About

Blackbell calendars let you customize your resources and service availabilities, based on your operations. Your customers will see live availabilities when trying to book a resource or a service. 

We allow you to setup 2 types of calendars: 

  • Calendars with time slots (massage, delivery, activity...)
  • Calendars with day slots (room booking, equipment rental, multi-day event...)

How to setup a calendar and link it to a service

Here is the general logic: 

  • Create a calendar (Path: Manage > Calendars) and set it up
  • Create a service (Path: Manage > Services)
  • Under the Scheduling section of the Service setup, link the calendar you just created. And setup the service duration and availability.

You can read more about use cases below.

Use cases 

Here are some use cases to help you properly setup your calendars:
