We’re really excited to finally announce the new Capacity feature for Simply Schedule Appointments! 🥳
With this new feature you’ll be able allow set amount of people to book overlapping appointments.
What Are Overlapped Bookings?
Let’s say, for example, if I have four tennis courts each with an hour-long appointment. If I set the capacity to “4” then I can have up to 4 people book the tennis courts at a time.
They also wouldn’t need to start at the same time—if I set my start times to every 15 minutes then I could potentially have bookings at 10AM, 10:15AM, 10:30AM, and a last one at 10:45AM.
How to Set Up Overlapped Bookings in Appointment Types
To begin using this feature simply go to the Appointment Type you’d like to update > Go to the Basics tab > Fill in the Capacity field.
The Capacity field will set the max amount of bookings that can overlap.
This new feature is only available for the Plus, Professional, and Business Editions. If you’re already using them, just make sure you’ve updated to the most recent version of the plugin (V126.96.36.199 or V188.8.131.52).
If you need help updating your plugin version or setting up your Appointment Types, feel free to send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bonus: This is all a part of our work toward our much-anticipated Staff feature, which we’re hard at work on getting completed and released for you. 🌟
