This article describes all the settings available on the Business Policies page. For more information about business policies, see Business policies.
|Clients must book a minimum of [number] [duration] before the start time of a session.||The minimum amount of time before the start of a session that a client can book the session. Example: If the value is set to 12 hours and it is 7:00 a.m., and the Class your client wants to book starts at 5:00 p.m., the client cannot book the Class.|
|Clients can book a maximum of [number] [duration] before the start time of a session.||The maximum amount of time before the start of a session that a client can book a session. Example: If the value is set to 3 months and it is currently July, your client cannot book a Class for November of that year.
NoteThis business policy can affect Events that require clients to book all sessions at once. If you plan to require clients to book all sessions of an Event, the sessions must occur within the time frame specified here. Otherwise, clients will not be able to book the entire Event. For example, if you set this policy to a maximum of one week and create an Event that lasts two weeks and requires clients to book all sessions at once, no clients will be able to book that Event. To allow clients to book that Event, you would set the policy to at least two weeks.
|Clients must cancel a minimum of [number] [duration] before session without incurring a penalty.||The minimum amount of time before a booked session that a client can cancel without incurring a penalty. Example: If the value is set to 24 hours and your client has a Class on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m., the client must cancel before Monday at 4:00 p.m. of the same week to avoid incurring a penalty.
NoteClients will not incur a penalty if they cancel a session within the set grace period.
