How to create and manage class types
Updated over a week ago

What is a service

A service type refers to the different styles or practices offered at your business. Arketa splits up these types by Classes, Appointments and Events and also allows you to build categories of services to make them easier to search and find.

Building out a service allows you to quickly schedule all of your classes and privates in a faster and more seamless way.

One you add a service type, you can schedule out a class or private session from the Classes tab of your dashboard.
