Staff Cabinet Add-on

This add-on was developed to let your staff members manage their bookings without access to WordPress admin panel.

Once your staff member is logged in, he or she will be able to enter the Staff Cabinet and see the Bookly calendar and profile on the front-end. Every staff member will have the possibility to manage their own calendar, view and update details, manage services, prices, schedule, days off and special days.

 

Setup

1. Purchase, download, setup and enable add-on in Plugins.

2. Enter the purchase code on Bookly Settings page.

3. In the page editor, you will see Add Staff Cabinet button. When you press this button, the shortcode will be generated and inserted into the editor.

4. In the drop-down list, you will see the list of possible options for adding. Select the properties you want to be displayed and set limitations if needed.

5. Once the add-on is set up, your staff members will be able to view and manage their calendars right after authentication on the front-end.

 

Setting limitations

After the Staff Cabinet add-on is installed, the website administrator can set visibility limitations for team members while editing a page. This way, the staff members will be able to view, work with and update only those profile elements which they have permission and access to.

    I recently bought add on Staff Cabinet. I´m the first one…..

    Unfortunately, I can´t register new clients from the new form as the green button does not do nothing.

    Is it right?

    Hi again,

    Hi!

    I just managed to fix an issue I had with Staff Cabinet and now it´s working fine. I asked for refund yesterday and it was approved, taking 3-5 working days to complete it. CAN YOU STOP THE REFUND PROCESS?

    There's no way to stop the refund procedure. Though you can wait till the refund is processed then repurchase the add-on.

    Hi - I just in stalled the Cabinet plugin and added the calendar short-code to a page, but when I view the page, it says I don't have permissions to view. I'm the Super Admin.

    Hi Dan, you need to access that page with a WP user account that's linked to a staff member and is associated with the editor's role.

    What page are we supposed to add the calendar short code to? Similar to Dan, I added mine to my Book Now page right below the bookly plugin code, and it says I do not have permission to view. I am confused, I am the one who built this website so how do I not have permission. You answered Dan that he needed a WP user account that is linked to a staff member and is associated with the editor's role. How do you associate a staff member with the editor’s role? Please help just started a new business and I need my staff members to be able to adjust their schedules.

    Hi Zach, you can link WP user accounts with staff members - in the staff members menu. If you want to check the role of the linked WP account, you can do it the users menu.

    So I was able to figure out how to create new users.... how to designate their role as an editor.... then you go into that staff members user and change it to that user that has the ability to edit. Currently, I have a Book Now page with the short code: [bookly-form hide="categories,date,week_days,time_range"]. With the Page Editor open, I click the add Staff cabinet, staff calendar, which pastes [bookly-staff-calendar] into the page above the bookly plugin short code. When I try to view the site, it says I do not have permission to view. How can my staff login with their username to adjust their calendars?

    I just received the email that....New user registration on your site :
    Xxxxxxxx

    So I made this user (Xxxxxxx) and I have the password. Now were does this user login so they can access only their calender and profiles.

    In case you added at least one shortcode of the staff cabinet add-on and you are visiting the website while being logged off you should see a login form where the staff member can log into his account.

    Is the editor role the proper role for that username to login and edit their calender and schedule? Then how do I limit it so that staff member/username can only access and change their own schedule and cannot access anything else.

    thanks

    The editor role is the proper role, they will have access only to their appointments and profile, regarding WordPress rights everything else remains unchanged what options are available for this role.

    What do you mean regarding wordpress, will they have access to any other aspects of the wrodpress site, or will they just have access to their calender and schedule?

    the bookly code on my book now page has the short code: [bookly-form hide="categories,date,week_days,time_range"]. With the Page Editor open, I click the add Staff cabinet, staff calendar, which pastes [bookly-staff-calendar] so with
    so my book now page looks like
    [bookly-form hide="categories,date,week_days,time_range"]
    [bookly-staff-calendar]

    Should eveyrthing work?

    1) Regarding WordPress roles please check this link for more details: https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities . They will have access to the calendar, schedule and also other aspects of the WP website.

    2) Yes, everything should work.

    I was able to make it so the user can only access Bookly. The only issue remaining is that it when the satff member logs in, they are only able to see what has been booked if they go to the dashboard. On the dashboard, they can click Bookly, and the available options for my staff to edit are Calender and Profile. Thsi current issue is that it is allowing my Staff to edit, their profile, services, and days off, but it would let the staff see their weekly schedule or special hours to edit that.

    Everything is almost set up, thank you so much with these final parts, Zach

    You can disable the possibility to make changes to their profile in settings -> allow staff members to edit their profiles -> by disabling this setting.

    Where is this setting, Denis you have been such a help. I have been working with envato market/codecanyon as well trying to get help.

    Everything is working (calendar, profiile details, service, special hours, and days off), but for some reason when my staff click to edit their scheudles... all they get is a loading screen. Please help. I have had this add-on for almost 2 days now and there is no reason why is should not be running properly. After I updated, the only new thing the staff could access was the special days tab, so now they can access everything I need them to exceppt the Schedule tab.

    It is so close to working, why wont the schedule tab work?

    Is there a phone I could call you on and just get through this probelm quickly? Where is this settings tab you explained above?

    I am so close, once my staff can access their schedules, everything will be perfect.

    thanks, zach

    Before I purchase - I got a question.

    Can staff member book out a specific slot on their calendar?
    E.g. staff member wants to take two hours off an a specific Tuesday but not all Tuesdays.
    So usually admin would book the two specific hours off on the backend.

    Can a staff member do this with this new plugin?

    Thanks

    H Trevor, yes he can create some appointments to block some time slots when he's not available for booking.
