Service areas can be used to automate travel fees, to restrict team members to only shooting in certain areas, or to only offer scheduling in areas on certain days of the week. This is a great tool that will save you a lot of time by automating things that you would have previously had to do manually after the order was placed. Note: travel is based on the distance from the team member's home/office to the property, so be sure that each team member has their address filled in on their account.
