Blocking a time slot

Nov 8, 2023 | Booking Management, my.Vaniday

It’s easy to control your availability with my.Vaniday. If your salon will be closed during a certain time or an employee is not available for appointments, the time blocking feature can prevent customers from booking unavailable spots. Blocking out a time-slot on your calendar makes that time unavailable for a customer to book online, both on Vaniday and the booking widget.

From the left sidebar, click on the “Calendar” tab. Highlight the times you would like to block out directly on the calendar. A pop-up box will appear, simply click “Block Time”.

The time frame you have chosen will now show as grey on the calendar. Click on the grey blocked out time slot to edit the details of the time block. Click “Select a Professional” to assign the time block to the appropriate staff member.

You can also create a time block by clicking “Block a Time” from the right sidebar.

Keep in mind that a time block is not meant to hold an appointment reservation. If you would like to add an appointment to a time-slot, follow the instructions here.
