New Features: Appointments, Service Categories, Hours.

This week brings you several key updates + one humble request.

Drag-and-drop appointments

booking time

When you need to reschedule an appointment, instead of manually re-entering the new beginning and end times, now you can simply drag the appointment out of its old time slot and drop it into a new one. Your customers and staff will each receive updated reminders of their rescheduled appointment. This works for our IE users too!

New drag-and-drop service categories

The same goes for our brand new service categories function. Not only have we added categories for your services, but also you can arrange them by dragging and dropping. Categories are especially handy if you’re maintaining an especially large or nuanced list of services.


Under Settings > Services, you can now drag and drop services into whichever category you like. Say you’re a caterer. By setting up a new category called “Deliveries,” you can add (and assign) delivery-related services, while differentiating these from your non-delivery services.

Using categories lets you access your services quickly, without slogging through a big list. If you offer a wide variety of services, you’re going to appreciate this one. It works just like the folders in your email.

Business hours that play nice with staff hours

Previously, Setmore managed your business hours separately from your staff hours. If your business expanded its hours of operation, you would have to update each staff member’s hours individually to reflect that schedule change. Clunky!

Now, under Settings > Business Hours, just click the option “Update staff working hours whenever I edit my business Hours.” You can update your staff hours en masse. Not clunky!

Central European Time Zone 

Updated local time zones now cover businesses in the Central European Time (CET) zone, GMT+1:00.

No Charge

To clarify that your free/gratis services are actually free/gratis, they’re now marked “no charge” instead of “$0” (or €0 or Re.0 or £0…).*



Editor’s Note: This is an outdated post from 2012 and Setmore has been revamped with more features and a new look. Continue reading to learn more about service categories and business hours in the updated Setmore app.

Business hours and the staff working hours

1. To change the business hours, Go to Apps & Integrations and click the Configure button under “Your Booking Page.”
