Version 4.0 adds support for services and a number of important improvements:
You can now create any type of services and enable any number of staff members to accept service appointments directly in their personal calendars. Services can be used by a sole provider under a personal MeetMe page or as part of a complete business setup with multiple staff members and locations. See a live services example or watch our new services video.
New navigation on MeetMe and BookNow pages
We have introduced a new navigation framework for the user side of MeetMe and BookNow pages. This navigation summarizes each completed step and also allows the user to go back and change it. We believe that it will significantly improve the user experience when making bookings with you.
Email name label
It is now possible to customize the name label on the ScheduleOnce mailer email that is sent to your users/customers. Prior to 4.0, all scheduling confirmation and reminder emails were sent from firstname.lastname@example.org with "ScheduleOnce Mailer" as the email name. With this new release it is now possible to change the email name label to your name or your business name, so that users and customers will recognize the email as coming from you. This customization is done in the Account settings in the Account page.
Ordering of MeetMe pages
It is now possible to easily change the order of MeetMe pages. It is also possible to change the order of services and service categories.
Time filter on the home page
We have added a time filter on the home page that shows activities from the last 3 days by default. You can change this filter to show different timeframes and use it together with the other filters in the home page. This new filter will eliminate the need to delete activities and will make it easier to find the activities you need.
Consolidated calendar connection section
We have added a new calendar connection section to the MeetMe page settings that consolidates all calendar connection settings in one place. We hope that this change will make it easier to understand how calendar connection works and make it easier to setup the system according to your requirements.
Only display consecutive time slots
We have added a setting that allows you to only display consecutive time slots. For example, if you have availability from 8:00am - 5:00pm, a booking duration of 90 minutes, and want time slots to show every 90 minutes you will see slots at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00, 12:30, etc. No other slots will be shown in between. This setting is available in the Booking section in Inbound settings.
Schedule page improvements
The Schedule page is used to approve booking requests and for finding a time in outbound scheduling. We have made some improvements to the page to make it simpler and easier to use.
Non blocking mode in Automatic booking
Following user requests we have made it possible to accept any number of bookings per slot by allowing to use the Busy time not blocking mode in Automatic booking. It is good to use this mode when you want to fill an event or class and you have no limit on the number of attendees.
