Appointment Booking Calendar allows you to accept online bookings from a set of available time-slots in a calendar.
This plugin didn't work at first, likely due to some configuration of a client's older version of WP on his site.
But that was no problem. CodePeople support tweaked it and the plugin now works great. Perfect for our needs!
great appointment plugin
Great support, even for the free version.
Works perfectly, does everything I need, and does it well.
The appointment dates selection is the best I've seen, setup is easy and support through plugin's website is good.
I really like this plugin, has a very pretty booking calendar. It's useful when PayPal is used to process bookings, fully featured in that case. Cons: the form have to be manually edited or opt for a different version for having a visual form designer integrated in the plugin. An easier way to edit the form will be a nice feature, at least some checkboxes to select which fields display. Please add it to make this an even better plugin.
Hi your plug-in is fantastic! I was looking for a one-step appointment plugin and assumed that I'd have to modify a plugin but you've got a fully pre-built one! Though I installed the plug-in a minute ago there's so many other possibilities that I can think of a million uses already. Don't need any of the extra functions but I'll get the pro version just to say thanks.
I work for a chiropractor that wanted to launch online appointments without having a huge back end that took multiple steps just to make a simple appointment. We didn't need billing (which this can do), and we didn't need to store our patients information or provide logins. We just wanted a super easy to use plug in that made the appointments and put them on our calendar. This is perfect! The price of the plug in is great, and we did request some customizations. The cost for the customizations was very fair. I had a lot of questions and needed some help here and there making things just right, and their customer support was always prompt and very helpful. This is been perfect for us, and we are very excited to be implementing our new appointment system.
I am talking about premium version as free version is quite limited and it forces you to use Paypal so let's consider this as almost 100% commercial plugin.
The plugin is full of potential for the price, specially comparing prices for other pro calendar versions out there. More than enough set of configurations but without being overwhelming or extremely difficult to use.
In particular I liked the way you can set up your calendar spots in an individual fashion, so you can end with trully custom calendars. It is possible to set up each appointment time slot for any given time and date, with its specific duration and its specific max capacity... Because yes: (message for other pro calendar developers out there) real people and business timetables are messy, difficult and sometimes even weird (yes some client of mine has appointment slots of 5 minutues, and then of 3 minutes, and then of 20 minutes, and the next day is different, and so on...).
Very quick and professional support (answer and update in less than 24 hours), and the code is clean and understandable so I could tweak it easily to add user access control support for specific roles and user groups.
(Although not very fair with the tricky commercial strategy regarding free version. I think is adviced anyway in plugin description)
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.
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!!
