Sort appointment proposals or offer them one by one

What can the sorting of appointment proposals do?

If you want to offer your appointments in a certain order, you can now display your appointments either in ascending or descending order. If you also want to offer only one appointment, you can also display only the first or last possible appointment in a grouping.


Let's assume you want to make your working day as compact as possible. Start as late as possible and finish early.

In this case you create two groupings: Morning (e.g. 06:00 am - 12:00 pm) and afternoon (e.g. 12:00 pm - 08:00 pm).

You create the morning in descending order and display only one appointment. For example, only one appointment is offered at 11:00 am. If this is booked, then the next date becomes free at 10:00 am and so on.

For the afternoon you offer then the dates ascending. Thus first only 12:00 pm is offered. If this appointment is booked, the next appointment at 01:00 pm is available and so on.

Thus all dates line up around the midday time.

If, on the other hand, you want to have as long a lunch break as possible, it is the other way around. Then you arrange the morning in ascending order with only one appointment displayed and the afternoon in descending order with only one appointment displayed.

How this is done exactly, we will show you in this article.

Where can I find the settings?

Go to Settings and chose Booking Widget Settings:

Scroll all the way down until you find the "Grouping of appointment proposals". With the "Plus" you can add a new grouping.

Show appointment proposals ascending

Chose "Ascending" as "Order":

This is the standard setting in Calenso and so far known by everybody. This is how it looks like in the booking widget:

Show appointment proposals descending

This setting is new. Chose as Order "Descending":

Now the appointment proposals are shown in descending order, the latest possible appointment first:

Show only single appointments

To display only one appointment per grouping, activate the check box to Show only single element.

For ascending appointments, only the first possible appointment of this grouping is then displayed. For descending sorting, only the latest appointment is displayed.

The booking widget will then show only one appointment, in this case of ascending sorting it is the first possible appointment.

So you can combine these settings with each other to offer your appointments optimally as you need.
