The Scheduler feature allows you to let your customers make bookings or schedule deliveries. By scheduling deliveries, customers will be able to select the timing that is most convenient for them to receive their purchase, based on the available delivery times you set. You can add in as many schedules as you want. Schedules are classified and filtered by type, either Booking or Delivery.
