  1. gmail calendar

    Allow Bookings to see non-organization calendars.

    The Bookings software will block out staff time based on what they have in their work calendar to reduced double booking. But what if staff uses non-organization calendars like Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook.com account?

    Can they link their non-organization calendars to Bookings so Bookings knows not to allow something to be schedule during a slot that is booked in the staff's personal (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) calendar?

      • Add description of the service and use Square POS

        I would love to have a area where you can add more descriptive service. I do Wedding and Portrait photography, and I would love to add a better description of the service the client will be getting.

        Also have integration with Square POS will be great.

        • Unique URL for a single service

          Want to be able to send a unique url to a customer to book a particular service. Not send them to the generic Bookings pages where they have to navigate to the service you have already determined they require.

              • Create Shortened URL for Bookings Page

                Ability to provide a shorter link to customers (or students, in my case) to access my Bookings page. Easy to append to an email signature.

                  My business is using exclusively Skype for Business for customer support. It would be very helpful to have Skype for Business integrated to Bookings.

                  • Select multiple days dynamically (like Airbnb)

                    Would like to select the range of dates to book a resource. Kind of like when you're in AirBnb or a hotel site and you click the start day and the end day. This is for booking resources in our company like wireless devices, projectors, etc.

                    • Allow service specific links

                      I'd like to be able to post or share targeted links to a specific service, rather than requiring customers to select the "right" service.

                      I could imagine something like:

                            Create a recurring booking for a customer so that I don't have to make multiple bookings each week/month.

                            Create a recurring time off block for one or more staff - like lunch every day 12-1 pm.

                            • Add Custom Fields to Calendar view

                              We'd like the ability to change the fields that display in the customer view. Our staff need to view custom fields as this allows us to prepare for bookings. Currently we have to open the booking instance and scroll down to custom fields. The issue with this is that there is a risk of bookings being incorrectly updated/deleted and it is time consuming.

                                There are cases where a business needs time before and after seeing a customer to handle a few tasks. Travel, clean-up, prep-work are all good examples. These are handled well with the "buffer" function, but on the Outlook calendar (not the Bookings calendar), the buffer shows up as part of the appointment time. Ideally would not...

                                • Microsoft Flow Connector to allow for data collection

                                  It would be very useful if you could allow Flow users to use data from individual bookings. For instance, I could check e-mail addresses against a list to confirm eligibility for the service (and send out e-mails in the case of a mismatch), assemble the data in an organised way by populating a SharePoint List, and automate e-mails with surveys days later.

                                  That way users could create their own workflows for their particular situations without clogging up the Bookings interface for those who just want a straightforward way to collect appointments.

                                    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.
