March 2024 Newsletter

Hello everyone! Welcome to our March 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 March

More For Upcoming Appointments — Team Member Info

This month, we released a second batch of updates for the Upcoming Appointments module, which is now making it possible to display the assigned Team Member Name and Profile Photo. These options are easily accessible through the WordPress Block Editor settings.

In Other News

WordPress 6.5 Update

The latest update, Wordpress 6.5, was unfortunately delayed for release on April 4, 2024. However, our team has been carefully testing and reviewing our plugins alongside the WordPress 6.5 release over the last few weeks and can confidently say Simply Schedule Appointments will be compatible with 6.5 when it comes out.

Please let us know if you happen to come across any quirks as you begin using SSA with WordPress 6.5. As always, we’re happy to help make sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Plugin Detective

Our latest YouTube video showcases one of our other plugins in our company ecosystem: Plugin Detective. Our founders built this plugin a few years ago as a part of a WordPress Plugin-a-Palooza competition – and, not surprisingly, brought home the gold! 

Since then, we’ve continued to maintain this little handy dandy plugin because it makes supporting SSA so much easier. We love using Plugin Detective to this day to help our own customers find plugin conflicts on their sites, and we hope you enjoy this quick tutorial video to see how it works.

Happy Spring!

We like to end each newsletter with a happy sendoff; with that said, Happy Spring everyone! We hope y’all are enjoying some better weather and pausing to smell the roses that are beginning to bloom. Thanks for stopping by; we’ll be back next month with another newsletter filled with goodies.

And, speaking of goodies…

Our Team’s Pet Photo of the Month

“Sometimes the prisons are in your mind.” this month’s pet photo highlight is of Rosie, part of our support team family. Here to teach us a lesson on mental roadblocks that we give ourselves, “there’s always another way,” or so we like to say. And, of course, we take that into our customer support philosophy!
