Processing time allows for other bookings while the client waits. Blocked time adds a gap for the team members between appointments for cleaning or preparation.

Yes, use the booked-in parallel schedule type for packages like manicures & pedicures that require multiple staff members. Make sure that the services are allocated to the relevant team members at the time of booking.
