Booking Widget Query Parameters

The Qudini Online Booking Interface has a range of Query Parameters that provide additional flexibility when linking to the Booking widget from your website:



Query Parameter


Description

?location=false

//string
Prevents the booking widget from requesting the user's location services.

Use-case:
If you are deep linking past the Qudini Booking Widget store finder page and do not need to know the user's location. e.g. for a virtual appointment.
?embedded=true

//string

Hides the Header (logo and top banner section) and Footer (T&C's and privacy link section) of the Booking Widget.

Use-case:
If you are iFraming the Booking Widget onto your website and do not wish to show the configured logo or T&C link.
?lang=en

//IETF BCP 47 language tag (e.g. en: English, es: Spanish, fr: French)
Forces Booking Widget to display a specific language and hides the option to choose a different language.

Use-case:
If you need to prevent users from switching between language settings.
?from=venues

//string (venues/products)
Venues:

/venues/{venueId}?from=venues


Directs the user to a specific venue product page, and hides the Back Arrow navigation option 
This can also be used in conjunction with from products:


Products: 

/venues/{venueId}/products/{productId}?from=products

Prevents users from being able to change or select a different product or venue.



Use-case:
If you are directing a customer to a specific venue or product, without allowing them to be able to change their product or venue during the booking process.

?orderNumber=12345

//string
Applies a string/number to the customer record which can then be displayed on the customer tile within the Qudini staff app.

Use-case:
If you want the staff member to be able to see the order number of a customer at a glance on the Customer Tile within the Qudini store team app.

This is particularly helpful to allow staff to find items online orders online for click & collect.

It also means the customer does not need to find and enter their order number when booking an appointment.


?by=externalId

//string

Allows you to link directly to a specific venue using the Store Id (rather than the Venue Id which is generated by Qudini)


/venues/{storeId}/products?by=externalId


Use-case:

If you want to direct a user to a specific store without needed to use the Qudini Venue Id. 

?_ga={yourGoogleAnalyticsRelatedString}

//string

Allows you to pass Google Analytics-related identifiers or parameters into the user's booking session.


Note: All Query Parameters use camelCase

Query Parameters can also be combined using the '&' symbol and removing the '?' of the added parameters.

E.g. "/venues/?embedded=true&lang=en&location=false"

Answers Customers Questions

Qudini also allows you to pass the responses to Customer Questions through the Booking URL. A guide on how to do so can be found here:

Feeding Question Answers into the Online Booking Widget



Booking Confirmation Event

Our booking widget is now able to send custom events when a booking is made. So that we can track analytics of bookings in your site which Qudini is iframed into if you have something like Adobe Analytics.

window.postMessage(
{     
customMessageSender: "Qudini",     
schedulingType: "Appointment",     
analyticsEvent: "Confirmation",
analyticsData: {
   "customerIdentifier": "cd915**************0371a"
    }
}
);

When a customer reschedules their appointment you can now collect that information from the same event mechanism as above.
