Scheduling just got a whole lot better!! 🎉🎉🎉
You can now add a Quote to the Booking Process of your Bookable Event. Clients will complete the quote booking flow, including completing questionnaires, signing contracts, and paying any amount due on acceptance before the event is confirmed and the job is moved to the booked stage.
Be sure you have checked out how to create a new Bookable Event here first:
In the Booking Process of your Bookable Event settings, you'll select your Quote here:
Note: In the Booking Process you'll need to choose EITHER adding a Quote OR Adding a Questionnaire and/or a Contract. If you choose to add a quote, your quote can contain questionnaires and contracts within it, as the Add a Questionnaire and Add a Contract dropdowns will be disabled.
Your client will then choose their time:
They will fill out their name, email and contact number details, then be taken through the quote flow in order to complete their booking:
If you have multiple payment methods available, your client will choose a payment method first before making their payment:
If you only have one payment method available for this quote, your client will go straight to the payment page.
Booking in Progress
While your client is in the process of booking, a lead will be created in Táve. You can specify the lead status to use in your Bookable Event settings. We recommend using the new Scheduling: In Progress lead status (which you'll find in your account here in Settings > Lead Status).
On the lead in Táve you'll be able to see your client's progress, in the new Booking in Progress section on the Overview here:
If a client doesn't complete their booking, this section is helpful to see where clients might be dropping out of the process. The lead will remain in Scheduling: In Progress for 7 days, at which time it'll move to Scheduling: Stale then be automatically closed after another 7 days. You can customize the timings of these automatic changes in your Lead Status settings.
Once your client has completed their booking and made any required payment, the lead will move to the Booked stage:
Your client will see a confirmation page, where they'll be able to view their payment receipt, order and contract:
Any confirmation you've set up on your Bookable Event settings will be sent out to your client at this time.
When an Offline Payment Method is Selected
If your client chose an offline payment method, the lead will also move to the Booked stage. You'll see a notice of the anticipated payment here on the Overview:
Your client will also see that information on the confirmation page, next to their Invoice link:
TIP: Add the Payment Promise tile to Right Now on your Dashboard, to keep track of anticipated offline payments:
