The Widget is a savvy tool that provides a smooth booking process for your business, your consumers and your most important client, You.

Here, we have outlined all the features available to personalize your smart booking tool in a "one-click" kind of way. First, let's familiarize ourselves with the widget and its many abilities by following the Widget Feature Article. Did you know? You can upload the Widget in French for your non English speaking clients!

Now that we understand the Widget capabilities, we can focus on customizing it. To get to the Widget setting page, let's log into your Yocale account and maneuver to Tools-> Business Tools -> Widget Settings. Here you can Customize the following:

Widget URL and Business Logo
Alter your widget link to any URL you wish. The yocale.com/widget/ is fixed but your destination URL can be changed in seconds to anything you prefer.

You can also add your business logo to your widget by uploading a photo of your logo!

Widget Appearance
You can simply alter the aesthetics to match your mood or reconcile with your website by changing widget colors (front and backdrop color), shape, and wording of the Book Button. In the following scenario, we used Purple as the Book Appointment color but plethora of colors are available as captured below: 

How do you envision the Widget on your website? Choose from a floating button, inline button or an inline widget format and preview to test them out:

To provide more control over the user experience, you can incorporate your business logo within the widget by uploading the logo from your profile page.
How is that for personalization?

General Customization
Let's visualize this scenario; Have you ever used a software with excessive buttons or useless features irrelevant to your business? Us too. Our solution was to give you the power to minimize unwanted material your clients see and highlight features like:

  1. Filter, Hide or Default Items on Booking Page such as applying a "Weekday Filter"
  2. Customize the Client Registration Process by requiring a contact number or notes
  3. Customize the Confirmation Page such as "Hide the PDF button" or "Hide add to calendar".
