Direct Scheduling Links are a great way to send your clients to a specific appointment type, appointment category, calendar, your class list, or your store page. You can find a list of direct scheduling links in Client's Scheduling Page > Scheduling Page Link in the dropdown menu:
There are a few places in your Acuity dashboard to find direct links.
- Direct Scheduling Links for Appointment Types
- Direct Scheduling Links for Appointment Categories
- Direct Scheduling Links for Calendars
- Direct Links to purchase Packages, Gift Certificates, & Subscriptions
- Direct Links on the Mobile App
Direct Scheduling Links for Appointment Types⚓
A direct link to an appointment type will lead the client to a scheduler that only includes that appointment type. They'll be able to book as normal, but won't be shown your other appointment types. There are two ways to find these links:
- Go to Client's Scheduling Page > Scheduling Page Link. There, you'll see the dropdown menu of all your appointment type (and calendar and category) direct links.
- Go to Business Settings > Appointment Types . There are direct links to the right of each appointment type.
Direct Scheduling Links for Appointment Categories⚓
If you have your appointments organized by categories, you can use direct links to those categories as well! These are found either in the dropdown menu from the Client's Scheduling Page > Scheduling Page Link page, or by hovering over the category on your Business Settings > Appointment Types page.
Direct Scheduling Links for Calendars⚓
Calendar-specific direct links lead clients to a scheduler that allows them to book only on one particular calendar. They will only be able to book the appointment types that are normally available on that calendar. This feature is available in accounts with more than one calendar.
To find these links, go to Business Settings > Availability and click on the Direct Scheduling Link button for the calendar you're interested in.
Direct Links to purchase Packages, Gift Certificates, & Subscriptions ⚓
If you also sell packages, gift certificates, subscription and non-appointment items, you can use direct links for that stuff, too!
To see your direct link to your Store Page, go to Business Settings > Packages, Gift Certificates & Subscriptions. You'll see your Direct Link to Store in the upper right:
If you have organized your packages into categories, you can link clients directly to those categories. The links will be in Business Settings > Packages, Gift Certificates & Subscriptions, directly to the right of the categories' names.
You can also see direct links for each package to the right of the package name.
Note: If you use these direct links, which go directly to individual packages, clients will be taken to the checkout screen. That means they will not see the package description, if you have written one.
Direct Links on the Mobile App ⚓
The Acuity Scheduling Mobile App allows you to get direct links to calendars, appointment types, categories and locations.
You can access the Direct Link by opening up the sidebar navigation and selecting the Share Direct Links option. From there you can select the direct link you wish to share.
Here's an example:
Other Places You Can Find a Direct Link
Direct appointment type links can be found when editing an appointment in the Appointment Types page by hitting the "Direct Scheduling Link" button located in the upper right corner of the page.
