The hours that are displayed in your diary are based on the business hours you define here. For example if you set your business hours to 8:00am to 6:00pm your diary will show these hours. Setting your business hours prevents your diary from displaying time periods that are not needed for bookings i.e night and early morning. (Please note if "Show Vertical Scroll Bar" is ticked your diary will display the full 24 hours. There is more on this setting below.)
Minutes per Diary Block
This allows you to customise the amount of time displayed in each diary block. The most common settings are 15 or 30mins.
Calendar Time Block Size
Select the display size of each calendar block.
Show Client Account Balance on Diary
When selected a red dollar sign ($) displays in any appointments for clients that have an outstanding account with you. This provides a visual reminder that the client needs to make a payment.
Client Name on a Separate Line
When selected the client name will always display on it's own line in each appointment and the appointment start and end time will display on the second line. This makes the appointment details easier to read and is the preferred option for accounts with lower numbers of diaries. If however you have more than eight diaries displaying at once the appointment columns are narrowed and it becomes important to maximise the use of space in each appointment. By unticking this option the appointment information will flow from one line to the next without forcing the client onto a separate line. This allows more information to be displayed in the appointment.
Show Vertical Scroll Bar
When this option is ticked the diary will display the full 24 hours for each day. As this is too much information to show on the screen a vertical scroll bar is placed to the right of the diary which allows you to scroll up and down.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This setting overrides the Business Hours settings (see above) and displays the full 24 hour day to you and your staff. If you use the Client Portal however it is still important to set your Business Hours as these are used to determine the start and end time in the diary that is shown to your clients.
Show Diary Names as a Dropdown List
By default the diary names are displayed as a name with a thumbnail image horizontally across the top of the diary. If "Show Diary Names as a Drop Down List" is selected the diaries names are simply displayed as a dropdown list at the top of the diary.
