Brindle Booking, How Far You’ve Come!

by Apr 8, 2021News & Updates

We launched Brindle Booking in late 2020 amid a global pandemic, a slouching economy, and a slew of personal struggles amongst the team. However, like you, we’ve weathered the storm, and now that Spring has arrived, let’s just say there’s a collective sigh of relief knowing that we’ve made it to the other side of that particularly dark winter. Luckily, Brindle Booking has been received in a glowing embrace from thousands of customers, and from that new well of users we’ve gained priceless insight, feedback, and suggestions. Naturally, and with a huge thanks to our customers, Brindle Booking is all the better for it, and quickly becoming the best way to book appointments for WordPress, if we do say so ourselves. Though powerful from its first iteration, Brindle Booking is now a new beast, with a new release today bringing even more features. To that effect, check out some of the new features we’ve added since launching the original plugin below!

  • Advanced Sorting (Services and Categories): You can now drag and drop Categories and Services to control the order they will appear in the front-end dropdown menus.
  • Bulk Delete (Services): You can now bulk-select and bulk-delete services.
  • Mobile View Overhaul: Mobile view has now been vastly improved, with Previous/Next buttons area now anchoring to bottom of phone’s browser window, and overall scrolling issues now resolved.
  • Ability to Specify “From” Name in Emails: You can now specify the “From” name that will appear in your email notificaitons.
  • Custom Email Subjects: You can now customize the subject that appears in the notificaitons sent to Staff members and visitors in the notifications tab.
  • Page Embedding: The Brindle Booking front-end interface can now be embedded directly into a page via our new shortcode (located in the help tab). You can see a demo here.
  • Dynamic Per-Service Pricing: You may no combine free services with priced services: If a service is free, the payment method options will be hidden automatically. In the same instance, if the service has a price assigned to it, the payment options will show.
  • Per-page code loading: You now have the ability to pre-load Brindle Booking code on any page you like, making Brindle Booking even leaner than previous iterations. If you only have Brindle Booking on one page of your site, you can specify that code should be loaded ONLY on that page vs. site-wide.
  • Redirect Feature:You now have the option to redirect a visitor to any link after they have booked an appointment.
  • Ability to Edit Notifications in Admin: Brindle Booking now allows you to customize the message that is sent to both customers/clients and the admin and staff members. This is done in the new “Notifications” tab in admin.
  • New “Notifications” tab in Admin: Per the above item, admin will now also receive notifications via email when an appointment is booked (via global schedule as well as appointments made for staff members). For staff members, this will also be sent to the email used when setting up their profile. If using a “global schedule” it will only go to the email set in your site’s wp-admin settings.
  • Additional Time Increments: Added 2 hour and 4 hour increments to the schedule.
  • Translation Support: Implementation of .po files for full translation support via plugins like Loco Translate.
  • Non-Bookable Dates Overhaul: Days with no bookable slots assigned are now non-selectable on front end interface, and a “No appointments are available, please select a different day.” message appears in the slider of step 2 if the user navigates to days with no slots.
  • No Time Slots Message: A tooltip now appears in the calendar alerting users if a day has no selectable slots.
  • 24 Hour Clock: Added the option to switch the schedule to a 24 hour clock, or a 12 hour clock.
  • Staff Member Support: Support of multiple staff members, each with their own schedule and access to change/edit their availability. Staff members will receive confirmations to all bookings via a unique email, and you will be able to select which members to include on the front end. Additionally, you can still use the “Global Schedule” which omits the staff members and uses a single booking interface.
  • Multiple Currencies: You can now use multiple currencies, all of which will charge as expected in the currency set in admin, as well as displaying the selected currency’s symbol in all steps of the booking interface.
  • GDPR Acknowledgment: Ability to add an Acknowledgement to the booking process so the user must confirm to agree to privacy policy, terms of conditions, etc.
  • Fixes, Compatibility Tweaks, etc: We can’t even list how many customers we’ve helped via compatibility fixes for specific themes/plugins, and the numerous spit and shine tweaks we’ve made, but rest assured, there were many, and Brindle Booking is as stable as ever.

Not bad for a few months’ work, am I right? Trust also that MANY more features are on the way as our developers are working hard to ensure Brindle Booking rivals our (much more expensive) competitors. Be sure to follow our public roadmap here, and if you haven’t gotten a copy of Brindle Booking, you can join our thousands of other customers, and try Brindle Booking free now.
