You can setup a facility if the service requires a room such as a massage room to perform massages. When booking a service, you can simultaneously reserve the facility by selecting it from the facility drop-down list available during booking.
Facility types are used to classify rooms used to perform similar services. For example, a facility such as a couples massage room, can accommodate 2 types of services (single massage and couples massage). While a regular massage room can only accommodate 1 type of service (single massage, not couples massage). In this case, you would setup 2 facility types to differentiate the 2 rooms.
Note: Facilities are setup as a single unit (commonly used for equipment which can accommodate only 1 customer at a time) or as a class with a customized capacity (commonly used for equipment which can accommodate for than one customer at a time). If only 1 facility is setup with multiple capacities, then only 1 facility appears on the Scheduler when viewing by facility availability.
Follow these steps to setup a facility type:
- From the main menu, navigate to Admin > Account Management.
- Click Facility and click on the location name.
- Click Add new facility type.
The Location field defaults to the selected location.
- Enter the name of the facility type such as Couples Massage Room in the Type Name field.
- Click Save & Continue.
A list of all services appear.
- Click the checkbox next to each service for which the equipment type is required.
Note: To select all services under a service group, click Check-All.
