Let’s see them in details:

A new option that will skip the assistant selection step on front-end but still possible from back-end to the salon administrator.

A new option that allows you to disable the “Second shift” option in case you don’t need it.

New parameters for the [salon_booking_calendar] short-code
We’ve added two new parameters:
visibility = “public”
in order to make the calendar visible to the public
days = “10”
in order to decide how many days to be displayed for the upcoming reservations
We’ve developed a complete set of API in order to use Salon Booking System inside your third party platforms.

We also made some improvements to the plugin interface:
– “Amount to be paid” inside the booking details on back-end and email notification
– We’ve added more booking details inside the SMS notifications
– We’ve added a real-time availability check on the “assistants” drop-down menu inside the back-end booking creation page.
A bunch of bugs have been fixed:
– Fixed bug on customers search field
– Fixed bug on adding customers from back-end
– Fixed back-end calendar starting week day
– Fixed service booking direct link
– Fixed bug on custom field saving
We are working on “Salon Booking Mobile app” for IOs and Android platforms dedicated to salon administrators and collaborators where they can control, add and manage their reservations. This app will be provided for free to our Premium users.
The app will be available by the end of 2018. Stay tuned!
We are going to release a new add-on called “Salon Booking chat-bot“. Your customers can book a reservation trough your Facebook fanpage messaging system.
