Gone are those days when making a booking was a tedious process. From phone calls to standing in queues for tickets, waiting hours to see the doctor or other services, WooCommerce Bookings plugin got rid of all these cumbersome tasks and made life easier.
All the services are almost a click away now. But, what if you could manage these bookings at even a faster rate and make your life even easier? The one like Claire does! That’s where Smart Manager comes into the picture.
Smart Manager now integrates with WooCommerce Bookings plugin
The reason behind integrating WooCommerce Bookings plugin and Smart Manager plugin was to remove all the pain associated to users when they deal with bookings in bulk as well as enable users to manage bookings directly without digging through thousands of entries.
For those who entered late, Smart Manager is a WooCommerce store management plugin. It shoots your productivity 10x.

Four reasons why Smart Manager is a must if you use WooCommerce Bookings plugin
1. Bulk manage WooCommerce Bookings…in seconds
The biggest advantage of using Smart Manager and WooCommerce Bookings plugin is you can manage thousands of bookings in seconds. Be it changing prices of bookings, rescheduling appointments or fixing rental price for months, you can edit all in no time with Smart Manager.
Be it 100, 1000 or 10000, it doesn’t matter.
2. Directly edit a booking
Simply edit the booking field directly from the grid without moving to individual items.
3. Search for a specific booking in a flash
No need to dig through thousands of entries. Simply search using a keyword and Smart Manager will fetch desired results.
You can even apply advanced search and make changes to your booking.
Example – You want to cancel all bookings from July 2 – Jul 12 made in the name of Mr. Charles and Ms. Sophie. Simply search using these keywords, select all entries to delete bookings of these persons.
As simple as that. No complexities involved.
4. Export bookings as CSV

Some practical examples how Smart Manager can be useful for your bookings
1. Hotel Bookings
You have a 5-star hotel with 100 rooms including deluxe, semi-deluxe and other variations.
It’s season time the next month and you want to raise the price of all your rooms by 10% before they are booked.
So using Smart Manager, simply select the date range, rooms and ‘select increase price by’ and enter the value.
Assume you are a doctor and the weather department has forecast heavy rain for tomorrow due to which you may reach the clinic late.
Owing to this reason, you want to reschedule all your appointments 20 minutes late.
To do that, simply click on all appointments, select bulk update in Smart Manager and reschedule the entries for the date and time range by 20 minutes and update them. All the entries will be rescheduled.
3. Tickets bookings
To increase sales, this is a great tactic.
The more early flight tickets are booked, the cheaper the cost. As the date of journey approaches, the fares are raised.
You can do the same for all your flight bookings in seconds. Just select the flights and date range to set up prices as per your wish and you are through.
Take another example – If the flights are canceled due to natural calamities, the booking status needs to be cancelled. Simply select all the entries and change their status to Cancelled in Smart Manager.
Your work will be done in a fraction of minutes.
You are a property dealer and provide properties on rent. Some for residential, some for commercial, some for events as well.
Property prices are rising and you want to jump on the bandwagon to earn more money.
You want to increase the prices of your properties for the booking from the next month onwards till three months.
Again, using Smart Manager, set the date range, select the required fields and update your rentals.
Over to you
Believe me, managing your bookings, rentals and appointments in bulk can’t get better than this.
So, if you are using both WooCommerce Bookings plugin and Smart Manager, update to the latest version of Smart Manager to get this integration.
