Staff Cabinet Add-on


All add-ons for Bookly require Bookly PRO installed and activated.

Bookly Staff Cabinet (Add-on) was developed to let your employees manage their bookings without access to the WordPress admin panel.

Once your staff member is logged in, they can enter the Staff Cabinet and manage Bookly calendar and profile on the front end.

Every staff member will be able to manage a calendar, view and update profile details, manage services, prices, schedule, days off, and special days, as well as export their calendar information into a CSV file.
