In your business or organization, you may be handling a lot of Appointments on a daily basis. However, it sometimes isn’t easy to see where you can create an Appointment solely by looking at the calendar. If you have any exceptions, special service times or other factors, a simple glance isn’t going to work most of the time.
Searching for Available Time
With the AppointmentPlus NextGen application, you can quickly locate available Appointment start times with a few clicks of your mouse. To start, click the Availability button on the Appointment calendar.
To search for available Appointment times, start by choosing a Service, selecting a date (or date range) and then the time(s) of day on which your Customer wishes to schedule their Appointment. You can refine the results further by selecting a specific Staff Member, Room (if you offer this) or adjusting the Duration.
Once you have set all this information, click Search. The system will then display any results where the Service is able to be created within the search criteria you selected. It makes the effort of scrolling or paging through the calendar faster and easier!
If you find you need to further refine your search, you can clear results to reset the selections or add/change any of the items for which you initially searched. Click Search again to see an updated list of available date/time pairs for the updated search criteria.
When you and your Customer have agreed on a date/time, click the Book button. This will open the window with all the Appointment details set. Enter or find your Customer’s profile, complete any other required Appointment information and click Book again to finalize the Appointment.
