In the last month WooCommerce Appointments has grown a lot and is now faster than ever, easier to use and works like a charm with WooCommerce 3.0. Ever since 2.0 update, we have been working hard to optimize the plugin for bigger appointment sites. Everything has been restructured to make it work faster and it is fully optimized for faster development.
Customize Appointment Calendar
You can now customize appointment selection color from your Customizer and no coding is required. Easily match your theme’s design in just a few seconds. Selection color should be in dark hue. If you want more advanced customization, use Additional CSS option from the customizer.
WooCommerce 3.0 Compatibility
The new WooCommerce release includes many new features and improvements, from which Appointments benefit a lot. The most important improvement is performance, which is lot better if you are hosting lots of appointments. All database queries are now cached and will get a lot faster with each new CRUD improvement.
- An updated product gallery with new zoom, gallery view and mobile features
- Multiple speed and performance improvements
- The addition of CRUD classes
- A new CLI powered by the REST API
Add-ons In Admin
Add-on fields have been added to appointments screen in admin, so you can easily track what customers have ordered, even without visiting the order screen itself. Add-ons are also automatically synced to your Google Calendar.
New Translations: ¡Hola!
Full Spanish translation has been added, so the plugin is automatically translated to Spanish, when your WordPress installation is set to es_ES. Besides that, all other translations have been updated and checked for linguistic errors. If you want to contribute your own translation, send it over and award awaits you.
Deep WC Product Vendors integration
Appointments is now fully compatible and deeply integrated with WooCommerce Product Vendors extension. This is really great if you want to offer appointments to your own vendors. Each vendor has a fully separated view into calendar and appointments.
“Cash on Deliver” Payments
This payment method is very hard to utilize in system as WooCommerce, where there is only one order status. We decided to treat this payment method as “paid”, where customers receive appointment reminders and staff is correctly notified for this appointment type.
Appointments that are not paid for and are past due, automatically set customer status to “No-show”. This is important if you want to track customer arrivals and rate of successfully completed appointments.
