We looked everywhere for an appointment booking module for our clinic. There were a number of options on the internet, but none had the critical piece that we needed, synchronisation with our caledars for free / busy times.

This component may not be for everyone as it was designed with a specific goal in mind; to better manage online bookings in our massage and wellness clinic. If you're unsure whether this is for you download the source, install and test or email me.

Functionality

Does exactly what is needed, even as the free version

Ease of use

Very simply to configure and use, but even with the simplicity, the actual functionality is great, especially around allocating appointments

Support

Had a small (user, not extension) issue. I got a response within minutes, on a Sunday.

Documentation

Comprehensive

I used this to: A Chiropractors practice.

Functionality

Easy to use and configure - does everything I need it to and the paid version does everything I want it to

Ease of use

Fantastic

Support

Cant say enough great things about Erc - fast, courteous and acurate

Documentation

Understandable

I used this to: Running the booking system for the site

Functionality

All the things I need and want are working perfect.

It's really easy to use.

Support

The support was excellent. I've had a view issues to run the google calendar synch. - but the support helped me through and solved it.

Documentation

It's really easy to use - so I didn't look often to the documentation.

I used this to: I use this for my ceramic studio. It is the best solution for my business. Makes everything much easier for me.

Functionality

This product did everything I wanted it to do! Love it!

Ease of use

Easy to use. I had a couple of problems modifying specifics to suit my needs, but the support was great and I go through it okay :)

Support

The support was fantastic though! VERY quick responses. VERY helpful. Can't stress this enough. Especially since I'm using the free version.

Documentation

Found the documentation helpful for the basic setup.

I used this to: A room booking system at my institution. Mainly for taking ad hoc bookings. It's just to make my life easier (otherwise people email me constantly looking for available times). The support has been phenomenal. I'm going to subscribe based solely on the support given.

Functionality

Does exactly what we needed for a multi-person sports injury clinic. There could be some minor improvements, but overall excellent.

Ease of use

You can pretty much have a complete booking system up and running within just a few minutes and very easy to adjust styling to suit own site

Support

Fantastic, extremely fast and helpful!

Documentation

Set-up docs are complete and easy to follow, the knowledgebase is a little light but the support is so quick it doesn't matter!

I used this to: Running a multi-person sports injury clinic. Tried the free version and almost immediately upgraded to the paid version which is well worth the price. Previously have paid more for less user-friendly and less functional products.

Great Extension

Functionality

Perfect.

Ease of use

Very easy to configure all of the menu items and calendar items, except one - the e-mail for confirmation of the online reservation.

Support

The support web site is a little confusing. It is hard to find the solution of your problem.

Documentation
I used this to: The only thing I can't configure is the e-mail address of the calendars. I want to set the same e-mail for all of my bookings, but when I set the same e-mail in the calendar settings - nothing happens. Please help???

Functionality

From the gecko it works like it should. The functions are easy to understand and within a couple of minutes you got it working.

Ease of use

As already said it is really easy to use. It has some limitations but that can be expected.

Support

Tried to create a support ticket received 3 errors and gave up. I don't have an account but it is possible to create a ticket without one.

Documentation

The documentation is there but also not there. It is a bit confusing where to find and how to work the documentation.

I used this to: At the moment as a car booking program but it can be used for many other items. Too bad that the user contributed translations can not be downloaded because of an error. Hopefully they fix this soon.

Functionality

Works like it should, great tool!

Ease of use

Verys easy to use.

Support

Fast and very friendly support. (Thanks Eric!)

I used this to: Service

Functionality

Works out of the box, very easy to set up and configure, built for therapy appointments but perfect for anything requiring appointments

Ease of use

Example pre-configuration after basic install, it's easy to understand the settings combining this with the Documentation.

Support

Support is prompt and thorough.

Documentation

Clear Documentation is easy to understand, combined with the notes/hints in the admin back end.

I used this to: I was building an online booking system for a clinic.
I ended up upgrading for the subscriber version which is well worth it's price adding functionality such as calendar sync and paypal if you need it. Even without this, it is perfect!

Functionality

Does exactly what it says it will do. Provided exactly what was need for a my project which was time based appointments.

Ease of use

Setup was easy I just read the documentation. Easiest booking component for the end user (customer making appointment) that I found

Support

Support is awesome. I had a few issues to work out and Eric helped me each time. The support alone is worth the price of the paid version

Documentation

PDF documentation was complete and easy to follow.

I used this to: Used by a company to schedule mediation appointments which are time based.
The online calendar and booking are very easy to use for the end customer.
Plus it looks and works great on a smartphone
