We've heard your feedback and are thrilled to announce that Boulevard's add-on services have received a major upgrade. With our new add-ons, you now have the ability to create a service with your desired settings, from service provider or resource assignments to commission specifications, and attach it as an add-on service to a base service.
Our new add-ons can also be associated with package and membership vouchers, usage-based pricing, and are visible in reporting. The add-on must be performed by the same provider as the base service, allowing you to increase per-client spend and enhance your clients' services without causing scheduling headaches.
Add-On Service Only
As part of this exciting new feature, we've introduced a new "Add-On Service Only" toggle within the service menu of your Manage Business settings. When on, this setting ensures that staff or clients can only see the option to book the add-on service when a compatible base service is already selected in the booking flow. This allows you to tap into all of your favorite service functionality without allowing an add-on to be booked by itself.
Zero Minute Duration Add-Ons
Want to offer enhancements to a base service that do not extend its duration? We've got you! If a service is set as "Add-On Service Only," you'll now be able to set the default duration to zero minutes.
Clients can self book add-ons in the booking widget
Clients will now have the ability to book their favorite services with add-ons that incorporate all of the scheduling logic your business may need. Once a client selects their base service and add-on(s), we have updated the booking widget so that it filters the available service provider option to only the providers who are able to perform both the base and selected add-on services.
Old add-ons = "service modifiers"
Our previous version of add-on services are now called "service modifiers." You'll see that any previously created add-ons are included in this section of the "Options" tab for each service. Modifiers will maintain all existing functionality so as not to disrupt your scheduling, however we encourage you to think of modifiers as customizable selections to the base service that may impact the duration or price but are not services themselves. Examples include length of hair for a haircut or preferred aromatherapy scent during a massage.
