Service Types are additional features for your appointment form. They are very useful if you have different kinds of services or sales processes that occur on different time frames and on different days of the week or month. A therapist might have different kinds of activities like group therapy for different kinds of issues. Some happen on Monday, say for substance abuse, and some happen on Thursdays, say Thursday meetings are for people managing a big loss. And the rest of the week, the therapist provides one on one appointments.
With Appointment Service Types, this is what this specific example would look like:
This is how you add Appointment Service Types to your form:
1. Go to Calendar
