We are excited to bring two new layouts to our scheduling Step 3 page - "Datetime Picker" and "Morning/Afternoon/Twilight Picker".

Here's how to get set up:
Step 1: Choose new layout
To enable these new layouts, click "Edit" on the order form you'd like to update. In the schedule settings you'll be able to change the "Scheduling Form Style" to one of these new options:

Step 2: Set business hours

They have the option to select a day and then Morning, Afternoon, and Twilight as a time of day. Confirmation is still required, but this helps cut down on unnecessary back and forth:
