Full access users or account owners are able to post announcements at the top of their online booking page.
We commonly see clinics using this area to communicate the following scenarios:
- Clinic hour changes
- Not accepting new clients
- Accepting new clients!
- Vacation alerts
- Emergency clinic closure (i.e., due to inclement weather)
- Meet our newest practitioner [enter staff name and discipline]
- Health and safety protocols
- Links to external forms or resources
- And really, anything your ♥️ desires.

You can also add in some fancy formatting - check out the cheat sheet linked here. You’ll also find the same sheet of formatting options just below the text boxes at the bottom of the section titled, “View formatting instructions”.
Increasing text size is another popular formatting option for announcements, which is done by adding hashtags prior to the title. One hashtag is the largest font size, and increasing the hashtags will decrease the size of your font.
Here’s an example:
And just to give you an idea, here are the examples of our font sizes once saved:
This is a really big title.
This title isn’t AS big.
Here’s a title with three hashtags.
Really, you can use these hashtags at the start of any sentence to make it into a title.
A few other popular formatting options are adding:
And here’s what these will look like once saved.
- Numbered Lists
You can also drag the bottom right-hand corner of your text box to enlarge it to make it easier while typing and formatting. It’s nice to have that extra real estate.
