Extra Long / Short Days (Special Days Add-on)


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

Change working hours of staff for just those special days in a year with the Special Days (Add-on).

Set a custom schedule, including breaks – different from default working hours for individual staff members.


1. Once you've purchased and downloaded the Special Days (Add-on), install and activate it in Plugins.

2. In the Staff Members section, select a staff, click Edit, and switch to the Special Days tab. Set the working hours and breaks for each day that's different from the staff member's default working schedule.

Special day settings will override regular schedule and even days off created for each staff member.
