- how long a service takes
- how much time you need between scheduled jobs
- who can perform the service
- when your team members are scheduled to work
- who is available in your zip codes of service
- what your booking policy is
- who performed the job last and
- who has an open spot in their schedule based on these variables.

The booked appointment then shows up your dashboard schedule and you and your team member who has been booked is instantly notified so that no appointment ever gets missed.
