Today we're happy to announce the availability of two new features 👍.
1. Choose who can repeat bookings
Owners can now choose which users are able to create weekly-repeating bookings. For example, the owner can choose to give everyone this ability, grant it only to those users having one or more chosen tags, or grant it to nobody except admins. This can all be reviewed and changed from the owner-accessible Booking window & lock-in settings area.
2. Accept repeating bookings with payments
The new controls discussed above imply that you can now also give online-paying users the ability repeat their bookings weekly.
For example, instead of having to create three separate bookings for three identical Monday sessions and pay for each one separately, a user can now create just one three-week repeating booking and pay the total series price in a single transaction. Here's how this looks in the booking flow for a venue with upfront payments setup:
Rest assured that we've enabled these new features safely in an "opt-in" way. That is, unless the owner chooses to explicitly modify the settings, everyone will continue to be able to book the way they did previously. So nothing will change if you don't want it to.
As always, we invite you to reach out to us if you have any questions about the new features. Enjoy your weekend!
