2020 was a year like no other. In response to unprecedented challenges, many of us transformed the way we do…
Deployment Notes: July 2021.
Your app is continually evolving. When you signed up, you might’ve been motivated by the Teleport video integration, automating reviews, your custom Booking Page, or a mix of features. What was then is so much better now.
Team Setmore utilizes your feedback (and your customers’ feedback) to improve the online booking experience every day. Here’s what we cooked up in July.
Smarter tracking with Google Analytics.
Barriers to booking impact your productivity. Whether a customer can’t pick between services, reconsiders booking after seeing the cost, or another barrier, you want to know about it.
With the Google Analytics integration, you’ll see your customers’ self-scheduling process broken down into events. This pinpoints exactly when a customer steps back from scheduling an appointment through your Booking Page.
All you need is your custom GA code and countless visitor insights await you.
For example, if a large part of your audience views your services and exits, perhaps your service names and descriptions need more detail. If many visitors reach the point of payment and kick rocks, that could mean you need to review your service costs.
Greater knowledge of your visitors’ scheduling preferences can help you tailor your Booking Page. Get the data, test, and learn what fills your calendar faster.

EasyShare coming through.
New feature EasyShare is now available for accounts created after June 29, 2021. Been with us a while? We appreciate your patience – the wait won’t last long.
As your business grows, you’ll add more service types and staff to your Setmore account. Each service and staff profile has its own booking link. With EasyShare, you can access all of your booking links in one place.
- Hit the EasyShare icon in your Setmore web app (below the Settings cog in the left-side nav).
- Hover over a service or staff profile and a ‘Copy Link’ button shows. Click it.
- Then, simply paste the link where it needs to be – chats, emails, LinkedIn posts and more.
Rather than directing customers to your full Booking Page, you can share the most relevant service or staff links. Not only that, EasyShare feeds into an effective link building strategy for your business, which helps your Booking Page appear in more local search results.
