How to create or edit services in Bookme?

In the Bookme plugin, services are offered by you to your clients. A service can be provided by a specific staff member or multiple members. To check all the services, go to Bookme menu > Services page.


You can categorise your services into multiple groups by using categories. In Bookme, a service must have a category, so you need to create at least one default category. 

You can hide the category field if you don't want to show it to your customers. 

To create a category, click on the Add Category button.
