At the very top of the page, you'll see (and be able to edit) your business's Scheduling Webpage URL — the address where your customers will find your Genbook scheduling site. You can copy and paste it into your email signatures, text it to customers, share it on social media, and more. You can also use it to make a test appointment, and see exactly what your customers would experience when they book.

Your Business Profile section is where you'll find and edit the basic details of your account. 

This is where you can: 

  • Add and manage your locations, staff and services 
  • Set your operating hours and list your vacations (closed dates). 
  • Customize your booking page with your unique logo and header image. 
  • Set the search categories under which your business appears on the Genbook app and in online searches.

Next up is the Scheduling section, where you will set parameters and rules for your clients' online booking experience. 

From here you can:

  • Collect credit cards, deposits and full payments when clients book. 
  • Set how far in advance clients can see availability, using Appointment Lead Times. 
  • Set exact times or increments at which appointments are offered, with Online Start Times
  • Specify your policy and cutoff for online cancellations
  • Choose whether to display your service providers' names, a "no preference" option, or both, using the Staff Selection feature. 
  • Set up a waitlist
  • Allow or restrict double booking
  • Enable clients to choose multiple services for one appointment. 

Under Communicating, you'll be able to customize the notifications your business and clients receive regarding new appointments. 

In this section you'll be able to:

  • Enable customer reviews and choose how frequently clients get requests to leave one. 
  • Select your reminder types (email, text, both?) and timing.
  • Set up where you'll be notified of new online bookings and changes to appointments, under Business Notifications.  
  • Request additional information from clients during the scheduling process. 
  • Add information to your confirmation emails with up to 3 confirmation messages and one confirmation attachment. 
  • Briefly share news or changes to policies by adding a general announcement to the booking page. 

The Point of Sale section lets you get even more out of our Payments feature. 

Here, you'll have the option to:

  • Collect taxes on service costs. 
  • Create and offer discounts that can be applied at checkout.
  • Sell gift certificates.
  • Set your tip preferences. 

The features under Connecting are all about spreading the word about your Genbook account! 

  • Add a Book Now button to your website and/or your business page on Facebook.
  • Share your amazing reviews, via a reviews button on your site. 
  • Invite clients to book online with you.
