Vectera scheduling offers multiple ways to show booking pages to guests. You can send the link of a personal appointment type, the personal booking page or the team booking page.
If one of those links has only one appointment type, selecting the appointment type might seem unnecessary.

Personal booking pages with multiple appointment types
Team booking pages with multiple appointment types
Booking not available
If the appointment type can't be booked and the parameter has been added to the booking page URL, guests won't skip the first step but they will see a message that the appointment can't be booked.
