  1. Require authentication before accessing a Bookings page

    It would be nice to have an option to require authentication (and limited to a group of people) in order to access a particular Bookings page.

    This allows for some services to be restricted and could prevent anonymous bookings from people attacking a site.

  4. website customization

    I've seen some similar requests, but the one I saw that said it was "done" hasn't been done. You have added custom fields, but I want is the ability to add instructions or information to the top of the booking page. Widgets or other things that allow us to customize the look of the booking page and what it says and does would really help us cater it to our needs. Additionally, I would like the option to have service descriptions right under the service name, rather than having to click the (i) beside it to get this information.

  5. Edit the title of the meeting once booked

    Allow the title of the meeting to editable when the invite and confirmation email is sent to the customer. At present, the title is the same as the meeting booking page title.

  6. Allow the ability to add expenses/overheads for a particular service/customer

    For the purpose of calculating a more accurate revenue (or profit), please allow the ability to add expenses/overheads for a particular service or customer. For example, I could have various customers in multiple cities. I'd like to be able to add fuel costs as an expense so then when revenue/profit is calculated, I know how much I am getting. Also, a service could have its own expenses, for example renting an external product/service from a third-party vendor, or buying sundry items for that particular service.

  7. Regional Availability

    Regions must be able to be selected for services. For instance, I only service people in NJ, NYC, Philadelphia (give or take), and Delaware. An option to define this, or restrict people outside of those regions, would be helpful. And it should account for the possibility that I may get someone working with me in another state who can service regions I otherwise cannot.

  8. Either Services need specific hours that apply to whoever is available, or Staff need to be able to customize their availability based on se

    Either Services need specific hours that apply to whatever Staff member is available, or Staff need to be able to customize their availability based on the service(s) they are qualified to handle.

    I'm one person person running my business. But my free consultation is very limited in time. I also have a paid consultation option that is also limited, but to different blocks. I cannot use my main email for both because then my limited availability from one applies to the other. I need to be able to set an availability that applies to one and not the other, and…

  11. allow appointments with multiple staff members

    Allow customers to book an appointment with multiple staff members, like being able to have a support person and a primary person on the same appointment.

  12. Potential issue when staff member cancels using their work Office 365 calendar.

    What if the staff member is ill and only cancels from his calendar? This means both the Administrator and the customer are not notified that the staff member is no longer available for the meeting. We tested this in a meeting today and no one was notified about the staff member's cancellation. It still showed up in Booking.

  13. Select Services to Publish

    When I embed my bookings page there are some services I don't want clients to book themselves but need for backend scheduling purposes only. I would like a way to select which services get published.

  14. Mitarbeiterbeschreibung / Profil

    Ich betreibe eine Schwimmschule und biete Einzelstunden an. Für uns wäre es wichtig, wenn wir auf der Buchungsseite ein Trainerprofil mit einem Bild zeigen könnten, damit die Eltern wissen wen sie buchen.

    Wäre das möglich?

  15. Direct Links for certain services

    Direct links for specific services (say I wanted to book a one-on-one and that link to a client) All the other calendar booking services do this, please include this feature.

  16. The ability to edit the confirmation email that is sent to the staff

    I would like to modify the confirmation email that gets sent to the staff. Especially when it comes to additional customer input fields that are on the booking page. It'd be nice if they would appear on the email instead of navigating to find those customer added notes.

  17. Currentry you must change the time and or date when reshceduling a booking. I would like to only update an additional field only.

    It would be great if you could use the reschedule the meeting option to update the additional fields only without having to change the time and date

  18. No not show company name or banner on pages

    Remove as much of the "branding" as possible so it can be fully embedded (transparently) in a website.

  19. I want to choose if a customer gets a confirmation

    I'm setting up the booking calendar. No bother re-entering my whole calendar because I won't import form Apple BUT, I don't want every customer to get a confirmation while I'm doing it.

  20. "Time On" option in Booking Calendar

    A "Time On" button in booking calendar that functions the opposite of "Time Off" so we can add availability for specific day(s) when the staff or organization have special availability. For example, if a staff member switches their schedule on a given week to work day(s) that they are not regularly scheduled.
