Service Item Timeframe

Modified on Sat, 29 Oct, 2022 at 8:32 PM

You can add a period of time (in hours/minutes) to either side of a scheduled time that a service must be started within, eg. timeframe ± "30 mins" means a 10:00AM Service, must be started between 9:30AM (30 minutes before the scheduled time) and 10:30AM (30 minutes after scheduled time).

A default timeframe can be set for each service, and it can be changed when scheduling or editing a service.

If you schedule a service with a timeframe, is visible in the following locations:
  • Staff Schedule
  • Staff Dashboard
  • Admin Schedule


Tip: To show timeframe on the schedule, set "Show Time" to "Yes." You can default all services to "Show Time" in How do I Show the Service Time in the Schedule?
