Premium version
By , for WP 1.01

I bought the premium plug-in because I needed optional services and multi-site compatibility, and I have not been dissappointed. I feel this is very reasonably priced, especially when compared to the alternatives out there, like Mindbody.com (£60.00 per month) and Eventbrite (which is not a WPress plug-in but charges a % for every sale).

After 6 months I paid Codepeople for some additional support to sort out a technical glitch I was experiencing and also get a change to my Paypal requirements. My queries were dealt with quickly, patiently and thoroughly by Karen/the support team, and I felt they went over and above what they needed to do for me.

As a small business owner/sole trader, this plug-in is essential for me to run my business efficently and I feel really good to know that the support is there if and when I need it. I'm really happy with the plug-in and feel it is better than anything else I have found. Thanks CodePeople.

Seriously? Making people pay to remove a feature?
By , for WP 3.8.1

I don't care what you say in the other reviews "it was the original purpose of the plugin"...bull. I bought one of your plugins before for one of my clients, and in that one, we had to pay to GET the paypal feature on it. And now? we dont need the paypal feature for one of your products, yet you are going to make us pay to not have it.
This plugin was pretty much perfect, and honestly you would have had me sold on having to pay to access custom forms and using it as a widget. I was about 5 minutes away from clicking the "buy" button your premium version, until I looked closer and realized you're actually making people pay to remove something that makes the form useless if they don't want their users to have to pay to book.
Making people pay for extra features = acceptable.
Making people pay to remove "features" that render the form useless unless otherwise paid for = low and incredibly cheap and honestly should not be allowed on the wordpress free plugins area.

Not so Satisfactory

Please provide an option for Sandbox Paypal & auto redirection option to "Thank you" page.

Excellent Support
By , for WP 3.8.1

The plugin installed no problem and I found customizing the form very straight forward and easy. I was having problems with some CSS though. I contacted support and after a few emails back and forth got some code changed. I'm just learning CSS, maybe the instructions weren't as obvious to me as they would have been to someone with more knowledge of this but Karen from the Support Team was awesome - always a quick reply and so helpful. Thank you so much for your help! I love this plugin!!

Freemium version has hardcoded PayPal
By , for WP 3.8.1

More freemium crap. It's hard coded to PayPal so if you don't use paypal, or don't want people to pay to schedule an appointment at all, you have to upgrade to pro. I've never seen a plugin force you to use paypal. It's usually the other way around. I tried another cal plugin and it works great. Try something else and don't support this crap.

If you want a Booking Callander - look no further, this is the best.

2 I wanted to make my own website, as a sole trader I didn't have the funds for most of the calendars. They were too complicated, I couldn't understand the terminology and they were too expensive. Also the more expensive calendars are not geared up for what I needed, which was to book groups or individuals in to do a one day oil painting workshop.
3 after reading about this one I realised that if I make the one off payment, then I would get help the help I needed. I did and someone worked with me, she was fab! She worked tirelessly with me to help me. Nothing was too much trouble. It is value for money.

I'm not sure if your allowed to show my "booking calendar" on my site but I'm sure they will delete this bit if it's not allowed. So that you can see it working.. [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ]

As a positive, building on what a lovely plugin it already is, I would love to see an up to date video clip on YouTube. There is one someone has put on, which helps but it is out of date. The videos really do help people and they would stop people like me wasting getting in touch for help.

Thank you for your help and support :-)

perfect plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

It's a perfect plugin for people giving classes, like yoga. You can make several bookings for the same date and time, like I need it.

Great and unique plugin
By ,

This plugin is really good. I think that is the only plugin for appointments that writes the appointment in your database and has all the features you need to design an appointment system. You are no dependant of other Webs.

New features in the last version are really usefull, and the traslation has been included. Great!

Congratulatios to the development team. They have others plugins really good, as Calculated Fields Form, for instance.

I have bought the pro version of appointments and looking forward to buy the pro version of Calculated Fields Form.

Great Stuff - passed all technical test - englisch an german

We´re using the software for the organisation of appointments with job applicants.

I can recommend it really very much. I would buy it again - and I WILL buy it again for another project.
