  3. Choose specific days for appointments, not working hours.

    I am open 5 days a week, but I want to book appointments on March 18th (example) only. Now, I have to block off every day except that day to take effect.

  4. Allow customers to book multiple blocks of time

    We are a software company giving training sessions on our custom software. Some users just need a short session – 15 minutes but some users will want a longer session as their problem is complex or they have not used the software before. Can we set 15 minutes as a default time period but allow user to click on 4 consecutive 15 minute blocks without going through the whole process 4 times?

  5. 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.

  6. Direct links to specific staff members

    It would be great if there was a separate page for a certain staff member and/or service type (or a way to generate a url that automatically selects a certain staff member or service).

  7. Would like text box added for company description at the top of the page.

    Would like to be able to introduce the company in a brief paragraph under logo at top of page. We are using this platform for scheduling candidate interviews, so that would help remind them what company is contacting them to schedule phone interviews.

  9. Include Manage Booking link in calendar invite ics file

    At the moment, a customer has to go back and find the booking confirmation email if they need to reschedule or cancel a booking. This link should be included in the generated calendar invite.

  10. Booking with phone number and SMS

    Admin should be able to set whether user need to select location if business have multiple outlets.

    User should be able to use just phone number for booking.

    There should be option to send SMS confirmation as well as SMS reminder to user and email confirmation to respective party as calendar list end of the day rather than individual booking.

    It would be great if has API to transfer book schedule to relevant application for detail for person name information.

    Much need to be improved. It seems very basic now.

  11. RESOURCE or ROOM ELEMENT is necessary to see availabilty of the phisical location

    Hotel Spa for instance needs to know what staff is on schedule but also and EQUALLY important, the available rooms for the services... this is NECESSARY for a booking.

    Tenis for example, where you have limited pists, you must be able to book depending on the "resource" availability and not the staff availability.

    **
    This will bring on the request of a RESOURCE or ROOM calendar view, which as explained, can be even more important than the staff view calendar in many case scenarios.

  15. Send a reminder to the customer after the booking

    There should be an option to set a reminder email for an existing customer. For example, a customer registers an appointment for an oil change with a local garage. It would be nice to have the system send that customer a reminder every six months that "It's been six months since your last oil change. Click HERE to schedule your next oil change."

  17. Have the option of internal reservations (for my corporate users) and not only for external reservations.

    We would like to have the option of internal reservations (for my corporate users) and not just for external reservations. This functionality is very important because we would greatly reduce the development of applications for reservations. We know the purpose of booking is for small businesses, but this is a fantastic feature that greatly reduces development time for internal campaigns.

  18. Customizing of style and text of the booking page

    I would like to change the css style and text of the booking page, for example the background color to embed the booking page into our Wordpress website. The predefined styles not fitting! Please add a text area so we can add custom css style to overwrite the predefined style.
    Additionally I would like to change some words like "Dienste" (services) because it sounds badly. Please add some variables so we can change the text of buttons, head and so on.

    Best regards

  20. Allow for Transparency in Logo

    Why can't I upload a transparent Logo to display on the themes colors? Why do I have to choose a background color for the image and then a separate background color for the banner it displays on?

    Please add a "transparent" Color option for the company logo.
