You may have services in your salon that are only performed by certain staff.
You are able to link Rooms/Equipment to a staff's work schedule so online appointments are booked only when the staff is available. You must have the staff's schedule in Tan-Link or integrated through When I Work to use this option.
1. Add an equipment type named Service. Do this by going to Management > General Settings and searching "List of the types of equipment available" under Headings.
Select the setting then click "Change" and add "Service" to the list of equipment types found in the setting, separated by a comma with no spaces.
Click "Save" to save the changes.
2. Go to Management > Equipment > Select the Room/Equipment.
Under "Type" you will set the room's equipment type to Service.
Select "Update Bed" once you have finished setting up this equipment.
If you need to add a new Room/Equipment: Please review this guide for assistance in setting up equipment: https://tan-link.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360029953732-How-to-add-a-new-bed-or-equipment-to-Tan-Link
3. Go to Management > Staff > Update Staff and select the profile of the staff member that is responsible for the service. In their profile, go to Services and check the Room(s)/Equipment that should be booked according to that staff's schedule.
Once this has completed, save the changes to the Staff Profile.
Once these steps are complete, the use of that Room/Equipment will be tied to the staff's schedule listed in Tan-Link. Online booking for this Room/Equipment will not be available if the staff is not on schedule for the date and time in question.
If a client tries to book during a time period the staff member is unavailable, Tan-Link will adjust to the next available time.
