Bookly v13.3: Support for Staff Cabinet Add-on & New Functionality

By Categories: New release1.9 min read

We do appreciate your feedback on our forum and always aim at fulfilling our customers’ needs and requirements. The Bookly team keeps developing and maintaining the #1 plugin for online scheduling to provide customers with the most helpful features.

The latest Bookly v13.3 includes the following new functionality and fixes.

Support for Staff Cabinet Add-on

This add-on will allow your employees manage their bookings, personal info, services, prices, and more, on the front-end, with no need to access the WordPress admin panel.

A website administrator can set visibility limitations for staff members, so they will be able to view, work with and update only those profile elements which they have permission and access to.

Main features:

  • View a calendar and choose a preferred mode: Month, Week or Day
  • Add new appointment, approve, edit or cancel scheduled appointments
  • View and update personal details
  • Choose services and edit prices
  • Update capacity and deposit values
  • Choose, set and edit special hours (if Special Hours add-on is active)
  • Manage staff schedule, days off, special days (if Special Days add-on is active)
  • Export calendar information into a CSV file

See more details and screenshots in our documentation.

Try this demo (both front-end and back-end version) to get a better understanding of how the Staff Cabinet add-on works.
