Auto and manual confirmations
Automatic booking confirmations are convenient for many businesses since they save time for everyone. In addition, OctopusPro gives you an option to switch to a ‘manual confirmation’ mode when you need to. When this mode is enabled, your field workers will be asked to review every new booking assigned to them. They can accept it, negotiate new appointment details with the office/customer or politely reject the requested appointment.
