FEATURE RELEASE: Printable Booking Details, Repeatable Notes on PlaceFull Calendar, List-View Description

Our latest feature release is here. We are excited to help you get all you can out of PlaceFull – check out the NEW and awesome additions we have in store for you below!

Printable Booking Details – Make Staff More Efficient 

The NEW printable booking details feature gives merchants the ability to have all the important information of their next booking in their hands. Basic information like; date of the booking, name of the person who booked, and how many people are scheduled to be at the booking are all in your grasp, not your computer screen.

Does your business ask extra questions to further enhance the experience of a party or event at the time of booking? If that is the case, all responses to questions and special requests, are printable. Or does your business offer add-ons to your listings? Add-ons and the amount ordered during the booking process are printable with this NEW feature, as well. With information easily accessible, merchants will be able to cater to the needs of individuals easier.

Repeatable Notes on the Calendar – Save You Time

The NEW repeating notes are here to save you time. Merchants can now add notes to the same days every week. Adding a start date and an end date will allow you to extend those notes for as long as you like.

Merchants can offer buy one get one half off deals every Tuesday and Thursday with no hassle to remember to extend that on your calendar. Special events or deals that happen every week will be easier to add, edit, and delete. Set it and forget it.

List-View Description – Enhance Your Customer Search Process

This NEW list-view description feature allows potential customers to read about your available classes or event before ever clicking on the listing. Merchants can give a small detail, or a tag line to hook customers looking at their listings. This feature offers an opportunity to catch the eye of everyone looking at your booking list!

FEATURE RELEASE: Listing Categories, 1 Page Checkout, Auto-Unpublish Listings, and Dashboard Update

The last feature release of 2016 is finally upon us. We are excited to help you get ready for the new year – check out all of the NEW and awesome additions we have in store for you below!

Listing Categories

The NEW Listing Categories feature takes listing customization to the next level – giving merchants the ability to pick and choose what events they want displayed on their calendar and list view. Instead of displaying all events on one calendar or list view, you can now create multiple calendars or lists to add to their website and Facebook.

Does your business offer a variety of party packages? If that is the case, you can now create a list view of all your parties that you have to offer! Or maybe your business offers both kid and adult events? Now you can easily create two separate list views to display all of your categorized events in an organized way for you customer’s viewing.

Auto-unpublish Listings

The NEW Auto-unpublish feature is a sure way to declutter your List View of events. Keep your past and present listings organized and save yourself time weeding through expired listings. With the simple click of a button, turn on the auto-unpublish feature to automatically unpublish listings from your List View when they expire.

1 Page Checkout

We love giving our merchants options! Choose how you want your customers to experience the checkout process. Do you prefer PlaceFull’s traditional checkout made up of a few quick and easy steps? Or would you prefer a one page checkout that displays all steps? The choice is yours!

Dashboard Update

Last but not least – our new and improved dashboard options! The NEW Manage drop-down tab was created to make it easy for you to quickly access the pages you frequent the most. Under the new tab you can find pages such as: Listings, Categories, Booking Questions, and Listing Settings. Click around and check out just how convenient the new layout is!

Any questions about the new features? Feel free to give us a call at (206)624-0295 with any comments or concerns, we’d love to help you out as always!
