The "Advance to First Available" feature will forward customers to the first available appointment date and time for any given service and staff member, after they select a service and staff member. 

Note: Activating both "Skip the Staff" and "First Available Appointment" may cause severe latency (long loading times) on your Booking Page. If you turn these features on and your Booking Page slows down noticeably, we recommend that you deactivate one or the other feature.

Activating the "Advance to First Available" feature

1. Navigate to Apps & Integrations. Under where it says Your Booking Page, click the "Configure" button.
