Deployment Notes: May-July 2020.
Team Setmore’s back with oodles of updates. Grab yourself a coffee and we’ll catch you up.
From mobile app updates to name-changes, we aim to ensure you’re receiving the best experience possible. Over the past three months, we’ve spent time adding a few new (and jaw-dropping) features to improve your service. So, without further ado, here’s what we’ve been up to.
Oh na na, what’s my new name? Setmore Slot-Blocker renamed
Introducing… Setmore Events! That’s right, the humble slot-blocker has a new moniker but works in exactly the same way. Set up a Setmore Event to block some time on your calendar, so clients cannot book you during that period. It’s ideal if you want to take a break or organise your lunch outings for the week ahead.
How to add an event:
- Select a time on your calendar
- Click on ‘Service’ and choose ‘Event’
- Confirm the time period and give your event a name
- Save it and enjoy your break!
Let’s keep it short and sweet – Setmore URL Shortener
In a nutshell, Setmore’s URL shortener allows you to cut down and personalise the booking link you send to customers. For example:
https://yourcompany.setmore.com/18nskanxksnoflsoujkhdbs (…It’s a bit of a mouthful)
https://yourcompany.setmore.com/johnsmith (It’s short and sweet)
But what’s the value of this? Optimised and memorable booking URLs business are more professional and build trust. Edit the tail-end of your Staff Booking Page’s URL to what works best for you and your customers. It could include your name or that of a specific service.
To customise your URL, head to Settings > Staff > Staff Booking Page and click the edit button to the right of the link:
