Setup Staff Availability

Overview

Creating availability is helpful for scheduling appointments, whether a front desk staff is scheduling for you or a client is viewing your availability through Client Portal. In order for your client to schedule or request an appointment through Client Portal, each staff member must enter the times that they are available for client appointments. The “Staff Availability” allows other staff and clients (if you so choose) to see available appointment times for each staff they are associated with
