How does it work operationally?

The supply of available appointments is managed by admin/operational staff using Zesty’s standalone diary.

The diary is internet-based meaning that any approved member of staff with a login (supplied by Zesty) and an internet connection can manage the capacity of available appointments available at all campuses.
