  1. Restrict Services Availability To Certain Days Or Times

    Just like we can assign availability for Staff, please allow us to assign availability for each of our Services. For example, there are certain Services that we only offer during certain times of day. At first, we thought that would just create a Staff member that was only "available" during that time of day. However, the problem is that our Staff member can also perform other services, so we want them available for all services. We really need Bookings to block or include availability on a Service level as well.

  2. Allow customer to select a time range instead of hourly blocks

    Give customer the option to book a custom time range. This is specifically for meeting room bookings in a business centre, having the option to choose a number of hours, managed in 30 minute intervals.

  3. 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.

  4. Need overlapping time slots for different length services.

    I have two services. One for 4 hours (two slots per day) and one for 8 hours (one slot per day). I need to be able to set up hours as follows:
    9-1
    1:30 - 5:30
    9 - 5

    So that if customer needs a full day service there is a slot showing IF nobody has booked one of the half-days.

  6. Allow more than one person to attend a booking

    I run coding courses for adults and children. A booking lasts 4 hours and the maximum number of attendees is 20. A system that can manage this would be brilliant.

  7. Hide all Bookings email addresses from the GAL

    Have the ability to chose whether you want the Bookings app to publish newly created Bookings email addresses to your GAL. Currently I was only able to do this via powershell for one email address. Having the ability to globally have this turned off would be nice.

  11. Notify if auto-assigned or booker selected

    We have multiple staff available to deliver services, but some customers prefer certain staff. When we receive a booking notification we need to know if the operator was auto-assigned or selected/preferred. This was we can have some freedom to reallocate if needed, without having to tell the reporter that their preferred resource is sick or otherwise unavailable unexpectedly. Thanks all.

  13. Hi, we are in much need of an option to set an end date for reservations for a service.

    we use bookings for our employees to schedule a replacement for their computers but we lack an option to specify an end date. As it is now our employees can schedule 3 months ahead indefinitely.

  14. Equipment Rental

    It would be a really handy feature if you could use bookings to reserve rental equipment based upon available inventory. I've started setting up our rental golf cars as Equipment Resources in Outlook and manually entering "meetings" using those resources, but to have customers able to request a "booking" themselves would be a huge time saver. Thanks!

  15. 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…

  16. Force client to choose a staff member.

    New clients are failing to see that they need to choose a Staff member. As a result, the system seems to default to the first staff member listed. if there is only 1 staff member have system default to that person. If there are 2 or more staff members, force the client to choose a specific staff member. This is creating a lot of confusion.

  17. Duplicate services

    When creating services, I'd like to be able to duplicate them so that I don't need to re-select all options. Sometimes the difference is time. I can have a 25- or 55-minute appointment. To create the 55-minute service, I'd like to copy it and just change the title rather than have to reenter all of the reminders, forms questions, and so on.

  18. It would be usefull if you could publish 'events' to the calender and allow customers to book onto the event.

    Instead of an open calendar, allow the publication of 'events' that customers can book on to. Event details to include, price, location, date, time, title and details. Additional event variables should also be considered, for example capacity (# attendees), duration, booking widows, cancellation windows and links to payment methods. This would be fantastic! Especially if it could link to QuickBooks!

  19. Allow Resource Bookings rather than Staff

    It would be useful if the booking could be customised so that customers could book resources instead of staff time

  20. Make "Select Staff" mandatory when booking a service

    When setting up a service to allow a customer to select a staff member, make it so it's mandatory to select a staff member instead of defaulting to "Anyone."
    Currently if they don't select staff and leave it as Anyone, it randomly selects a staff member. For what we are using this for it needs to go to a specific staff member instead of a random staff.
