Online video scheduling has just been added

Businesses everywhere have been impacted by the global pandemic, and with more people forced to work remotely, and with video conferencing tools, webinars, and other similar tools being on the rise, BookSteam decided to join the ride as well.

That being said, BookSteam released a new highly requested feature, that being the ability to add video and/or meeting links to your services, classes or courses.

As of the writing of this article, BookSteam supports the following video conference software: Zoom, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Teams, etc.

These links will be automatically added to the customer email confirmations and reminders, and using the feature is incredibly easy, as we will proceed to describe below:

  1. Log into your BookSteam service.
  2. Navigate to the Settings.
  3. Go to the Services tab and edit an existing service.
    • You can also add a new one.
    • This can be done for both classes and courses.
  4. Go to the Service, Class, or Course profile.
  5. In the section Video Link (optional): add your link and click Save.

Once customers book their sessions online, your live streaming link will be displayed, and they will receive the booking email notification containing the live streaming link.

This live streaming link can also be viewed from the customer’s Bookings section on their account page.

As for the staff, they can view the live streaming link by clicking on the booking and switching to the Calendar view.

With this new tool, BookSteam has elevated its toolset to that of other top-tier conferencing tools, allowing users to get in touch and schedule appointments in a much more personal way than before.

This concludes our brief overview of BookSteam and its newly-added video meeting scheduling tool.
