How to set up staff

Setting up staff is a crucial aspect of operating the booking system. Adding staff will enable these members to receive online bookings and you will be able to manage staff capacity efficiently by having visibility to their bookings. Adding an email will let your staff be notified whenever someone books in on their assigned service. You can provide a brief description and/or photo to assist your customer's preference when selecting a specific staff member if the service warrants that. You can also add and assign staff to not receive online bookings by ticking the checkbox below the description box.

  1. Log in to you nabooki account at
