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!
