Service Based Duration

Common Questions:

  • How can I offer my customer the choice of 30 min OR 60 min booking?
  • Can a customer book multiple consecutive timeslots?

 

Answer: Use Service Based Duration.

 

Timeslots are fixed size in ABPro. The only way to create a booking of different duration than the timeslot size is by using service based duration.

With Service Based Duration you create services, for each resource, that have duration assigned.

Example:

Resource = 'Betty'

Service 1 = 'Haircut', duration 30 min. (can also assign different prices for services if you wish)

Service 2 = 'Perm', duration 60 min.

Now the customer chooses a resource, then what service they want.

The booking will be made as 30 or 60 min depending of which service was selected.
