Version 6.6 adds the ability to use ScheduleOnce without connecting it to a third-party calendar, as well as improved support for stakeholders who are not ScheduleOnce Users.
Working without a connected calendar
- Bookings are treated as busy time when not connecting to a calendar: Bookings made via a Booking page will block availability for that booking page even if a calendar is not connected.
- Automatic booking does not require a connected calendar: Since bookings from a page block availability for that page, automatic booking can be used without a connected calendar.
- Automatic booking is the default mode in Premium and higher plans: Since automatic booking does not require a connected calendar, it can be the default selection option.
- When a calendar is not connected, the owner receives calendar events in the confirmation email: Since the booking cannot be created in the owner's connected calendar, calendar events are sent in the scheduling confirmation email.
Booking with non-ScheduleOnce Users
We have also made an important enhancement to the feature that we used to call the "Additional email address". This feature was used to notify a stakeholder that is not a ScheduleOnce User on booking events. We now call this feature "Notification to a non-ScheduleOnce User" and we have upgraded its functionality to include calendar events in the scheduling confirmation email. Booking with non-ScheduleOnce Users is only available in the Enterprise plan.
