How to let your visitors schedule an appointment on your site

Here’s how you can enable your website visitors to schedule an appointment, meeting, visit, or anything else that is time-sensitive.

The scheduling functionality can be enabled by using the Forms block or any other block with the form. You can add it to an existing page or create a new page and add it to the navigation for easy access, and then add a Forms block to it.

Adding time and date to your form

  1. After you’ve added the Form block to your site (or any other block containing a form), click the form to open Form settings. (If you’ve added a form widget in the Custom block, click the form and then the Form settings button on its control pane).
  2. In the General tab, you will find the following fields: Name, E-mail, and Message. (You can customize them by following the Forms block tutorial.) To add the Date field, click the blue Plus (+)
  3. In the Add new item window, choose Date from the list of items.
  4. Then, fill in the Label field since it’s a required one. Here, you can also enter the placeholder text in the respective field and tick the Make required checkbox. Click Submit
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for the Time option if needed. You can also specify the desired time format here by clicking the respective radio button.

  6. Click Submit in the Forms settings window and publish your website to make the changes live. 

Now, when someone requests a meeting or appointment on a specific date and time, you will receive a message to the address you specified in the Form settings.

Tip: You can choose various Forms block layouts to add various details for your website visitors, such as what information you require for the successful scheduling of a service you offer, details of the event, or a map to the destination.
