How can I set up an appointment URL for my locations?

This article explains how you may add an appointment URL for your locations and when it is possible.

You may set up an appointment URL for your locations in Localistico if this option is available for your listings in Google My Business. An appointment URL is designed for booking a meeting or a slot to visit your business. For example, opticians may set up an appointment URL for their stores so that people can book online a slot to review their sight.

Adding the appointment URL into Localistico when it's not available on Google My Business, will block updating the information on Google. You can read more about the appointment URLs from here
