SportsNow gives you the ability to create shift schedules for your team members. Shift schedules are used in connection with the booking of appointments and allow you to define the shift schedules and absences of each team member. This way the customer can only book appointments with a team member if he is actually available. In this guide, you will learn how to create and manage shift schedules and absences.

  • Click on «My shift schedules».
  • Now select the desired member and click on «Edit» to open the shift schedule.
  • You now have two options: edit the shift schedule or enter absences.

Create shift schedules for a device

If you offer individual appointment booking for devices in your studio, then you can also create shift schedules for these devices. This is especially helpful if equipment is not available at certain times and thus cannot be booked by your members.

  • Click on «Set up my studio» in the admin area.
  • Under «My Team» click on «Add new member» and create the device as a team member. For the name, you can simply enter the name of the device. For the other information, you can use wildcards (e.g. "---") and leave the email address empty.
  • Check the option «Don't show staff member publicly under "Our Team"», so that the device is not listed as a team member on your SportsNow page. 
  • You can now set the device as the responsible team member in the class settings. 
  • You can now also create a shift schedule for this device.
