    If you are managing lots of services, avoid this entirely.

    Here is the use case we have.

    An employee needs to manage 10-15 services each. The work hours need to be different per service, and an employee needs to be able to have an 8am booking on 5 different services simultaneously. Cannot be done. You’ve got to create a dummy employee within the plugin per service to do this sort of thing, which is extremely time consuming and counter intuitive.

    It allows multiple managers, but you can’t assign specific employees to specific managers in the plugin, manager access just ends up being a free-for-all in the dashboard.

    Because of the above, we also cannot restrict even a manager only viewing appointments for the group of employees they manage.

    These are all things that anyone with common sense could be looking for, when using a bookings plugin.

    If you are doing anything but the most basic of bookings, go find something else entirely.

    Definitely don’t pay for it, as that doesn’t help at all.
