Before using your service booking calendar, there a few things you can set-up within DragonDMS settings, including the available hours per day and specifying the working days of the week, the start and end of daytime and selecting the first day of the working week too.
The service booking calendar is a visual aid that allows you to see at a quick glance which days have space available for further bookings. As service jobs are booked into the calendar, the hours for that day go down and the colour changes.
The calendar can be viewed in day, week or month view and also displays technician absenteeism such as holidays or sick leave.
Other useful features of the service booking calendar include a search facility for customer names and dates, a locking mechanism to prevent bookings being made on a specific day, the ability to produce and print out job cards for any given date, a useful ‘today’ button which will bring you back to today’s date and finally the capability of booking out courtesy cars for customers.
Finally, DragonDMS allows you to print out the service booking calendar for any given date range.
All in all, a valuable tool that no garage workshop should be without.
