Note: Usually this will update instantly however it may take up to 30 mins for your Online Booking page and/or your Branded App to reflect these changes. You may also need to restart Phorest for the changes to show on your Appointments screen.

Grouping Service Categories Together Online

Service Categories are also automatically grouped together based on their Online category setting. This is to make sure that Hair services are kept together, Beauty services are together, Aesthetic treatments etc. in your online booking menu.

To view and/or change the Online category assigned to a Service Category, go to Manager > Categories > Service Categories, then single-click the name of the Service Category to edit it.

Here you will see the Online category setting. To change it, click the drop-down option to select a new Online category, then click Save when you're done.


They will appear automatically grouped together as below.


Service Category Order in Staff View

If you are linking clients directly to specific staff booking pages in Online Booking, or have the Floating Book Now Widget installed on your website, it's important to note that the online booking menu is listed slightly differently under the Staff view.

Services will follow the order as set by you in your Phorest settings. Service Categories will be listed alphabetically, and will not follow the Grouping rules listed above.
