Access to WP Dashboard for Staff

WordPress accounts tied to your site will give staff access to the company's dashboard (stripped-down version of).



1. Create WordPress accounts for staff in WordPress dashboard (general section, not Bookly) > Users.

2. Choose role (level of access) for each new account:

  • Subscriber - doesn't see actual data values in any of the dashboard sections;
  • Contributor, Author, or Editor - can only view and edit appointments in calendar and list that belong to the staff member associated with that WordPress user. Can also edit their own personal info as a staff member;
  • Admin - full access.

3. In the Bookly menu > Staff Members > [a staff member], pick the WordPress user from the "User" drop-down menu.

Notifications - let staff know about incoming appointments and let them approve/cancel them right from the email.

Google Calendar sync - automatically add new appointments to Google Calendar; keep busy periods from being booked as appointments.

    What is the best way to give staff acess to their calendars? Do they log onto the wordpress admin with their user account?

    Hi Kim, I advise that the associated WordPress user accounts should have the "editor" role. They can log in in the back-end to see their calendar and profile.

    Hi, we have a company that provides cleaning services and we would like to know if team managers can access an admin account - to manage the schedules / services of the various teams - viewing only the Bookly plugin when they access WP Dasboard, and not the rest of the administrator panel. Thanks

    Hi Sergio, currently, only Admin users have full access to Bookly. If you want to give full access to Bookly, though not to the whole dashboard you’ll need some third-party plugins. You can check this one:
