Simplify Appointment Scheduling Process with Bookly Pro
Bookly Pro is the best booking plugin for WordPress websites (customer’s words – not ours). The process of booking appointments is fully customizable for your clients. It’s anywhere from 2 to 6 easy Steps. Here’s a walkthrough of the user experience in the standard 6-Step scheduling process.
This piece touches on add-ons, and focuses more on the standard booking plugin. Check out our add-ons and the deeper customization options they provide.
Step 1: Choose Service
Upon arrival at the page containing the booking plugin, the client enters the following information:
- Desired service
- Desired staff member
- Desired date and time
Step 2. Pick a Time Slot
Based on the preferred date & time, the booking system offers a list of available time slots. The customer can browse through the scheduling list and choose the time that suits them.
Step 3 (optional): Book Multiple Appointments in One Session
With the Cart add-on, your clients can book multiple appointments in one booking session. This feature adds an option to ‘book more’ right after Step 2. The ‘book more’ button will bring them back to Step 1, while storing the current booking on their cart (How to set up the Cart Add-on).
Two add-ons are worth mentioning at this point. The Chain Appointments add-on allows the client to book different services in one visit. For example in a dentist’s office: a cleaning, whitening and check-up can be booked in sequence.
Multiply Appointments add-on allows your client to book identical services back-to-back. This is useful for group bookings where clients are assisted individually.
All booked appointments will be displayed together with their dates, times, staff members, and prices.
Step 4: User Info
Here’s where customers insert info for organizational or marketing purposes. The defaults are name, phone number and email. These fields cannot be removed, but the phone number can be replaced with a Skype ID. More fields can be added as desired.
Your customers can also leave notes here on the booking system. Like their favourite spa cocktail or a request for parking space.
Step 5: Payment
The customer can choose between multiple payment options, including offline payment (cash on arrival). There are 10+ online payment options that you can choose from and enable for your plugin. Read more on these options and how to set them up.
Step 6: Booking Confirmation
Appointment confirmed. If you’ve set up notifications (highly recommended), a confirmation email and a text message (SMS) with booking details are sent to the customer. See how to set notifications up with this video, or this help document.
If you have switched on the pending appointments feature, we recommend that you change the wording of this last step. An acknowledgement or heads-up to say that you’ll be in touch to confirm the booking would be better.
