February 2024 Foxy Newsletter

Hello everyone! Welcome to our February newsletter for Simply Schedule Appointments. This is where we gather all the information about our newest updates and other plugin-related news into one short and sweet summary each month. 


Simply Schedule Appointments Updates Released in February

Let’s go over all the highlights for February — Just make sure to update to the latest version from your website so that you can also receive all these new goodies!

New Booking Flow Time Views

This month, we released new Views for the Booking Flow feature: Rows and Block.

Rows Time View Setting Interface.
Block Time View Setting Interface.

Rows View

The Row View allows you to display the time slots in neat rows organized by the Time of Day sections (Night, Afternoon, Evening, Morning). This is an excellent View for booking calendars that are placed in long vertical sections on a web page.

Time Slots Organized into rows according to their corresponding Time of Day categories.

Block View

The Block View allows you to display the time slots in left-to-right order taking up as much space horizontally before starting a new line. This is a good option for booking calendars that want to keep it simple. Removing the Time of Day sections helps some schedules avoid ending up with sparse columns due to limited time slots.

  • Upgraded Appointment Type selection, including the ability to select a subset of calendars and the option to choose using Labels.

“Best support for a plugin we’ve ever had. I highly recommend this plugin for a free booking solution that works well on all devices and is easy to set up. I tried at least 3 other plugins and never will change to anything else! Good job, SSA team!.”
