    Hi there

    We've released Bookly Pro (add-on) v1.1 which includes an ability to set up booking information that is displayed in Google Calendar.

    See a full list of new features here.

    That's a great idea. Our mobile therapists use G Calendar and need to see the customer's address.

    Love this, we also have mobile service providers and would love to allow them to simply check their calendar appointment to know where they're going.

    Indeed Mike, this feature would be life saving for any mobile business. Maybe Bookly would like to tackle the mobile industry with this kind of features.

    Chris,

    Well said! I also run mobile business and do not have brick and mortar businesses location. I keep telling Bookly staff they need to do more to make it friendly for mobile business. Their response is to make posts here under "Feature Requests" but I don't think lots of users visit these and some of the requested I posted nobody voted on them and for Bookly that means its not highly demand feature :(

    I think they should rely on user emails instead.

    Hi Johnny, you are absolutely right. Sorry i responded to Mike earlier instead of you, as you made the last comment but it looked like it was Mike. 

    The disappointing part is that, although this request has a few comments, it only has 2 votes. 

    Hey Bookly staff if you are reading, the mobile industry as a whole is a huge market. A good business potential for you and a life saver for us! 

    Imagine incorporating uber-like features based on google maps, so customers can track in real time how far away is the mobile provider!

    Hello Bookly Support, thank you for your response and for adding more features to Bookly. 

    It would be ideal to insert the client address to G calendar address field. I hope your team can make it happen

    Chris,

    A work around this limitation I had to purchase custom fields plugin https://prnt.sc/lrd430

    Again, I agree 100%. For mobile businesses It would be really nice to be included directly into appointment and it takes you straight to Google Maps when using Google calendar. Here's desktop example  https://prnt.sc/lrd6go

    Hi Johnny, thank you for the screen shots. I have both custom fields and customer information but I haven't used custom fields yet. I use customer information to collect data about customers such as medical history etc... and I have purchased Advanced Google calendar which adds address fields to the online booking process. 

    The limitation is that it doesn't insert the address into google cal address field. As you mentioned, having the address in the address field allows mobile staff to click on the appointment and taken straight to google maps. 

    In your last screen shot with the address, did you manually insert the address or did you find a workaround to inject the address into g calendar address field automatically?
