The “Address Book” drop down menu under the “Basic Info” tab allows you to specify how your Booking Page should interact with your Address Books.
This option allows you to specify which Address Book should be used in conjunction with your Booking Page. By default, new contacts will be created in your default “Apptoto” address book, however you can tell Apptoto to add new contacts to a different address book (e.g. your Google address book, or Salesforce address book).
If you do not see the address book that you want Apptoto to add contacts to, then head over to the “Settings” > “Address Book” tab and connect the address book first, then come back to your Booking Page settings and configure the newly connected address book.
This option allows you to choose how your client should prove they are who they say they are, or at least that they are human.
Authenticating via Mobile Phone
If you leave the default Authentication method set to “Verify Mobile Phone” then your clients will be asked to enter their mobile phone before booking an appointment with you.
After entering their phone number, they will be sent a 6 digit code (via text messaging) that they have to enter before they can complete the booking. The text message they receive will contain a 6 digit code and a link to complete the booking.
Once they’ve confirmed the mobile phone by entering the 6 digit code, or clicking on the booking link, then the client will be able to continue booking an appointment with you.
If the Address Book selected above contacts a contact that has the phone number the confirmed with, then the client will not have to fill out the contact details, instead those details will be filled out for them using the information found in the Address Book.
Authenticating via Captcha
By changing the Authentication method to “Captcha”, Apptoto will use Google’s Re-Captcha mechanism to verify that the client is actually human.
