You can now host virtual meetings using Google Meet!
With Google Meet chosen as the event location, we'll automatically create a unique link for you and your customer to meet virtually.
All you need is to be creating events on a Google calendar and have Google Meet chosen as the event location.
You can also create unique links for team member bookings if all team members use a Google calendar.
One change this month is to participants' status on calendar event invitations. Bookers were being listed as "optional" on calendar event invitations which occasionally caused confusion. We've now updated this so bookers don't show as "optional".
We also upgraded our protection against bots by rolling out the latest version of Google captcha. This means you can be confident that new bookings or changes to existing ones are made by real people!
The Editor role is now ready for you to use!
After someone's joined a YouCanBook.me Team, they can be assigned the Editor Role and given access to select booking pages. This means you can have your whole organization on one account and have full control over who can access what.
Another important change was the release of two factor authentication, meaning you can add an extra layer of protection to your account. Once set up, you'll log in normally and then be prompted for a security code generated by your authentication app.
Find out how to enable two factor authentication.
All our emails now use unified styles. Their updated styling means they're more legible, look great, and all communication from us to you, or you to your bookers look consistent across the board.
Some account warnings had a missing icon for a short time but we swiftly managed to get it back to showing the correct icon.
First off, we want to share that our latest accessibility improvements mean our booking pages are now WCAG 2.0 AA compliant!
It means that our booking pages are accessible to a wider range of people. To read about our commitment to accessibility, and what assistive technologies and browsers we support, you can visit our Accessibility Statement.
We've added the option for you to generate your own API key from your account settings. Customers previously had to access their key via our Support team so we know that, for those using our API, this will save time.
Head over to our API Knowledge Base article to find out more about accessing and using our API.
