If you're a long time user of YouCanBook.me's Free account, you may have spotted a change to your booking page.
Our latest theme was developed to improve performance and be more accessible. It has the added bonus of looking fabulous on a phone!
Customers who use it are delighted with the performance - we've seen a 20% increase in bookings on the new experience compared to the old themes.
We want to make sure everyone benefits from those results, so we've moved all Free Account booking pages across to the new theme. You can find out more about why it's different here.
Have you ever worried about forgetting to update a field when you create a new booking page? We’ve added smart booking page creation options that help get team booking pages set up faster.
When you create a new booking page, you’ll be asked to choose who the booking page is for.
When it’s created, all the fields - including the linked calendar and the ‘from’ email addresses - will automatically update to be for that person. Select for a team, and we’ll add in shorthand codes so each team member is reflected correctly whenever they are booked.
We've improved how we communicate with you via email about what's happening on your account.
If there are any warnings on your account, we'll bundle the information together and send it in one email.
This means we can keep you more up-to-date about your account, without ever spamming your inbox!
From July 1st, all emails used to send booking notifications must be verified. This security measure will prevent anyone from sending notifications from email addresses they don't own.
For accounts created before November 18th, 2020, they'll see prompts to verify their emails right now. This means there's the opportunity to verify before the switch on July 1st.
You may also notice a prompt to switch to the new booking experience if not all your booking pages are using it already.
Over the next few months, we'll be switching all accounts over to this new experience.
