Reservations and events blocks for Tock

Use a reservations block or an events block to connect your website with Tock, our all-in-one tool for businesses in the hospitality industry.

To get started, you'll need a Tock account. You can sign up here, or click the link in the block. Tock features vary by plan, so ensure you sign up for the plan that includes all you need for your business. For example, the reservations block won't offer reservations if your plan doesn't support them.

Tip: Events blocks promote events from your Tock account. To add events directly to your Squarespace site, create an events page.

Before you begin

  • To learn more about Tock, visit Using Tock for restaurant and event management.
  • Using reservations blocks and events blocks requires a subscription with Tock. This is a separate subscription, billed independently of your Squarespace subscription.
  • Reservations blocks and events blocks have the same features and work the same way with your Tock account. You can select one depending on your business's focus, but both blocks will display the same information from your Tock account.

Add a reservations or events block

To add a reservations or events block:

  1. Edit a page or post, click an insert point, and click Reservations or Events under Powered by Tock. For help, visit Adding content with blocks.
  2. If you don't have a Tock account, click Learn more or Create your first event. Otherwise, click Already a customer.
  3. Add your Tock URL slug to the Business URL slug field. This is the last part of your Tock URL, as bolded here:
  4. Click the Design tab to style the block's appearance.

It's not possible to edit Book now button text.

Style the block

You can change the block layout in the block's Design tab:.

  • Layout - Choose from Button or Inline. With the button layout, visitors enter information after clicking Book now. With the inline layout, drop-down menus for guests, date, and time display beside the Book now button.
  • Alignment - Align the block left, center, or right.
  • Tock logo - Switch this toggle on to display the Tock logo below the block.

Reservations blocks and events blocks follow your button font and button color settings in site styles, including the text in the drop-down menus.

If your site is on version 7.0 and you don't see button tweaks in your site styles, temporarily add a form block to the same page as your reservations or events block. This should make the button tweaks visible. After saving your style changes, you can delete the form block.

How visitors use the block

Reservations blocks and events blocks display a Book now button. Clicking it opens a pop-up window with reservation information, event calendars, and other information from your Tock account.

Keep in mind, if your Tock account has both reservations and events, all of the information will appear for customers when they click Book now.

In the pop-up window, they can enter their information, then click a button to continue to Tock to finalize their reservation or ticket purchase.

Note: If visitors use an incognito or private browser, the information they enter in the reservations or events block on Squarespace may not carry over to Tock, and they'll have to reenter their information. Encourage your visitors not to use incognito browsers to avoid this.

Who to contact for support

Tock is a Squarespace company, but the support teams are different. Depending on the issue you're having, contact either Squarespace or Tock:
