Tyche Softwares released a major update of their Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce. Version 5.0 introduced the brand new Available Bookings Block, their first block for the Gutenberg editor.
Available Bookings Block
As it says on the tin, the Available Bookings Block allows you to easily list bookable products along with their availability on your WordPress site. The block can be configured either in List View or Calendar View.
The are two different setting sections:
- Filter Settings
That’ s pretty self-explanatory, isn’t it? Basically, you can specify filterable bookable products.
- Display Settings
You can change the view and enable or disable various elements such as time, quantity, and navigation. However, you can also enable the Grey Out Booked Date option which allows you to display sold out time-slots alongside available booking dates and times.
If you are still using the Classic Editor you’ll get the same functionality of by using the
[tyche-bookings] shortcode which can be combined with a whole range of attributes. By the way, they also added a Search Widget shortcode.
In other news, Dokan marketplace vendors are now able to set holidays globally using a calendar at Dokan Dashboard > Booking > Calendar View > Availability.
