Add, edit, delete a service
To work with the Services go to the Services page of the plugin.
Add a service
To add a new Service you need to do the following steps.
Step 1. Click the Add service button under the Services table.
Step 2. Enter the Name of the service.
Step 3. Enter the Description of the service.
Step 4. Enter the Email of the service. This last will be used for sending notifications about bookings of the appointments.
Important! The emails used for the services must be different from the one used here in step 2: https://webba-booking.com/documentation/email-notifications/common-options/
Step 5. Enter the Maximum booking count per time slot. If you set 1, the plugin works in an individual booking mode, if you set more than 1 (2 – 1000000), the plugin works in the group booking mode. Group booking is suitable if your service offers several places at one time.
Important: we recommend to set this parameter on service creation and not after the users have booked the appointments.
Step 6. Enter the Minimum booking count per time slot. This option sets the minimum number of group reservations.
Step 7. Priority. This option allows you to order the services in the booking form.
Step 8. Enter the Duration. This is the duration of the appointment in minutes. By default, it is set for 30 minutes. Only numbers should be entered in this field.
Note: if you change the Duration parameter after the users have booked the appointment, the duration of the appointments for these bookings will be the same.
Step 9. Enter the Gap. This is the gap between appointments. By default, it is zero. Only numbers should be entered in this field.
Step 10. Enter the Step. This is the number of minutes that is used to stake your workday into intervals. Step parameter is important while setting your schedule in the backend and while displaying your free time in the frontend. By default, this parameter is equal to the sum of Duration and Gap, and cannot be larger than the sum of these two parameters.
Step 11. Set the Available to users. The users who will have access to the service schedule should be entered here. Please note that users with a role of a Subscriber cannot get access to the services. For more information about managing WordPress users, see here.
Step 12. Set Select form. If you want to use the CF7 form with the custom fields as Webba Booking form, select it from the list, in other case set the default value. For more information about the custom fields, click here.
Step 13. Set the price parameter (just amount without currency). Leave zero if you don’t use online payments.
Step 14. Select the payment method you want to be available for the service.
Step 15 and 16. Select the email templates. If you leave them set as default, settings from Email notifications will be used.
Step 17. Select the Email template you wish to use for invoicing.
Step 18. Preparation time (minutes)
From now on, you will no longer accept reservations. Let’s say it’s 9 AM and you do not want to offer slots for the next 24 hours from now, put (24×60=1440 minutes) in this area. This means that your form will show slots only after 24hours at the time the customer will consult it.
Step 19. Set Availability date range
If the service is valid for a defined period of time. Leave empty to set unlimited.
Step 20. Set the Google calendar
Select the one you wish to use. More information on how to prepare and synchronize a service with a google calendar in the dedicated chapter.
Step 21. Set the Low limit for multiple mode. If in multiple booking mode we need to setup minimal required time slots to be selected. For example, if we set 3, the checkout button is not enabled until we don’t select at least 3 time slots.
Step 22. Set the Limit for multiple mode
This is the maximum number of time slots a customer can select in a reservation session.
Step 23. Set the Business hours. You need to check the boxes for those days that are working ones for the service. Setting the time is also necessary. If there is a break in the work of the service, you specify two gaps, such as from 9 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm. If the break is not used, you specify a gap (the first) and delete the second gap by clicking the ‘delete the second gap’ link. After the removal of the gap, if necessary, it can be returned by clicking on add a second gap.
