Squarespace is quickly becoming a popular option to create websites for businesses. It's simple to use, and you can embed your online bookings right on your site. Visitors can book an appointment instantly on your site, and it only takes a few minutes to get it set up!
Embed online bookings into your Squarespace site
Copy the bookings URL
You will first need to make sure you have your online bookings set up for your clinic. If you have that already set up, you will need to copy the "bookings URL" from your Cliniko account. To do this, head to Settings, and then Online bookings:
You will find the URL under Your bookings URL. You can either highlight and copy the link, or just use the button that says Copy URL:
Once you have that, you can add this to your Squarespace site. There are two different ways to add this to your site. You can create a page with the Booking layout or you can add a content block that contains Appointment Scheduling.
We will show you both ways, the first will be adding a page with a Booking layout.
Adding a page with the Booking layout
In Squarespace, you will want to add a new page, and choose Booking as the page type:
You can then choose whichever layout you prefer; Description or No Description. You will have a blank page now, and you can EDIT the scheduling widget:
The final step would be to set the Scheduling Page type to Custom Link. A new entry filled will open up, and this is where you will want to put your Booking URL from Cliniko:
Once you add in your URL, just hit APPLY and that page is set! You can go ahead and make that Squarespace page live as you would with any other 🎉
Adding an Appointment Scheduling content block
Another way to add your online bookings to your Squarespace site, would be to add the Appointment Scheduling content block. If you navigate to the page you want to add it to, you will want to Edit the page content, and add the content block wherever you would like your online bookings to show up:
Much like mentioned above, you will now need to choose Custom Link from the Scheduling Page type, and add in your Cliniko bookings URL:
Hit APPLY and you are all set 👏.
If you decide that you want to add more appointment types, practitioners, or availability to your online bookings, you will only need to change those settings in Cliniko, and this page will automatically update for you!
