Setting Your Availability

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

Vetster's top 3 tips for optimizing your availability:

  1. Set your base availability for the work week.

    Select Availability & rates to set your default hours of availability. You can also add multiple times and rates for each day of the week. Update this as frequently as you need!

  2. Set your minimum booking notice required to accept an appointment.

    Select Appointment settings to set your default appointment duration, rate, and minimum booking notice. This is the minimum amount of time you need prior to accepting an appointment. The default time is set to 15 minutes and can be adjusted to up to 12 hours. This can be adjusted at anytime.

  3. Block off periods of unavailability that fall within your default available hours.

    Under Rates & availability select Calendar. Here you can add in blocks of time that you are unavailable. Appointments will not be booked for you during these periods. You can also import external calendars (such as Gmail, Outlook etc.) on Vetster.
