Booking Appointment Template

The “Appt Template” tab on the “Booking Page Details” page allows you to specify the template that is used when Apptoto creates new appointments on your calendar (specifically on the calendar specified for the Booking Page).

You can specify a template for the event’s title, location, and body (i.e. description). The text in between the {{ }} brackets are fields. Those fields are replaced with dynamic information from the booking request.
