Some final notes:

  • Booking events works flawlessly for creating mini-sessions with the ability to detail session length, add buffers in between, and schedule for multiple dates.

  • While including a session buffer is entirely up to you, consider including it as an opportunity for you to briefly reset between sessions or if a client is running late.

  • If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message through the chat icon on the lower right of your account.
