Create Your Own Set of Questions by Service Type

Ask the right questions so you can get to know your customer before their appointment begins.

The Custom Questions features allows the business to ask the customer additional questions from the Customer Booking Tool. Private questions are only available staff members internally on the Customer Appointment Window, and are not available for the customer to see.

Questions can be made optional or required for Customers to answer on the Customer Booking Tool (on the "Your Details" step) and for staff to answer on the Customer Appointment Window.


This feature will help you gather more information about your customer, leading to a better customer experience.


This is what Custom Questions can look like for your customers:

  • If a customer is a walk-in/call-in and doesn’t book online themselves, you or your staff can capture these details with them from the appointment window.
