Implementing your new calendar

Embarking on your journey with OskarOS's Online Availability Calendar is an exciting step toward transforming how you manage bookings and schedules. We're here to guide you through each phase, ensuring that setting up your new calendar is a breeze. Let's dive into the details:

1. Create Your Account: The First Step to a New Beginning

  • Getting Started: Visit the OskarOS website and find the 'Sign Up Free' button or click here. This is where your journey begins. Enter your details to create your account, choosing a memorable and catchy booking URL that reflects your business.
  • Email Verification: Keep an eye out for a verification email from us. Clicking on this link confirms your account and gets you one step closer to streamlined scheduling.

2. Define your resources: Customizing your calendar

  • Identifying Spaces and Services: Consider all the spaces or services you offer. For instance, if you're setting up a library seat reservation system, think about the different zones like the main reading area, quiet study sections, or group discussion rooms. You might start with a 'Flex desk' template, but remember, you can always tweak this later in the Resources section.

3. Choose your booking options: Flexibility at your fingertips

  • Pre-Set and Customizable Options: In our resources wizard, you'll find a variety of pre-set booking options. For a library system, you might choose a flexible reservation duration, ranging from 1 to 8 hours. These settings are just the beginning – you have the freedom to fine-tune your booking options in the Settings menu to fit your specific needs.

4. Set lead time and buffer zones: Managing bookings smartly

  • Optimizing Your Schedule: Within the booking options, you'll find features to set lead times and buffer zones. These settings are crucial for managing the flow of reservations, allowing you to control how far in advance bookings can be made and to set intervals between bookings. This ensures that your resources are optimally utilized and helps in maintaining a smooth operation.

5. Share your booking link: Going live with ease

  • Spreading the Word: Once your setup is complete, it's time to let the world know. Share your unique booking link through your website, social media, or via email. This is where the magic happens – students, clients, or customers can now reserve their spots effortlessly.
  • Stay in the Loop: Every time a booking is made, you'll be notified. Whether it's through a quick 'ping' or an email, you'll always be up-to-date with your reservations. It's about staying connected and informed, without being overwhelmed.

6. Visualize Your Success: Your Booking Page in Action

  • A Sneak Peek: After setting up, take a moment to view your booking page. This is what your users will see – a sleek, user-friendly interface that makes booking a simple and pleasant experience. It's a reflection of your commitment to customer convenience and efficiency.
