Calendar in Amelia WordPress Booking Plugin
The “Calendar” page is a user friendly scheduler, it shows a calendar with all scheduled appointments organized by employees, services, and locations. You can also quickly find relevant data by using services, locations, and employees filters.
There are five available calendar views: “Month”, “Week”, “Day”, “List” and “Timeline”. “Week” is set as default calendar view and it displays seven columns, each representing a day of the current week.
You can navigate through the calendar by clicking on arrows in the top left corner of the calendar. By clicking on arrows you can move one step forward or one step back (by a month or week for example). If the calendar is in “Month” view, will move the calendar forward/back one month. If the calendar is in “Week” or “List”, will move the calendar forward/back one week and lastly, if the calendar is in “Day” or “Timeline”, will move the calendar forward/back one day.
Between navigation arrows, you can click on “Today” button to move the calendar to the current date.
You can also move the calendar to an arbitrary date by selecting a single date in the datepicker that can be opened by clicking on the arrow that is displayed next to the header’s title.
The first time slot that will be displayed for each day will be two hours before earliest beginning working hours and the last time slot that will be displayed for each day will be two hours after latest ending working hours. Working hours are time slots on the calendar displayed in white color.
“Day” and “Timeline” views display employees as columns or rows. For the “Day” view employees are rendered in headings.
“Timeline” view provides a view with a horizontal time-axis and employees as rows. For these two views, if an employee doesn’t have an appointment for the selected date, it will not be displayed in the column or in the row. Employees breaks will be displayed grayed for these two views.
All events on the calendar used to store information about appointments. Each appointment stores all of the information about your appointment in one event. Event resources are used to provide information like start and end time of an appointment, an employee assigned to it, location, service, customer(s) and status. Appointments are colored by the service color. Events that don’t take too much space will not show all the information about the appointments, but you can see all the information by hovering on the single event.
Future appointments can be rescheduled through dragging the event in the calendar. After dragging, you will be asked to confirm the change of the appointment’s start time. It is not possible to drag them in the past, outside of the employee’s working hours and in the employee’s breaks. You can also click on the appointment that is in the future to edit all the information from appointments modal.
From the “Calendar” page you can add a new appointment by clicking on the “+” (plus icon) button in the bottom right corner of the page or by clicking “New Appointment” button in the right upper corner.
