Appointment Scheduling Functionality

Configure the MotoPress Appointment Booking plugin

The CoachZee theme is powered by the MotoPress Appointment Booking plugin.

In addition to its main aim to enable you to accept online payments and schedule appointments automatically via the booking widget, you can also use it to showcase your team, services, and more.

Here is a general guide on how to configure the plugin: scheduling plugin documentation.

Generally you’ll need to follow these steps to configure the plugin:

  • Go to Appointments > Settings menu > General to set a booking confirmation mode, currency, default time slot for bookings, enable multi booking, etc.
  • Add Employees via the Employees menu.
  • Add locations via the Locations menu (e.g. cities, areas, online or in a physical entity, etc.).
  • Create employee schedules via the Schedules menu (e.g. add working hours, lunchtimes, days off, etc.).
  • Add and customize services and courses you offer (e.g. classes, sessions, appointments, fitness training, etc.) via the Services menu.
  • Categorize services by Tags and Categories via the respective menus.
  • Set up email notifications for the admin and client via Appointments > Settings menu > Emails.
  • If you want to accept online payments, go to Appointments > Settings > Payments and click Manage next to the needed payment gateways.
  • Add a booking widget to your site with a dedicated Gutenberg block (the Appointment form block).
