What is a Mini Session Event?

In this article, we will show you how you can frequently repeating per-day mini sessions. A mini-session event is one in which you have lots of times available frequently for customers to book in a given day.

In this example, we will assume that you have:

  • Availability on January 31 every 30 minutes from 9am to 4pm.
  • Each time can be booked by up to 10 people.
  • Each person will pay $40 at the time of booking.

Let's step up this event:

  2. Once the "Templates" tab is selected, search for the "Mini Session" template.
