Everything in this article is related to managing your settings in your Calendar. You'll learn how to properly optimize your shop's Calendar settings according to how you want to accept and manage your orders! 🤩
How to Use Your Calendar
You can choose between setting your available dates, or leaving your calendar dates open if you're taking orders everyday.
Set Available Dates
Toggle on "Set available dates" and choose the date you want to start accepting orders. You can also set an end date, if you're only accepting orders up to a certain date.
Leave Your Dates Open
If you choose this option, dates up to 3 months from the current date will be shown in your shop.
This is how the dates in your shop will look like. For example, if you're on the last week of June, the dates will show up to the whole month of August.
Manually open or block individual dates
If you're only available for certain days of the week, you can choose this option. For example, you only take orders from Fridays to Sundays, choose the dates individually and set them as "Open for orders".
You'll have to block the full month/s first and click save before you can choose the dates you want to accept orders.
Set the number of days your customers need to place their orders in advance. The cut-off date is similar to a lead time. For example: you need at least 2 days prior to the fulfillment date to complete the order, so set the cut-off date to 2 days.
From here, you can also set a cutoff time your customers can place an order. For instance, your customer wants to order on a Friday. The maximum time your customer can place an order is Tuesday at 12PM.
