Availability not showing for online bookings can be caused by one or more of the following:
1. Your Employee not being rostered on correctly
At least 1 Employee who is enabled for the Services selected in the booking must be rostered on to show availability
2. Your Employee not being enabled for online bookings
At least 1 Employee enabled for the services selected in the booking must be enabled for online bookings
To see if your Employee is enabled for online booking, from the Manage screen tap Employees and tap on the relevant employee name
If the Internet slider is green, online bookings have been enabled for that Employee
See How do I edit Employee details? to enable / disable online booking for an Employee
3. Your Employee already being booked out with reservations or breaks
4. The Service attempting to be booked being disabled for online bookings
If the Service is not enabled for online booking it will not show online
To see if the Service is enabled for online bookings, from the Manage page tap Services and tap on the relevant Service in the list
If the Internet slider is green, online booking has been enabled for that Service
See How do I edit, delete or re-order a Service? to enable / disable online booking for a Service
5. The Service attempting to be booked having a Resource linked, that's not available
Any Resources linked to Services attempting to be booked must be available for availability to show
Check your Bookings page to view Resource availability for the duration of the Reservation attempting to be booked
Also see How do I link a Resource / Resource Type to a Service? for information on how to add a Resource to and remove a Resource from a Service (via the web app only)
6. The booking time is within the Booking Threshold
The Booking Threshold is the amount of hours before which the first appointment is offered. If the time attempting to be booked is within the Booking Threshold setting in your account no availability will show.
The Booking Threshold can be set via the Booking Threshold field in your Online Booking > Settings page. See How do I customise my Online Booking settings? for more information. (see the web app version of this guide)

7. The booking time is outside the Booking Future Limit
The Booking Future Limit determines how far into the future appointments are offered. If the time attempting to be booked is outside the Booking Future Limit no availability will show.
The Booking Future Limit is set in the Online Booking > Settings page in your web app
See How do I customise my Online Booking settings? for more information
