Making your first appointment is a simple, yet exciting experience. There is something about seeing a full appointment book that gives you a sense of accomplishment. :)

From the SalonBridge dashboard, click on 'Calendar':

This will load the appointment calendar. If you haven't loaded any staff yet, you will only see your column.

Navigate to the date you wish to make a booking for and click on a block to bring up the new appointment dialog:

Enter the following information:

Client details: Enter the name of your client with their email address and mobile number. The email address and mobile number are optional fields but required if you want to send this client reminders. If this is a walk in client, you can make the name of the client 'Walk In', but this is discouraged as it will limit your ability to track client history later on. We recommend asking the client for their details when making a booking.
Service: Choose a service that the client is coming for.
Time: Ensure that the time is correct. SalonBridge takes the duration from the service settings, but this can be overridden.

Optional Fields:

Request Appointment: This is selected if the client asks to see a specific staff member. A heart icon will be added to the appointment so the receptionist knows not to move it.
Repeat: Choose whether SalonBridge must automatically book this client for the same appointment on a recurring frequency
Notes: These are notes specific to the appointment. These are different from client notes in that these notes only appear for this specific appointment.

Click on 'Book'

Your appointment will be booked and the client will be sent a notification of their booking. These notifications can be configured under 'Client Notifications'.
