4. Customize your CozyCal button

Once you have added the code on your website, you can easily add buttons that integrate with your website.

These buttons will open your CozyCal booking page in a modal. This means that your guests won't need to leave your site when they schedule an appointment.

There are two types of buttons you can add:

1. The Floating Button

The floating button floats at the bottom of your website on top of your existing content. It is a quick and easy way to direct your website visitors to schedule an appointment.

To edit your floating button:

  1. Go to Settings > Website Setup > Edit Floating Button
  2. Here you can change the button's settings such as button color, text, position and targeting page.

2. Custom CozyCal Buttons

Adding a custom button is easy! CozyCal detects booking page links on your website and automatically opens them in a modal.

💡
🛎Note: To enable your booking page opening up directly as a modal on your website, you have to first install the CozyCal plugin (refer to step 1 above), then disable the button.

Once the plugin is installed on your website, then you will need to disable the default floating button.

  1. Go to Settings > Website Setup > Edit Floating Button
  2. Uncheck Show floating button on my website
  3. Don't forget to Save Changes

5. On your Booking Page, click on the Share button, and Copy Link.

6. Add your booking page's URL (e.g. https://cozycal.com/kat) to any custom buttons, image or text on your website.

Then your CozyCal booking page will pop up as a modal. You can also link to a specific event type to open your service directly in a modal.
