Virtual appointment slots are now available for member-side bookings through both the Member App and Web Portal.
For those who are still using the older version of Appointments, you'll notice virtual slots specifically created for personal training (PT) sessions with trainers.
What makes virtual appointments stand out is their dynamic generation. They are created on the fly, taking into account appointment settings and the availability of our trainers.
This dynamic approach offers flexibility to generate appointment slots in real-time, considering any overlaps with newly created bookings. This ensures a smoother and more responsive booking experience for your members.

- when mobile setting “Show past events” is ON, then the start time is at 12AM current day
