Lawyers can add a LawTap booking button to their email signature appended to outgoing emails. This allows clients to access appointment booking functionality on LawTap directly from emails received from their lawyer. LawTap automatically generates a selection of booking buttons for each lawyer to choose from.
In this article we cover how to add a booking button to Gmail in the browser-based email application. All email applications offer similar functionality and you can adapt these instructions to suit your circumstances.
Accessing your email booking button on LawTap
LawTap automatically generates the HTML code for a number of variations of your booking button. The code is available in the Integrations area.
To access your booking button as a lawyer:
Select Integrations in the top bar.
In LawTap Booking Button, select Add Booking Button.
Select your preferred button by selecting the circle to the left of it.
On selection, the HTML code updates in the code box.
Select Copy to Clipboard.
Adding your booking button to your email
All email applications allow you to add an email signature that can be appended to your emails. This is typically done in your email settings by entering text or HTML code in the provided editor.
