Therapist Booking System Update

We are pleased to announce version 1.2 of our new therapist booking system. Based on feedback from our users so far, we have collected new features which you would like to see and these are being rolled out today – 29th June 2021.

Recurring Appointments

When booking from the backend of the booking system, you as the therapist can now set an appointment to reoccur every one, two, three or 4 weeks. You can also set a limit of how many times to repeat the appointment. This is a handy tool for pre-booking regular clients.

Free Appointments

Free appointments are now easy to configure on the services page. If you offer a free 15 minute intro call which is bookable online, all you need to do is tick the “Free Service” option on the service config page. The client will go directly to the confirmation and skip the payment section.

Pending Bookings

You can now configure that all bookings via your website (i.e by the clients directly) go to a pending state. You can further configure this to apply to new clients only whereas existing clients go straight to a confirmed booking. This is an optional setting.

Restricted Bookings

We now have the ability to restrict bookings via your website frontend to existing clients only. New clients will need to reach you by phone to book. This is an optional setting configured during setup. NB: Keep in mind this will affect new clients looking to book intro calls and any other introductory services you might offer.

Additional Currency Support

During the setup process you can now configure the currency you would like to offer your services in. While the majority of WebHealer’s clients are UK based, we do have customers around the world and want to open our new therapist booking service for them too.

Thank you to all clients who have provided feedback. We are already beginning work on v1.3 which will include the ability to setup and configure events (great for retreats, talks, webinars etc) and to sell tickets for these too. Our booking system will remain free for our clients and we commit to rolling out new functionality in the coming weeks and months. Please contact us if there is a specific function you would like to see!

Future releases to include:

  • A Mobile App
  • Paypal Payments
  • Accounts Packages Integration (Xero/Freshbooks/Quickbooks etc)
  • SMS Reminders
  • Improved Calendar Sync
  • Improved interface and therapist experience in the backend.
