Captain’s Changelog: April 2018.
Spring cleaning! We’ve doubled our efforts to squash as many bugs in the Setmore app as possible. So, for this month, while you’ll get some of the usual updates on new features still in progress, we’re also showcasing a long list of glitches and various other wrinkles that have now been ironed out. Continue reading for details.
Automated review requests
Online reviews are critical to every business, since they help build up your social cred and encourage new and potential customers to book a service with you. To these ends, we’ve introduced automated review request emails. Now after each appointment, Setmore will automatically send an email to the customer, asking them to rate their service and to pre-book their next appointment on your public Booking Page.
This should help increase the number of reviews on your Booking Page while getting you more appointments overall. You can edit and publish customer reviews in Setmore by going to Apps & Integrations > Your Booking Page (Configure) > Reviews.
Note: If you don’t want Setmore to petition customers to post a review, go to the Reviews submenu and click the toggle switch in the top-right corner to deactivate the Reviews feature. Click here to learn more about Reviews in Setmore >
Steady progress: mobile payments, tablet app, speed boosts

Bug fixes – “Spring Cleaning” edition
This month we’ve embarked on a quest to squash as many bugs as possible, and it won’t stop here. We’re committing to a bug-free Setmore by year’s end, starting with this tip of a gradually shrinking iceberg:
- Fixed a critical issue that caused the previous week’s appointments to sometimes appear under the current week’s dates and times.
- If Booking Page payments are enabled, customers can no longer navigate backwards once they reach the payment screen.
- When customizing your Booking Page URL, the Setmore platform will now correctly notify you if the URL is already taken.
- When a paid attendee is deleted from a class session, you may now refund that attendee’s service cost under the Settings > Payments > History tab.
- Fixed a design issue that caused long service titles to break across columns under Settings > Payments > History.
- Fixed a design issue that was showing the Stripe integration as deactivated when it was actually activated.
- Staff logins with “Receptionist” access can no longer unmerge a merged customer profile (this is intended to be an Admin-only capability).
- Only users with “Admin” level access may now upgrade or downgrade a Setmore account.
- Fixed an issue that caused the Calendar page to sometimes continuously reload itself.
- When converting a single appointment to a recurring appointment, the original appointment’s label will no longer copy over into the new series of recurring appointments.
- All class notifications and reminder emails are now enabled by default for new Setmore users.
Stay tuned for future updates!
