Who can use this feature?
An appointment service is for enrolling in a private session. Only one client can book an appointment time online with an instructor and appointments are booked based on the staff member's availability. Clients can book times as needed and pay for visits using a plan or pass. Common uses include one-on-ones, consultations, evaluations, lessons, massages, nutrition consulting, and personal training.
Example: A Staff Member is available for clients to schedule a 30 minute 1 on 1 Private Training every weekday from 9am to 11 am.
