your customers book this service (Learn more about service permissions);

  • To take payments online you need to connect Appointedd to one of our payment providers. By doing so, an option called payments will appear in your services. You can choose to take full payment or a deposit and make the payment optional (if you wish). Learn more about how to take payments online.

Don't forget to click Save service at the bottom.
