Support forumCategory: QuestionsAllow for extra time after an appointment
Alex asked 5 months ago

Hi Nikola,
Thank you for developing the plugin – it’s great,
I am building a site for a customer and who drives to appointments to provide a service; gCal 2 way sync is essential for their business;
Is there a way to set an additional time period in between appointments to allow for travel?
If not, is there plans for such feature? Can you recommend a solution or workaround?
Thank you so much,

Hi Alex, you want buffer time after the service is done? There is no such option but it can be added.

Best regards,

Exactly – “buffer” time or “padding” time – that would be great,
Yes, my client wants buffer time after a service appointment to allow for driving;
I think other users would appreciate this feature as well, very useful for a business that travels between locations: like home services (electricians, plumbers etc); Or maybe a business might want padding time to clean-up after a customer visit, or do prep-work before a customer visit, etc.
Thank you so much,
Can we expect this functionality in a future release of the plugin ?

Hi Alex it will be added. At least buffer time after appointment because it is easier to add then before buffer window.

Best regards,
