Default time step

A default time step is the bread and butter of the MotoPress WordPress Appointment Booking plugin. Your choice of the default time step directly depends on the duration of your appointments. For example, if you want to create an appointment that lasts 1 h and 10 m, you need to set the default time step to 10 minutes to be able to set this duration.

If there are no appointments or breaks/lunchtimes that last, for example, less than 30 minutes, it makes sense to set a default time step to 30 minutes. However, if you have appointments that last 1 h 40 m, again, a default time step of 10 m is required.

Depending on a time step, you’ll see different time slots when setting appointment durations:


Confirmation mode

Specify the way you want to approve booking requests:

  • Confirm automatically: all requests submitted via the booking wizard are immediately added to your bookings database with the status ‘Confirmed’.
  • By admin manually: you go through all booking requests and change their statuses manually.
  • Confirmation upon payment: if a client submits their booking using any of the payment gateways offered, bookings are immediately added to your bookings database with the status ‘Confirmed’.
