How are time zones configured?
At this time, a single time zone is shared at the Merchant level, used for all Providers within the Merchant. When setting up Appointments, make sure you have the desired timezone set for your Merchant account in Account Settings before your customers start making any bookings.
How does the Google Calendar integration work?
Integration with Google Calendar is offered out of the box, however it is only used to publish appointments to the connected Google Calendar, and isn’t used for availability at this time.
Do I have to provide my physical address?
When adding or editing Providers in Account Settings the address of the Provider must be included, the only time this is shown to customers is in the Appointments Email Notifications as a dynamic merge tag that you can edit to remove if desired. For example, maybe you don’t need to provide the customer with your address if you will be having a Zoom call instead.
Do my customers have to provide their phone number?
The phone number of the lead can be important for operational reasons like contacting the customer about their appointment, and is also included in the lead created from the booking made on your Landing Page, all within your existing Wishpond setup.
