The Salon Booking
These bugs have been fixed and we released this minor 3.8.2 version.
This new release of Salon Booking plugin is the demonstration of our commitment for a continuous improvement of this powerful tool.
We want to offer you the best appointment booking system for Salons and we work harder and harder to accomplish that.
Now let’s see what’s new on this release:
Booking rules improvements
We’ve added a new option inside every single rule called “Always enabled”.
This option is made to offer you more control over your available week days during the whole year.
If you have a weekly schedule that changes during the year now you can specify the time range of validity of every single rule.
This option has been added to Assistants and Services available rules too.
Settings > Booking rules
This is a new tool that gives you the possibility to export your past and future reservations into a CSV file specifying the date range you are interested in.
Settings > Calendar
Custom email logo
Now you can upload your own logo to personalize your email notifications and empower your brand identity.
Settings > General
Custom messages to your customers
Now you can send a personal message to a customer using the dedicated box inside the single reservation details page. You can use it when you need to change a reservation details and inform your customer.
Bookings > booking details page
Search field for customers
We’ve added a search field inside the “Customers” section that will simplify your customers searches.
More back-end bookings search filters
To simplify your searches among your bookings now you can benefit of different filters by “user name”, “assistant” and “status”.
We’ve added this new option that in combination with “Disable bootstrap css” could be helpful when your bootstrap based theme has some conflicts with our bootstrap assets.
Settings > General
Bug fixes and improvements
We’ve fixed a bunch of bugs and made some improvements too:
– Bug with Cyrillic alphabet
– Holidays rule issues
– Fixed HTML markup bug into front-end booking form
– Selective Js and Css loading of bootstrap files into the back-end
– Dummy content load once
Please update your translations as new text strings have been added.
Well, that’s it for the moment.
As usual if you see something wrong please report it to us.
Have a nice week.
After three weeks since the last release we are ready again with a new version that will offer you brand new features and some improvements.
Let’s start describing all of them:
– Email and SMS followup
We are pretty sure that as a Salon owner you need to keep in contact with your customers. With this option you will be able to automatically send a custom email message or/and SMS after a specified number of days after the last appointment with you.
– Customers main statistics
We want you to be aware of critical information about your customers figures and habits about their appointments at your salon. So we have improved “customers statistics” section into the back-end.
– Alphabetically sorting services on back-end
As WordPress do for normal post we have added this option even for services in order to allows you to have a different views of them into back-end. Alphabetically services sorting doesn’t affect your custom front-end order, is just a temporal representation inside the back-end.
– Booking my account page redesign
We’ve redesigned this page to make it more visually appealing and more usable for your customers.
– Manage booking button inside notification email and auto-login
Once you have enabled “booking cancellation” option and set the “Booking my account” page we’ll display a “MANAGE BOOKINGS” button inside every notification email sent to the customers.
This button allows your customers to easily access into their “Booking my account” page without login as an “auto login” script has been implemented.
That’s all for the moment, see you on the next release.
For more details on the bug fixes made with this release we invite you to have a look at readme.txt file inside Salon Booking folder.
We are ready to introduce you our new release.
Our improvements process keeps on without rest to provide you a better booking system and a more valuable experience for your customers.
Let’s start with the brand new features added in this 3.6 version:
– Decimals and thousand options
Now you can decide how to represent decimals and thousand for your pricing list accordingly with your country habits.
Settings > Payments
– Services bookable limit
If you want to limit the number of services bookable at the same time now you have a brand new option to accomplish this need.
Settings > Check-out
– Automatic unpaid reservations cancellation
You can now enable this option if you want that unpaid reservations to be cancelled automatically after a defined time range that you can even set.
When this option is enabled your customers will see a message on the last step of the booking process and even inside their personal booking page in order to hurry them to complete the online payment.
Settings > Payments
– Reservations calendar by assistant
We’ve added a new short-code [salon_assistants_calendar] that will display a calendar of the next days days with the upcoming reservations grouped by assistant.
With this calendar you’ll have a quick view of your assistants weekly agenda.
Just place this short-code inside a page. This page will be visible only to logged-in users, such as your assistants.
– SMS alphanumeric sender ID supported
Now you can use your business name as SMS notification sender ID
Settings > General
after some days off to recover the energies we are ready to make a new release of Salon Booking plugin.
The 3.5 version is ready to offering you brand new interesting features and continuous improvements.
Let’s see which are the new features we’ve added:
This is a brand new option available when you use the “High end” booking method.
“Service break” is an option that you can use when you have a service that is delivered in two moments separated by a break.
For example “Hair color application”. Your assistant applies the color to your client for about 15 minutes, then the application needs a 30 minutes of break before the hair are washed. During this break your assistant could work on another client right?
So if you set the “Service break” option on a specific service the booking system will allows new reservations even during the service break.
FORCE GUEST CHECKOUT
Let’s say you don’t want to store information on your customers after their checkout and you want them to fill the checkout form with their details every time they make a new reservation. Then, in this specific case you could enable this option inside “Settings > ” tab.
Consider that when “Force checkout” option is enabled your customers will not be able to log-in inside your website to control their personal page.
IMPROVED REPORTS SECTION
Now you can count on multiple kind of reports:
– Reservations and revenues
– Reservation and revenues by assistant
– Reservation and revenues by service
– Reservation and revenues by customer
As usual we’ve fixed some bugs and made some performance improvements.

We are ready to announce the second official add-on for Salon Booking: Mollie payment method.
If you are based in Netherlands probably you know very well this online payments platform and now you can use it for your Salon’s reservations.
Mollie provides a fully PCI Compliant and secure way to collect payments with iDeal, Credit Card, Bancontact / Mister Cash, SOFORT Banking, Overbooking, Bitcoin, PayPal, paysafecard and AcceptEmail.
Using Mollie SSL certificate is not required on your site, and you don’t have to worry about PCI compliance. Customers select their favorite payment method at checkout, and are redirected to the Mollie or their bank’s site to finish the payment process. You benefit from easy, secure payment processing, and improve customer satisfaction by offering multiple payment methods. When an order is placed using iDeal, the customer chooses the correct bank and is taken to iDeal to make a secure payment via Mollie. iDeal works with ten large banks in the Netherlands: ING, ABN AMRO, Rabobank, SNS Bank, Regions Bank, Friesland Bank, Triodos, ASN Bank, Van Lanschot, and Knab to provide inexpensive, secure payment processing.
We are ready with a new version that we hope you’ll enjoy.
We’ve added two interesting features:
1 – Front-end booking form colour customiser

Just go to “Settings > Style” and play with three colours settings. We’ve also added a realtime preview of your new colours to keep you customisation as much simple as possible.
2 – Check-out as a quest option
We’ve added ad new tab section inside “Settings” called “Check-out”. Here you can find “Enable guest check-out” option.
If enabled users can choose to checkout without creating an account inside your WordPress install.
