    Appointments extra options

    The basic appointments is nice but i need a few extra options.

     

    How do I set it up so that my customers can add multiple people to their appointment when making a registration?

     

    I also require a deposit how do I make so that my customers have the option to pay in full if they want?

    In GoCentral you can setup different events/services for the number of folks that can sign-up by designating it as a Group Service Event and how many people.

     

    This allows you to have the appropriate price based on number of potential attendants.  You can also use the Description field to note any special instructions to your customers that they need to know about, what the next steps will be or any information they need to provide to you.

     

    As you follow the process flow of setting up your Services, the final step is to choose Payment options: Require Full Payment Up Front, Require Deposit Upfront, Don't Charge Up Front.

    GoCentral is what it is -- all  you can do is try to manipulate the options you have to work for you.

     

    For multiple sign ups have several "services" where the only difference is the number of folks one can sign up.  2, 3, 5 whatever.

     

    As far as payments with GoCentral it is either or -- there are no dual options.

     

    If you find GoCentral too constraining, consider looking at WordPress which offers all kinds of appointment plugins that give you the flexibility you desire. Smiley Wink

    That really varies from site to site.  Being you are on GoCentral which is pretty basic and simple it shouldn't be that difficult.  It would be a matter of getting a Managed WordPress hosting account, choosing a theme (I have an article on what to look for and think about when choosing a WordPress theme that may help) and then moving your content over.   

     

    After getting your WordPress hosting setup you would then just mirror your pages by copy and pasting the content from GoCentral into your WordPress pages.  Then, once your new WordPress site is ready to go, you would move your domain over to the new site and cancel GC.

     

    Here are some of the appointment plugins to review to you can get an idea of what is possible.

    Re: Appointments extra options

    To the OP, I too am having the same issue.  I'm liking the ease of navigating GoCentral with the exception that I too need for folks attending classes to have the ability to pay for themselves and other attendees.  A family of 4 should be able to register the family and pay for the party with one transaction.  I don't see how to navigate such a simple task.  Seems there should be a simple drop down window relaying the number of people in your party (and also relaying the number of class space/seats are left).  Select your number and then the form calculates your check out items.  I don't want to abandon GC for Wordpress if I'm happy with all the other options on my site.  Let's keep this thread open until we get the answer we need...please?

    I am having an issue editing the appointment selections for website... I want to delete the time length of appointment as it is not relevant to me

    Re: Appointments extra options

    @Kennyb63 did you add a booking for the customer? Do you mind sharing link to your website, the customer's name, and date and time of the booking? We can look into that for you.
