How to skip the first step of the booking process on your booking page?

Vectera scheduling offers multiple ways to show booking pages to guests. You can send the link of a personal meeting type, the personal booking page or the team booking page.

If one of those links has only one meeting type, selecting the meeting type might seem unnecessary.

Here's how to skip this step!

In order to bypass the meeting type selection process, you can add the parameter ?skipSingleMeetingType to your link.

Example: will become

Depending on the meeting type settings, the guest will immediately see:

  • the host picker,

  • the date and time picker,

In this case, it's important to not add ?skipSingleMeetingType, but to change "?" into "&". So your link would be

Use of the parameter

The parameter can be used for the following booking pages:

  • Personal meeting type

  • Personal booking page with 1 meeting type

  • Team booking page with 1 meeting type

  • One of the above options with or without required payment

The parameter can't be used for:

  • Personal booking pages with multiple meeting types

  • Team booking pages with multiple meeting types

Booking not available

If the meeting 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 meeting can't be booked.
