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

Change working hours of staff for just those special days in a year with the Special Days add-on. The add-on is available for download on our CodeCanyon page and is compatible with Bookly Appointments starting v11.5.

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

Setup

1. Once you’ve purchased and downloaded the add-on, install and enable it in Plugins.

2. In Staff Members > Special Days, 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.

    Does this add-on integrate well with the Bookly Locations add-on? Suppose one staff member's main location is Berlin, where he works daily. He will occasionally visit another site, say Paris, a few days every 4 months.

    Will it be possible to define the special days for a particular location and for a particular staff member?

    Hi Ossi, you'll need to have 2 staff member for this case and you will be able to define the schedule for one of the staff members that will be available for these days in a different location.

    But you did not answer my question:

    Do I need Special Days add-on + Locations Add-on? Or just the Locations, or just the Special Days? If I have both, do they integrate well with each other?

    You will probably need both add-ons for this inquiry.

    Propably? How can I know for sure if should buy the Special Days add-on if even you don't know? Is there money back guarantee?

    Additionally you did not answer to my question:
    Do the Locations and Special Days addons integrate well with each other?

    I'm not sure if this solution will be one that will fit your needs, though you can set it up for this case. You need to have two staff members that will represent the same staff member. For the staff A - you will have the usual schedule and linked to the usual location. When staff member will be available in a different location, than the usual one - you need to set for the staff A - days off and for staff B disable his weekly schedule and add the special days when his available for booking. Besides, that you will need to associate staff B with the new location.

    Yes, these add-ons integrate well with each other.
