Learn how to manage Square Appointments
The first step towards setting up online booking is creating Square Appointments profiles for you and your staff. On each profile, you’re able to set up hours of availability, services offered, and general permissions.
Learn how to manage Square Appointments and create staff members.
The next step to accepting appointments through your Square account is creating bookable services. You can enable services for online booking and choose which staff can offer specific services.
You have two options for creating your services:
Upload an existing list of services: This option is best if you already have your services listed on your website or in a file saved to your computer. This option requires access to your Square Dashboard on a desktop or laptop computer.
Manually create services: This option is best if you don’t have an existing list of your services or would like to start from scratch. You can manually create services from either the Items section of your online Square Dashboard or from your Square Appointments POS app.
When creating services, in addition to setting the price and duration, make sure to enable them for online booking if you would like them to appear on your online booking flow.
