We track requests for new capabilities and keep working on the new functionality so that you can get more with Bookly every day!

In today’s update, we release new features that meet the most popular requirements and help you manage your booking system easier and more effectively.

Check out the functionality included in the Bookly PRO version 5.4.

Set up categories and services for every booking form

Now when you set up the look of the Services form, you can choose which categories and services you wish to display to your clients. This way, you can create service-specific forms that you will use on separate web pages.

In the Appearance section > Services form > Categories step, click on the area with the category title. In the Categories list on the right, choose Custom. Then select which categories you’d like to make viewable for your customers.

If you’d like to make a form where you can sell a single service, you can hide the categories and services steps (click Settings in the upper right corner) and then define one service in the Custom drop-down, as described above.

Hide times input for recurring appointments

If you use Bookly Recurring Appointments (Add-on), you can now disable the “how many times” field on the Repeat step. Your clients will only have the option to specify the date until which they want to repeat an appointment and the repeat interval.
