We are in the process of releasing a new version of the Booking Calendar. You may see a slightly different version.

Easily change the calendar view

You can change how you view your Booking Calendar to suit your needs. Check the schedule for an entire week or a specific date, including all free time slots. You can also see the complete list of sessions for a single day or view upcoming bookings for each staff member.
Choose from the following views:
  • Week: View your entire schedule for the selected week, including all sessions and free time slots.
  • Day: Check the schedule for the selected date, including all free time slots.
  • Schedule: View a list of sessions on the selected date, including the time, type, number of participants, staff member in charge and the location. 
  • Staff: Check the upcoming sessions for the selected date, with sessions sorted into columns based on the staff member in charge.

Create filters and use color codes

Fine-tune what you see in your calendar by adding filters to it. You can filter by service, staff, location, session availability, and more. You can also color code your calendar to suit your needs. Learn more about filtering the Wix Bookings Calendar.
Click the More Actions drop-down to choose if you want to color code your sessions by service type or by staff member. This makes it easier to check availability or manage any last-minute schedule changes.

You can then select a color for each one so that you can easily identify sessions on your calendar.
Sessions with no participants booked or bookings which are not yet approved are not shaded in with color. 

Manage your complete schedule

Use your calendar to add new appointments, class sessions, and course sessions. You can also block off time you don't want clients to be able to book online.

Update your clients' attendance and payments

Manage the attendance and payment status for all clients that have made bookings. Select the relevant appointment, class or course in your calendar to view its participants list. 
Marking attendance is useful for keeping track of payments and seeing which of your services are most popular. You can check your site's statistics in the Reports tab.

Manage your clients' information

From the sessions or appointments in your calendar, you can access all your clients' contact cards to edit their details, book sessions for them, send messages and more. 
Through a client's contact card, you can chat directly with them and book sessions or offer coupons. You can also add notes for yourself about your client and their progress, set up tasks, add an attachment (such as a medical permission form) and much more.

Analyze your booking activity

The Analytics panel on the right-hand side of the Booking Calendar gives you a quick overview of all bookings activity on your site in the last 30 days. This is a great way of using data to inform your decisions each month, including adding new time slots for your most popular services.
We are in the process of releasing the Booking Activity Panel so it is not yet available to everyone.
