How can I set up lunch breaks?
We recommend setting up two individual sessions for a day, to account for a lunch break. For example, if a practitioner is working from 9am-5pm with lunch at 12pm-1pm, create two individual sessions being 9am-12pm and 1pm-5pm. Please see How to add sessions (availability) for how to customise this.
