The Appointment Analysis Booking Time dashboard gives insights into the preferred booking slots (preferred time of the day) of guests for each day of the week - these details are further categorized by gender.
You can see how exactly guests are booking these appointments - from the Web POS (indicating these are walk-in guests) or online (using mobile apps and the Webstore - indicating these guests are digital friendly).
The Booking Time dashboard has the following filters:
- Time Period: The report loads based on the time period you specify. You can set the time period filter to any one of the following options:
a) Today: If today is 14 April, Zenoti will show the report for 14th April.
b) Yesterday: If today is 14 April, and you select Yesterday, Zenoti will show the report for 13th April.
c) WTD (Week to date): If today is 10 April (Wednesday), and you select WTD, Zenoti will show the report from 8th April to 10th April. This is because, as per Zenoti's definition, the week begins with a Monday.
d) Previous week: If today is 16th April, and you select Previous Week, Zenoti will show the report from the previous Monday to the following Sunday. That is, week of 8th to 14th April. This is because, as per Zenoti's definition, the week begins with a Monday.
e) MTD (Month to date): If today is 14th April, and you select MTD, Zenoti will show the report from 14th March to 14th April. On the next day, the report will be for 15th March to 15th April.
f) Previous month: If today is 14th April and you select Previous month in this filter, Zenoti will show the report from 1st March to 31 March.
g) QTD (Quarter to date): If today is 14th April and you select MTD, Zenoti will show the report from 1st Feb to 14th April.
h) YTD (Year to date): If today is 14th April 2019 and you select YTD, Zenoti will show the report from 14th April 2018 to 14th April 2019.
Note: YTD is the default value that loads in this filter.
i) Custom: If you select Custom, you must further specify a Custom Start Date and a Custom End Date to get reports for the specified custom date range.
Important: Use the custom start and end date filters only with the Custom option of the Time Period filter. Without the Custom option, the Custom Start Date and Custom End Date do not have any meaning. That is, though you can select custom start and end dates with say, WTD (Week to Date) or MTD (Month to Date) options, you will not notice any impact on the report. Only when you select the custom start and end dates with the Custom option, you will see reports based on custom time periods.

Total Appointments by Booking Time (by Source)
This bar graph shows the number of appointments booked over a date range by the source of the booking such as from the Web POS (MMS - indicating these guests are walk-in customers), by import (if you have moved to Zenoti recently, this means you would have imported some of the existing appointments from your previous software into Zenoti), online (indicating whether the appointments were booked using Zenoti’s mobile apps or from the Webstore).
As business owners, you can look at this graph to understand if your guests are digital friendly or if they are more of walk-in customers. You may then think of promoting the use of digital mediums to book appointments and offer some incentives to guests who make bookings from the digital mediums.
