Group Booking Add-on

This add-on allows you accept group bookings for the same service at the same time. Let customers specify the amount of persons they’d like to book for when they choose a service at the first step of the booking process.

Get the Group Booking Add-on here.

The group booking will be displayed in Bookly Calendar as one appointment and include the details of all signed-up customers.

Setup and configuration

1. Purchase, download and activate add-on in Plugins.

2. Go to Bookly menu > Settings > Group booking and enable group bookings.

3. Go to Services and set a Capacity value for each service to determine the min and the max number of customers that each service can accommodate.

4. You can also determine employee’s individual Capacity settings, different from the default values set in Services. Go to Staff members tab and click Services.

5. You can show or hide the Number of persons field when placing a booking form on your website. If hidden, all appointments will be booked for one person per booking.

6. If you want to display information about time slot occupancy in a booking form, navigate to Appearance > Time tab, and check the box next to Show information about group bookings. Format for displaying should be set up in Settings > Group Booking.

Note: if you have both Group booking add-on and Waiting List add-on installed and activated, make sure you’ve enabled group booking in Settings. Otherwise, capacity value won’t be taken into account and clients will be put on the waiting list after the first booking is made.

Important: At this time, Bookly Group Booking add-on is not compatible with Bookly Recurring Appointments add-on.

    Is there the ability to add participant details of the group? If the owner needs to know say, name and email addresses of participants booked in that group and sends each participant of the group an email confirmation, How is that achieved?

    Remember not all services are as basic as a yoga class.

    Hi, it is possible to create a different price base on no. of persons book? For example, if customer choose 1 person, the price will be USD10 but when they choose 2 persons, the price become USD15.

    Hi Wan, currently, this type of pricing is not supported, the service price will be multiplied with the number of persons.
