Confirmation of a customer booking made via online booking widget

Setting this notification is suitable for companies that provide booking confirmation. For example, the administrator calls the client and clarifies the information about the visit. After that, a message will be sent to the client that the booking has been confirmed along with the details of the visit.

To confirm booking, click the Confirm booking button in the Overview > Summary section or in the booking window

It is used if the company cannot guarantee the provision of the service in real time, and confirmation is required for online booking.
