Archive Bookings

 

New

  

In an attempt to clean up the bookings view from test, accidental or incorrect bookings, we have introduced the 'Archive Bookings' feature.

You can now remove bookings from this view by adding them to your Archive. In order to do this, the booking must be Cancelled first. Simply select the Cancelled booking you wish to Archive and click the 'Archive' button which sit's at the top right of the pop up.

If you accidentally archive a booking, you can always immediately 'unarchive' the booking by clicking the button again.Please see below for a short example:

Enhanced Date Selection

 

Improvement

  

Selecting the date you wish to view in the 'Bookings' view for both Events and Collections has previously been quite confusing. The only dates available to select were those with associated bookings. This often left users thinking that the disabled dates were unavailable to book or blocked out.

We have now revised this date selector with three main changes:

  • All dates are now clickable (even if no bookings exist)
  • Small green dots are displayed below any dates with bookings
  • The dates of your event in which you are accepting bookings are circled

We hope this provides further clarity and improves your experience when navigating bookings. If you have any feedback or would like the calendar view to display more information, please get in touch!

Managing bookings - UI and functionality update

 

New

 

Improvement

  

Handling booking changes just got a whole lot easier with the latest update to the booking modal UI. You can now easily find the information you want in a glance, and make quick edits to the booking.

This improvement should make handling customer requests to change the email on a booking, add an extra guest and resend the booking confirmation email a breeze.

Editing a booking

You can now simply click on a booking to open the booking modal and then click the edit icon next to either the name email or time/date of a booking to make updates.

What's more you can then click the resend confirmation email button to make sure the customer knows their booking has been updated.

Similarly you can edit the date and time of the booking and adjust the size of the booking by adding additional guests.

INVITES 💌

 

New

  

One of the most highly requested features is now live!

Take control of your events and offer unique experiences for your guests all with the help of invites!

Invites act as personalised booking links. You can pre-populate your guest invite with their name, email and any private internal data you may wish to remember. Once your guests receive the link there will be no need for them to enter their details, making the booking process even faster than before.

If you choose to personalise invites, guest's do not have the power to change the details you entered, making these links secure, only to be used by those intended!

CleanShot 2021-12-12 at 17.19.36.gif

You also have the option to batch create a set of up to 1,000 unique invites, each with their own unique invite code. Merge them into your own personal event email or simply use them to retain greater control over your attendees.

Want to know exactly how they work? Learn more here.

Remember, we're always open to feedback so if you have any custom requests, drop us a message

Tracking booking sources

 

New

  

You can now add the parameter source_ref={replacewithyoursource} to the end of booking links.
