Appointments Tab

The Appointments tab is the main listing of all your bookings. This is the where you will be able to view more information about each user’s scheduled appointment.

Viewing Bookings as the Administrator on Your Website

A website administrator can view the list of bookings by selecting Appointments > Appointments from the left-side menu in the WordPress dashboard.

Other Ways to View Bookings

Aside from the plugin dashboard, we offer a few different ways for admins, customers, and team members to view their bookings.

Visit our guide on Displaying Booked Appointments to learn more.

Searching Appointments

Use the Search bar to narrow the appointments list quickly based on the user’s booking information. Search is available for all of the following bits of info:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone
  • Customer Information Fields (both the free Basic edition fields and the custom fields available in the Premium editions) such as single or multi-line text, radio buttons, and checkboxes.
  • Resources

The Search feature is not case-sensitive, but it does take spaces into account.

The appointment day and time are not searchable. To help you find appointments based on their start time, use the Date Range View and Filters.

Searching appointments using keywords found within their entered customer information.

Switching Views from Upcoming or Past Appointments

To switch between the Upcoming and Past Appointment views, click on the Upcoming Appointments header. Choose the view you’d like to see from the drop-down menu:

  • Upcoming Appointments: All Today and future appointments
  • Past Appointments: All Past Appointments
  • Date Range: Choose a Start and End Date to view appointments inside that range

All views are displayed in chronological order based on the start time of the appointment.

There will be two fields – one to choose Appointment Types and one to choose Appointment Status.

  • Appointment Types: Choose none or more (if none is selected, then it will include all of the appointments)
  • Appointment Status: Choose one or more
    • Booked
    • Canceled
    • Pending Payment
    • Pending Form Submission
    • Abandoned

The filters apply automatically, if you’d like to remove the filters, select Reset Filters.

Date Range Filters

The Date Range view also includes two more fields to filter your appointments: Start Date and End Date.

You could use both Date fields to create a range between two dates. For example, I can get all the appointments between July 1st, 12 AM, and July 4th, 12 AM.

Or, you could use a single one of the Date fields.

  • Only Use Start Date: Get all appointments beginning at this date
  • Only Use End Date: Get all appointments up to this date

Canceled and Abandoned Appointments

Canceled and abandoned appointments still appear on the list. But, their title changes to add the Canceled note, and their listing is faded.

Load More Appointments

If you have more bookings that don’t appear on the page, to continue viewing appointments on the list, select Load More Appointments at the end of the list.

It should glow green when there’s more to load and fade to grey when there is no more to load.
