Hi! I am using Amelia for a Hair Salon, and for the booking process I am using the step form on this page: https://energyhairstudio.it/prenota/
When I book an appointment through the form I can also select multiple services at once, thanks to the new very helpful "cart" feature.
But if I need to book an appointment manually on the backend there is no such option to put more services at once for a client. How can I manage this?
Thank you for reaching out to us.
Unfortunately, you can not since this is for front end and for customers only. When you book on the back end you need to book one appointment at a time.
Should you have any further inquiries, we kindly request that you open separate tickets for each question and we will gladly help you there.
We wish you all the best.
Have a nice day.

Hi Marko, thank you for your help.
Understood. But is there a setting where the client can book services only starting from the same hours slot?
For example, in my hair salon, I need customers to book multiple services, but they need to be booked consecutively. Instead, when the customer is booking multiple services, he needs to enter a new date and time everytime. Is there a setting for this?
Thank you so much
No, unfortunately, this is not possible, Amelia is not designed in that way. Se each booking is separate appointment so they need to choose date and day each time. THis is how Amleia is designed to work.
Thank you for your help.
But I see Amelia is designed also for beauty and spa saloons and barbershops, so this should really be a key feature. For example, if a customer needs hair cut and hair color, they should be on the same time.
Thank you anyway for the support!
They can not be at the same time since they are 3 different appointments and services but they can be booked one after the other. Otherwise this will create a lot of double bookings.
For example, hair cut from 10-11 and hair color from 11-12 so they are 2 different appointments but they are booked one after the other and they can book this in one go via cart option.
Hope this helps.
Yes of course, I did not mean at the same time, but by default one after the other. So the customer should select the starting time of the services once.
For example, he should first select the services, that by default are calculated one after the other based on the service duration time. And then he selects a single time slot based on the 3 services together.
That is possible of course if this is a one service, you want to choose 3 services but to be booked as one and to fuse the time slot. Im not aware of any plgin that can do that. You can create service hair cut + hair color + hair wash and set that service last 3 hours. This will be technically 3 service but you set them all at once and you set that this service last 3 hours for example.
Hi Marko, sure I understand what you mean, but if I had to do it in that way I need to create the same combination of services for all services. Since we have about 25 services this could become a bit complex. Also because the client could choose only a hair cut, or only hair color, so there are too many combinations.
Thank you anyway! Have a nice day
I understand what you mean perhaps you can create separate categories on separate pages and show them separately like this for example
Amelia Shortcodes and Front-end Implementation
Perhaps this helps.
Could be an idea, I'll check it out.
You are most welcome, and we are if that we were able to help you.
