Appointment Restrictions




Overview

As most seller and agent schedules vary from day-to-day due to work, vacations, or even a simple doctor's appointment, ShowingTime provides a way for agents to create appointment restrictions for specific days and/or times which differ from the day to day standard ones. This is known as Setting an Appointment Rule, which is anything that will change the normal outcome for confirming showings based on preferences set on a listing's instruction worksheet.



Creating a Showing Restriction

Showing Restrictions can be created and managed in two places on the Listing Worksheet:



Under the Appointment Restrictions section, which will display in a list view.



On the Showing Restrictions tab, which will be organized in a calendar view, allowing you to dynamically see restrictions set in place by day, week, or month.

Step 1


Click Add New Showing Restriction



Step 2


Add a Restriction Reason

Note: Agents who try to schedule an appointment during a blocked time will be informed of the reason why they cannot schedule their appointment.

Step 3


Choose the duration of your rule, Timed or All-day

Step 4


Choose the rule date duration, One-time or Repeating. If a Repeating Rule has been chosen, select the day(s) for which the rule will apply

Step 5


Click the Save Showing Restriction button to apply your rule
