Integrated mobile interface and many new features

Bookeo is proud to announce our new release full of useful features to simplify your life. You and your customers are going to love the new site-embedded mobile booking widget, mobile color and design capabilities, more user-friendly participant number selection and many more new features. Take a look.

Mobile booking widget fully embedded into your website

If you have embedded the booking widget on your website, you can now fully integrate it into your mobile website too. Your mobile-using customers can now book and pay without leaving your mobile website.

Yep. Your mobile customers get a more seamless booking experience, and you get happier customers!

If, with your website builder, embedded widgets do not work well on mobile, no worries! You’ve got two other options:

  • Show your main booking page (the first page of the booking process) embedded in your website, then redirect customers to the enlarged full-screen Bookeo booking widget in a new browser tab.
  • Or, stick with the current mobile-user booking widget process which enlarges the widget to full screen.

These options give you maximum flexibility to set your mobile customers’ booking process. Click here to learn more.


Mobile colors, styles and CSS for a more branded booking experience

Want to set the color and style of your mobile device widget to match the color and style of your website? No problem. No matter which mobile widget integration option you choose, you can now easily customize the color of your mobile booking widget. Click here to learn how to make those adjustments.

Participant number pop-up means faster bookings

If you use the booking mode to show upcoming classes/tours/games in your booking page, customers can now select the number of participants after they click the BOOK button.

When customers click the BOOK button, a pop-up window now opens, allowing them to select the number of participants for the booking. This makes the booking process smoother and more intuitive for your customers.

If you wish, you can continue to show the participant number selection at the top of the widget, or you can disable it following the instructions in this tutorial here.


Turn off waiting list notifications for a specic tour or class

You can now turn off waiting list notifications for specific tours or classes. For example, if you want to prioritize a customer who is not currently on the waiting list, you can turn off notifications for that tour or class. You can then add the priority customer without notifications being sent to customers on the waiting list. You can then reenable waiting lists notifications.

In just a couple of clicks, you can now change a gift voucher’s expiration date to extend its validity. Click here to learn more.

Cancel or restore a gift voucher
Now you can cancel a gift voucher without having to delete it. This is possible whether or not the voucher has been used. This feature means you retain a record of the voucher, payment, and donor for future reference. Click here to learn more.

If needed, you can also restore a canceled voucher with a single click, allowing the customer to redeem it.  Click here to learn more.

Offer a specific-amount gift voucher from your dashboard
You and your staff can now generate generic money vouchers for custom amounts right from the dashboard. Simply follow the usual steps to generate a generic voucher and set a custom amount for the voucher.
