Incomplete - Booking System (v2.1)
By , for WP 4.2.2

Okay, so i really like this plugin. I was considering buying the premium(PRO) module. Then i found a few vital features were completely missing.

1)There is no way to properly cancel a booking. The calendar remains booked even if you cancel the order. But yet the order itself gets cancelled. So for example, if someone carelessly books 3 months as a 'test booking' or whatever, then those 3 months are unrecoverable(cannot be canceled). WTF???

2)The order/reference/reservation numbers DO NOT correspond. So if i have an order #145, the reservation number is 144. So when it comes to the end-user trying to find their CORRECT reference number to correctly pay for their booking, it becomes a guessing game. This will lead to MANY MANY people using incorrect reference numbers.

Also, the Plugin Author advises me "I don't thing is it OK to use the Booking System with WooCommerce for a booking portal. There are some features missing." Support Query

Thanks for the honesty, but then whats the use of this Booking Plugin if it cannot accurately book? The bottom line is that Booking Systems essentially deal with peoples money, and that is dangerous when its not done properly.

I am not sure how many other inconsistencies and function omissions there are. Personally, i believe we, as users, have a right to be informed of these problems BEFORE we decide to buy the plugin, or even download the free version. It will save a lot of time and money for us users.

The news release is awesome!!

Just enjoying the new Booking System with +WooCommerce. :D

Great Plugin!

This plugin is very customizable and will do anything I need for it to do in on my vacation rental property website. I will purchase the pro version as soon as I feel comfortable with all of options I am working with now. Would like to see other payment options, particularly authorize.net. It would be wonderful to be able to collect payments directly using the platform I have been using for quite some time.

Some missing important features in the pro version
By , for WP 4.1.1

Nice and useful plugin but some important features are missing to use it for hotels reservation :

- No calendar copy : not possible to copy/paste in calendars or duplicate them
- Not enough available filters in search : I found a workaround to define max people in a room, but it is very tricky and does not work if we did not precise a period. I would help if we could filter by several users extras fields (for instance : lift, animals accepted, ...)
- No search bar available : would be fine to can split search and results (search widget ?)
- Colors scheme : default colors are not very visible, would be fine to can customize from backend

It is really a pity, because again your plugin is very useful, and I hope these features will come

Good

this is very good.

Very poor documentation I'm puzzled!
By , for WP 4.1

I bought the pro version and it looks very nice but it’s extremely difficult to understand, documentation is very poor!

Documentation is not even up to date! In Back end - General information: Can’t find any FAQ in settings as shown in documentation screen dump, settings have entirely other look and why have double information? There's no extra info to the self explanatory menus.

The first three calendars have no delete basket, why is that? Bugg?
How do I make a basic set up with this plugin. I don´t understand the custom posts! How do I use them, what are they for? If choose to show the post it’s either to the page with same name or don’t show any content (broken link).

Tip! if you want to sell more of the pro version, make a comprehensive documentation or even better Youtube videos.

bugs, bugs, bugs, and useless support
By , for WP 4.0

We bought the Pro version, with every update we discover a new bug, they are adding silly features instead on keeping the focus on what the people is asking since more than 1 year. The lady Sabina from the support team is only able to answer 1/5 of the questions. You write 10 words she reads 2. Frustrating, annoying, waste of time, money, and very useful if you want to make your customers upset!

There are no services available for the period you selected. (Not Working)

i m facing this error how i remove it ???.

There are no services available for the period you selected.

Works fine but very basic
By , for WP 4.1

For straight on bookings this plugin is ok.
There is no possibility to enter downpayments or depostits.

Also amounts in currencies are not shown correctly:
€ 150,20 is shown as €150,2 Pretty ugly :)

Has some nice features, missing a fair amount of basics
By , for WP 3.9.2

The calendar layout is great, the method of selecting times on the client-side is fantastic, and the application itself is very sleek; it's not something that seems to be in huge demand but it's wonderful that this plugin allows you set set the price of each individual time slot.

Unfortunately it's missing a few basic essentials; as far as I've been able to figure out you have to manually select the days that you are available, type in the hours on those days that you're available, set the default price (optional), and then submit those changes - you should be able to choose default opening and closing times, have the calendar default to showing those times as available, and be able to set up a pricing scheme that is applied by default to each day without having to manually price them.

Overall there isn't enough in the free version that makes me want to buy the pro version, and I haven't been able to see anything of the pro version in order to figure out if it would be useful for my needs without having to buy it - a test site that demonstrates the admin side of the pro version would be ideal.
