Appointments Booking - Settings - General Settings

General Settings

Back to User Guides

You can find the general settigs in the plugin admin menu, under Options.

You can find several options to customize the calendar appearance.

  • First day of the week - defined which day will show first on the front view of the calendar. This settings it for all calendars defined.
  • View of the calendar - The default view of the calendar (Day, Week, Month)
  • Small screen (mobile) max width - Input a number in pixels. If the device screen is smaller than this number, the view will be changed to "Day" by default.
    If you set to 0, the screen size will not be taken in account.

    This setting improves the mobile view, as the Day view is smaller, and therefore best suited to smaller screens.
  • Search for an open slot - define within how many days range calendar will look for an open slot when user load the calendar. Setting a high value might cause a slowness in calendar load in case the calendar is busy. 
  • Send email reminder before appointment [hours] - Setting 0 disables the option.
  • Display booked slots on calendar - Choose yes to display the number of available and total spots for each event. 
    Example: If the event has an opening and the user has the relevant permission, the + icon will be visible. Clicking on it directs the user to create an event from the back-end.
  • Show email in Booking title - Adds the user email to the name of the booking. You can see this in the bookings dashboard, as shown:
  • Discussion form page - This is a preselected page which is generated once plugin is installed and includes the shortcode for the discussion option. You can change this page while selecting another one.

General WordPress Settings

Some general settings are controlled by WordPress settings. The Date Format shown on the calendar and also the Time Format are taken from your WordPress site general settings.

Adding ReCaptcha

if you want to reduce potential automatic spam request you should add a recaptcha keys in the plugin general setting. Once added all forms for all calendars will have reCaptcha at the bottom of the form
