For Example: You can create different calendars for your Hair Care services. Here you will have four service calendars, one for each service – Hair Cut (Male), Hair Cut (Female), Hair Spa, Hair Coloring.

3. Finally, create a Service Page Menu: Decide which service calendars and groups you want to display on the appointment widget and give your clients a single place to make bookings.

For Example: Your service menu can have two categories “Hair Care” and “Skin Care” with different services listed under them.

By following the above steps, you’ll be able to efficiently schedule your appointments.
