  1. 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.

    • Terms and Conditions listed as Terms of Sale in E-mails

      In the e-mail sent to customers, the confirmation has links for Terms of Sale and Privacy Policy. However, in the business information settings, Terms of Sale is listed as Terms and Conditions. The e-mail should reflect the same language so as to not confuse customers since they need to accept these on the bookings page.

      • 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

        • Allow customers to choose their time zone on the Booking Page

          In cases where customers are spread across time zones, they should be able to see the times listed on my Booking Page in a time zone that makes sense for them.

          • 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.

                We are happy to let you know that we recently completed work that lets you set up services that either last all day or that span multiple days. This feature was widely requested by Bookings customers and, if it’s not already available for you, it will soon be available for all Bookings customers to try.

                To find the controls that let you set up an all-day or multi-day service first, log into Bookings and click into the Service details page. On that page you’ll see a new “Days” picker under the “Default duration” section of the page – next to the “Hours” and “Minutes” pickers. If you do not see this feature, please try back in a few days… it can take a few weeks for new features to get out to everyone. If you do see it, you can use it to set the number of days, hours, or…

              • Customize other Parts of the Template

                I am planning to use Booking to disciplinary data and assign detention. I would like to be ale to customize other parts of the template. For example, instead of using the term 'Services,' I would like to use 'Infraction.'

                • Offer different services for different time slots

                  Would be great to have different services available at different times. For example we have a business hours service and an after business hours service that are at different rates.

                  • "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.

                      • Put custom fields in Email reminder

                        It would be great if we could put the custom fields in the email reminder. Say, if one of the custom fields was "Balance Due" we could put that information in the Email reminder so that the customer could prepare their payment.

                          The available dates are not quite dark enough. The first available shows up with a highlight - the other available dates need the same thing or at least be bold - more bold than they are now. Thank you,

                            • Have an option for no price shown at all for clients who pay an ongoing fee

                              We have clients that pay a fee for all of our services so having an option to not showing anything under price (checkbox to include or not include) would be hugely helpful.

                              • Custom availability by service.

                                Each session should have it's own settings for times available, with the option to default to the primary schedule. That way on weeks where are out of the office some, you can create a custom schedule of availability, and on normal weeks, you can default to the master availability.

                                  The service actually works well, but will not be a stand-alone replacement for other third-party scheduling options until you have a report function. As others have mentioned, you need to be able to show total number of appointments and be able to sort by day/week/year/customer/service/Calendar at a minimum.

                                    Full calendar only available to print, would be better if we could print individual staff days for example.

                                      • Let me specify "time on" as well as time off

                                        There are cases where I would just like to have a couple of slots availability to be booked but I don't want to change my "business hours" to reflect this. It would be nice to allow me to specify "time on" just like I can block out time using the time off feature.

                                          I would like to be able to export bookings to excel. I want to see all my services and details and review them on paper quarterly
