Time Increments in Calendar and Online Appointment Booking

We realize you may want to plan your day minute by minute and that appointment duration can range from 5 minutes to a whole day. In order to satisfy your and your business’s needs, we have added a useful feature that allows you to divide the working hours in your Calendar into 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 60 minutes increments. This enables you to fill in and plan even the smallest detail of your day.

In the “Scheduling options” in your Bookappo account, you can also find an option to set time increments on your booking website at which your clients can book appointments. You can select the same time increments as in the calendar (recommended) or choose other times ranging from 5 minutes to 8 hours. This on the other hand, allows you to be in control when your clients can book appointments and how long the appointments will be.

Learn where and how to set the time increments in the following section.
