The mobi booking screen is not a separate template in that each full booking screen template has separately configurable mobi settings.



If you have the new generation booking screens active in your website then the mobi booking screen will automatically be presented to website visitors using small screen devices.


While you may not need to make any changes we recommend at the very least you set the web address to return to your website from the mobi booking screen (General Tab > Additional Options Section) and ensure font sizes  are sufficiently large enough (Styling Tab > General Styles Section). This and more will be covered in the instructions below.
