By default, Setmore won't allow you to schedule an appointment outside your normal business hours. However if you want or need to, you can activate off-hours booking, which will allow you to schedule appointments anytime regardless of your business or staff working hours.

Off-hours booking does not affect your availability on your Booking Page. Customers still have to book appointments during your normal staff availability. 

Note: only account admins may activate off-hours booking. If you are a staff member, please contact your account owner to activate this feature.

Activate off-hours booking in the mobile app

When scheduling an appointment in the Setmore mobile app, you will notice that the app only permits you to book the appointment during your normal working hours. 

By activating off-hours booking, you'll be able to schedule appointments anytime, day or night. 

  • Start by going to Account > Settings.
Tap Account and Settings
  • Scroll down to the Off-Hours Booking feature and tap to turn the switch to the On position.

Now when you book an appointment, you'll be able to select any time slot you want.
