the time slot for the requested appointment.
2.     In the New Appointment box that appears, enter the name of the client. If they are a new client, check the New Client box, fill in the client card and .
3.     Above the service listings in the New Appointment box, there is a Recurring Appointment square. Check it.

4.     Duration: Enter the time period the standing appointment will be in effect, up to 24 months.
5.     Frequency: How often the service will be performed. For example, select every 2 weeks.

Ex. If a client needs to book an appointment every 3 weeks for 1 year here is how it should look.
