Multiple Locations

Full Slate can help you manage your schedule across multiple locations.  You can keep different hours at each location, have clients choose where they want their appointment to be, and even include the address along with links to a map and directions in the appointment confirmation and email reminder.

Your landing page can list multiple addresses, with each location marked on the map.  Clients can choose the location they want first, or select a service and then see where it’s offered.  (You can also create website widgets and buttons for individual locations.)

To setup online scheduling at multiple locations, first go to Setup > Company, and click “Enable multiple locations.”  You can give each location a nickname – like the neighborhood, building, or intersection – and fill in the address.

Then go to Setup > Staff and assign each staff member to a location.  For staff who work in more than one place, create a doppelganger for each location.  (Don’t worry, we won’t charge extra for staff that work out of multiple locations; just let us know by emailing support@fullslate.com so we can adjust the billing accordingly.)

Once you’ve assigned staff to locations, you can set their hours at each workplace on the Schedule tab (see Help on Change hours for detailed instructions).  Just be sure the hours don’t overlap, since they can’t be in two places at once!

If need be, you can even offer different services at each location (or different prices) under Setup > Services.  Just mark the staff at a given location as performing only the set of services offered there.

Lastly, you may want to add location-specific placeholders – like the address – to the templates for the automated confirmation message and email reminder to help ensure that clients go to the right place!
