Would be great and very helpful to be able to have 2 or more staff members share a room or piece of equipment so there are no double bookings. Example be able have two staff members use one massage table for multiple services. Once a client books with one of the staff members that time will be unavailable for any services needing that massage table.

    Hi there

    This feature was implemented in Bookly Collaborative Services (Add-on).

    See the description here.

    Read the detailed documentation here.

    Try this demo to see it in action.

    We need this too.

    I think "Capacity at Category-Level" is the better description.

    Many people on codecanyon requested this already in the comment section.

    Would love to have this feature as well.

    Many massage salons have certain treatments that are only available in certain rooms. 

    For example, there could be a) "wet" rooms for treatments that use soap or oil and b) "dry" rooms for treatments that don't such as traditional Thai massage. There could also be couples rooms and chairs for foot massage.

    A common scenario in these cases is that a customer books a treatment that requires a particular room (a "wet" room for instance). That room would need to be unavailable for other treatments that require a "wet" room during the length of the customer's treatment.

    In other words, one would need to be able to manage the availability not only of staff and times but also of treatments and rooms.

    Or to put it another way, one would need to need to be able to associate not only staff with available times but also treatments with available rooms.

    Bookly is the perfect booking plugin expect for the lack of this feature :)

    If a Capacity at Category Level feature was available then I would not hesitate to purchase this plug in and some add ons.

    I've trialled the software and have been very impressed with it and would love to use it on our website but as we only have one studio and multiple members of the staff, we're unable to use it without this feature. As said above, Bookly is the perfect booking plugin except for the lack of this feature.

    We could use resource allocation and booking controls...tied to services sold.

    We have rooms (resources).  Each room has a different amount of seats (number of people that can buy the service) and once a customer makes a purchase we need to assign a room.  If the room is at max capacity, we need to stop selling the service.

    We considered allowing customers to book rooms instead of staff members when buying a service but we our services are so specialized that we need control over staff member selection more.

    Something like this could greatly increase the plugins functionality.

    I brought this plugin from code canyon and i have service job, but only one job can be booked at a time even though there is few staffs available.

    Would really appreciate a control of only allowing one job for a specific period of time.

    We absolutely need this feature as well. We have two staff members that share a room, and only one can be booked at a time - we need an option to show availability that way.

    Add new functionality to manage shared resources. For example, number of beds for treatment are two, only two customers can book at a same time slot if number of staff are over two.

    Add new admin page to manage shared resources.For example, number of beds for treatment are two, only two customers can book at a same time slot if number of staff are over two.A service can have relationships with some shared resources.

    I think it is better solution to make relationship between services and shard resources. Not between staff and shared resources.

    Shared resources should depend on services not staff.

    We also need this useful functionality because we share a limited number of rooms for many professionals.

    Any idea if the development is in progress ?

    Hello - We also desperately require a "Shared Resources" option. We have several staff members that need to share a single computer resource / room.

    We have had to restrict this resource to only one part time staff member so we are missing out on potential bookings.

    I'm running into a similar issue. I have single resource (simulator), and costumer can pick the staff member they want. Ideally, they can pick the duration (1,2, or 3 hours). If a costumer books a lesson (one simulator, and instructor) the plugin allows double booking because another staff is available, but the simulator is not. Costumer needs to pay depending on the duration of the simulator, and the duration of the instructor.

    At the moment the only way to make it work is set a default length, to prevent double bookings.

    Please implement this; we have only one room where treatments can take place. Multiple employees could be available on the same day though, making double bookings possible. Thank you!

    Our institute have 3 rooms for massage and 12 staff members who provide massages to clients...this functionality is very important to us in order to avoid double bookings! 

    we need this!
