How do I set/update my availability?

Keeping your availability up to date is one of the keys to success on the Vetster platform! Not having your availability updated can lead to missed or canceled appointments and a poor user experience for both you and your clients.

To ensure you're optimizing your availability, navigate to the Rates & availability page in your account and follow the steps below:

  1. Select Appointment settings to set your default appointment duration, rate, and minimum booking notice.

  4. You can also import external calendars (such as Gmail, Outlook etc.) on Vetster.
  5. When last-minute conflicts come up, it is quick and easy to pause your availability. From either the mobile app or on your desktop, click this tile to temporarily hide your profile and pause appointment booking. In less than a minute, you can pause your availability for an hour, a day, a week, or until a specified date.

    Please note this only affects new bookings. Any appointments already scheduled during this period will not be canceled.
