New Booking Calendar that simplifies scheduling 📅
More and more businesses use Waitwhile to manage their bookings and appointments. To make this an even better experience, we’ve completely rebuilt our booking calendar from scratch!
The new booking calendar gives you more control and greater flexibility when it comes to viewing, creating & managing bookings. Get a complete overview of important info for each booking, customize the calendar view and streamline the booking flow for your team!
Improved analytics reports for greater business insight 💡
Get more insight into your customers' experience and staff performance with:
- More summary metrics to help you get a quick overview of things
- User analytics report to track the performance of each team member
- Total transaction time measured for greater insight into wait times
Updates at a glance with a tweaked mobile Waitlist UI ✅
The latest improvements to the mobile Waitlist mean that you get a full overview of what's coming up without having to click, scroll or expand an entry.
Customer Registration: Show locations where the selected service is available📍
If you have multiple locations, each with different services, this update makes setting up an appointment or getting in line so much simpler for your customers!
From your Public Locations Page your customers can start by selecting the service they need and then select from a list of your locations that offer this service. No need for them to leave the page to find out where to go, or accidentally sign up at the wrong location.
New API docs and Developer Resources hub 🤖
To help developers build and integrate their existing solutions with the powerful Waitwhile API, we’ve launched a new developer hub at developers.waitwhile.com.
You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with the Waitwhile API as quickly as possible - plus support and a growing community of devs you can ask if you get stuck.
