Reorder the booking steps
There are 7 steps in the booking form to make an appointment. But it is not important to use all the steps if it is not necessary. For example, if you have only one location, staff, etc., you can hide these steps from the booking form. Also, you can re-order these steps according to your business type. To do this, you can sort the order by catching the move icon and pulling it up or down. All this sorting change will not complicate the system. If the staff step comes first and the service comes after, after the staff is selected, only the services belonging to this staff will come, and when the service is selected, only the staff members who offer that service will appear. We can say the same words about the Date and Time step. When any date is selected, only the availablel staff or services for that date will be displayed on the booking panel. If any step is not necessary for you, you can turn it off, only the date and time and information step cannot be turned off, but you can hide all other booking steps.
Pre-selected booking form
You can display the booking form with the pre-selected service, staff, location, etc. If we would like to show an example for this case, you can create different pages and you can put your staff members booking widgets separately to these pages. With the help of this feature, each of your staff members can have their own booking page. Also, you can use the same feature for your services. You can show the specific booking panels with pre-selected services on different pages. To do this, you need to use the [booknetic service=ID] shortcode instead of the [booknetic] shortcode. If you are using Gutenberg, search for Booknetic in the blocks and select it. The Service filter will open on the right. You can filter any service, category, staff, location, theme as you wish.
If you do not use Gutenberg you can manually add it:
Only services relevant to a specific location are displayed - [booknetic location=ID]
Only services relevant to a specific staff are displayed - [booknetic staff=ID]
Only services relevant to a specific service are displayed - [booknetic service=ID]
Only services relevant to a specific category are displayed - [booknetic category=ID]
Also, it is possible to use shortcodes at the same time: [booknetic staff=2 service=1 category=1 location=1]
In order to get the service ID, you need to move the mouse cursor over the service name. At the same time, if you switch to list view, the service ID will be visible.
