The Online Booking Form is a feature that allows your customers to easily book jobs through your website or using a dedicated link.
If you do not want to embed a link on your website, you can also just send the link to your customers and they can request jobs directly via the hosted link which opens a booking page.
How to set up the Online Booking Form for your account
Click 'Settings' in the left hand menu bar
Click the 'Company Settings' option
Click 'Online booking requests' section from the left hand side
Enable using the blue feature on/off slider
Click 'Save' in the bottom right corner
Add Custom Fields to the Online Booking Form
Go to the 'Form Options' section just beneath the feature on/off slider and click the 'Custom Fields' button to get redirected to the Custom Fields section.
Here you can add a new Job custom field or select an existing Job custom field and tick the 'Show in online booking' option. After doing this, the selected custom fields will be displayed on the Online Booking Form.
Allow customers to select a Job Template
You can choose to allow your customers to select from any number of your existing Job Templates by enabling the 'Allow customers to select a job template' option.
Choosing which Job Templates are displayed on the Online Booking Form
Then, in Settings > Company Settings > Job Templates > you can choose which Job Templates are displayed on the Online Booking Form. You can select the 'Can be used for Online Booking' in order to display the Job Template on the Online Booking Form.
You can also set the Online Booking Form to only allow users to request jobs based on your company's Business Hours. After doing this, the system will not allow your customers to request jobs outside of your business hours:
You can also choose how many days in advance the jobs can be requested, by using the 'Allow requests a minimum of X Day(s) away' setting.
For example if 'Allow requests a minimum of 1 Day(s) away' is selected, the system will not let users request a job on the current day, the earliest they will be able to book will be tomorrow. Likewise, if you select '2 days' the user will only be able to request a job will be 2 days away:
