Online Booking: How do I enable the book.app Mini-Site and Booking Bot?

To enable the book.app mini site in your account go to the Online Booking > book.app page:


Or click on the setup button at the top of the page:


Create your domain name. This will be your mini site web address. E.g. 'funki.book.app'. Enter your chosen domain name (e.g. enter "funki", do not enter "book.app") and click Check availability:

If that domain name has already been taken, you will be prompted to re-select

Please note that once you have set your domain name it can't be changed

If your chosen domain name is available, click Confirm


Select a theme from the options available:

The theme and colours you select will also apply to your website Booking Bot


CUSTOMISING YOUR SITE:

1. Upload your business logo and icon

Click on the Online Logo Image Select File... button to upload your logo, which appears at the top of your mini-site and in your email templates

Click on the Online Icon Image Select File... button to upload your icon, which appears in the web browser tab for your mini-site, and as the computer desktop shortcut icon and mobile device icon when saved as a shortcut



2. Set your header background hero image

This is the background image that shows at the top of your mini site. You can either use your own image by clicking the Online Hero Image Select File... button, or click through the tabs and select from the provided options:


3. Select your action colours

These will be preset with the colour codes related to your chosen theme, however feel free to edit them. You can change these colours by clicking inside the field and using the colour-picker, or by entering hex colour codes.

The Action Colour field relates to the colour of buttons, clickable text and other page highlights

The Action Text Colour field sets the colour of the text within buttons


Click Save


As you edit these sections the preview on the right of the page will update to show the change:

Please Note: To ensure your book.app theme is added to your emails please;

  1. Go to the the Notifications > Email Settings page
  2. If the green Override button is showing for your Master Email Template, no further action is required, as the new template is automatically applied

This will then show the Edit, Disable and Revert buttons as before. The system will then apply the book.app theme into your template and also keep the other changes you've made to this template.
