Adding a schedule that repeats every 2 weeks or more is great for clients who set appointments with you every so often. Let's say that you plan to accept appointments every 2 weeks for September and October 2015, but from November to December 2015 you plan to only be able to accept appointments every 3 weeks.
To create a schedule for accepting appointments every 2 weeks, first select the staff member that would like to add the schedule for, and then select the schedule type "Schedule that repeats every 2 weeks or more" from the first page of the "Add Staff Availability" flow then press "Continue":
Next you'll select what date this bi-weekly schedule is set to start on and the days of the week you'll be available. In this case, starting September 1st, 2015 through October 30, 2015, I will be available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays for appointments:
On the Working Hours page, I will set what times I will be able to accept service based appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays from September 1st - October 30th. On Mondays, Tuesdays, & Thursdays I'll be available from 9:00am-1:00pm and then from 2:00pm-6:00pm. By using the "Break" button, I can add in the "off" period between 1:00pm-2:00pm. On Fridays I will only be available from 9:00am - 1:00pm and will not take any breaks.
This would mean, for instance, if a client is trying to book a service that has a duration of 1 hour on a Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday appointments could be made from:
After you have added your hours of availability, click on the "Continue" button to move forward to the Confirmation page. Once on the Confirmation page, you can review the information you;ve entered and if everything looks well you can press "Submit":
You will be directed to your Staff Availability tab where you can see the new availability you've added. You could also see this availability from a client's point of view starting in September:
All Saturdays during the month of September are highlighted and some Thursdays and Fridays, but this because I already had availability scheduled for those dates. You can still see that I have availability scheduled every 2 weeks for the days and hours I've just set.
Now for the months of November and December, I would be able to add a schedule that repeats every 3 weeks for these months by going back through the Staff Availability Flow through first selecting the staff member I'd like to add the schedule for. Next, I'll select the schedule type "Schedule that repeats every 2 weeks or more", and from there click "Continue".
When on the Available Dates page, I will set my schedule to repeat on a "Weekly Basis" and choose "3 weeks" for the repeating frequency.
Once I've done this, I'll continue to fill in the rest of my information for the Available Dates, Working Hours, and Confirmation pages. Just like my bi-weekly repeating schedule, I can also view this availability from a client's perspective starting in November:
