We ran thousands of tests and the new version of DaySchedule can complete a booking request in average 250ms on mobile devices (No QR code), and average 750ms on desktop device when QR code is enabled) - so it takes less than 1 second now for -

  1. Checking availability in your calendar
  2. Creating video conferencing link
  3. Sending email to both invitee and host
  4. Creating QR code for desktop users to scan
  5. Scheduling and running attached workflows

Persistent booking view

As requested on our public roadmap, the booking view filters has been added persistent storage to remember the filter you’ve selected and won’t change on page refresh or even logout.

For example, if you’ve checked on Confirmed status to see the confirmed appointment only. The selected filter will be stored on the browser session and will be remembered forever on the same device.

So, the DaySchedule app will now remember all the filters you’ve selected and open in the same view. The persistent applies to -

  1. Employee selection
  2. Appointment status selection
  3. Date range selection
  4. Event selection

Razorpay connection

The Razorpay payment connection has been upgraded to latest Razorpay API, if you are using Razorpay payment gateway in your scheduling pages and getting token revoked error > you must reconnect with Razorpay to authorize DaySchedule again.

Integrations migration

The integration feature has been merged with workflow to better run the selected integration on different event triggers.

For example, sending a webhook request before 5 minute of an event.

If you were using any integration with your event, it should be re-created using workflow.

Feedback email

The feedback feature has been removed from the event page in favor of customized template email using workflow to trigger after event end.

This will allow you to send custom template based email or personalized feedback messages to your customers asking for their rating and feedback.
