Simply Schedule Appointments works with your logged-in WordPress users to provide various benefits.
If you’re using a WordPress membership service on your site, SSA can help you run a smoother experience for your customers to book appointments.
SSA ties with WordPress users in the following ways:
- To keep track of appointments based on email
- Populate email and name fields automatically
Tracking Appointments Based on Email Address
If someone books an appointment using an email address associated with a WordPress user, SSA links that appointment to the user even if they’re logged out at the time of booking.
Place the module or shortcode on a page where your logged-in users can access it, and they’ll be able to see their booked appointments. From there, they can also modify the information for their appointments.
Records the Currently Logged-In User Email Address
If a logged-in user uses an email address different from their account’s, SSA records both email addresses. The two addresses are seen on the Appointment Details Page.
Auto-populate Name and Email Fields
Logged-in users will see their Name and Email Address automatically populate on the booking form. That’s because we pull that information directly from their WordPress account.
- Name: WordPress Display Name
- Email: WordPress User Email
You’ll need custom code if you’d like to add more fields to auto-populate based on your user’s profiles. We offer a PHP filter, /customer_information/get_defaults, to help you accomplish this.
Though this feature doesn’t work for those logged in as admins – that’s because if they’re on the booking form, we’re assuming they’re trying to book on behalf of a customer.
