What is the widget?

The PocketSuite booking widget is a website plugin you embed on your website that lets customers request appointments with you over the Internet.

Is it for me?

If you want to seamlessly book clients on your own website then heck yes it is!

 

Booking widget instructions:

To add the booking widget to your website by copying this code into the <body> of the website code:

<div id=”ps-book” data-account=”USER_ID“></div><script src=”https://book.pocketsuite.io/static/javascript/widget.js”></script>

Where it says USER_ID, you’ll but your username. Head to settings>profile>username. If it’s empty, time to make one special for your business! You can also see it in your email of instructions.

Advanced Options: {can we make this a new link for just the advanced options. That way it won’t intimidate people when the first see all the info?}

1) Show a specific service only:

If you have your website setup to already describe and layout specific services, you can have the widget show only that service.

To add the booking widget to your website by copying this code into the <body> of the website code:

<div id=”ps-book” data-account=”USER_ID” data-service=”SERVICE NAME“> </div><script src=”https://book.pocketsuite.io/static/javascript/widget.js”></script>

If the service name is Semi Private 10 Pack, you’ll remove the spaces for the widget to semiprivate10pack. 

PROTIP: If you’re adding multiple widgets to a page, see below on how to do that.

2) Show only specific items:

To have the widget only show certain items, head to the class/service/package ect. and add #[key word] to the description. 

To add the booking widget to your website by copying this code into the <body> of the website code:

<div id=”ps-book” data-account=”USER_ID” data-keyword=”TERM“> </div><script src=”https://book.pocketsuite.io/static/javascript/widget.js”></script>

You can also create a custom link as follows:

‘ https://book.pocketsuite.io/book/USER_ID?keyword=TERM ‘

So in the #newclients example above, that dynamic category booking widget and link would be written as:

<div id=”ps-book” data-account=”USER_ID” keyword=”newclients“> </div><script src=”https://book.pocketsuite.io/static/javascript/widget.js”></script> 

https://book.pocketsuite.io/book/USER_ID?keyword=newclients

3) Adding multiple widgets:

Adding more than one widget to the page super easy. Just use the first part of the code between the <div </div> and replace id with class. Put them where you want them and after the last one, add the <scrip </script> part. 

Check out this example:

<div class=”ps-book” data-account=”USER_ID“></div>

<div class =”ps-book” data-account=”USER_ID” data-service=”SERVICE NAME“></div>

<div class=”ps-book” data-form=”FORM_ID“></div><script src=”https://book.pocketsuite.io/static/javascript/widget.js”></script>

Above, the first will show everything available online for booking, the second will only show that specific service, and the last one shows a form. Then, it ends with the script part of the code only once, after the last one. 

Online forms:

To add forms online for clients to fill out, use this code instead:

<div id=”ps-book” data-form=”FORM_ID“></div><script src=”https://book.pocketsuite.io/static/javascript/widget.js”></script>

You can get the form ID from your messages using the www icon. You can also get it from settings>forms>select form>preview>share to open in a web browser>look at the end of the link after the last /.

No website? No problem!

Clients can book you using your online booking link. 

The online booking link is: https://myps.io/book/USERNAME

You can use this link to add it to your social media like Facebook or Instagram. You can even add it to your website as a button link. For any button, just edit and add that link as the URL. 

If you want it to show a specific service, use this option: 

https://myps.io/book/USERNAME?service=service-name-spaces-replaced-with-hyphen

Online form:

 https://book.pocketsuite.io/form/FORM_ID

PROTIP: Don’t want to try and figure out how to make the URL? Just head to your messages and in a message thread select the square icon with WWW.

Is this secure? How do you prevent spam?

Yes – we use SSL to secure every page. Furthermore, we verify the mobile number entered by the customer, and you can require a credit card for every booking.

Will visitors to my website need to download PocketSuite?

Nope! They can book you, pay you, and even chat with you having never downloaded the app.
