Google Calendar Two ways synch

If you have correctly connected Salon Booking System with your Google Calendar account like explained here:

https://salonbookingsystem.helpscoutdocs.com/article/77-google-calendar-synchronization

then you can start using the " Two ways synch" feature.

The Salon administrator can Add and Delete reservations from his Google Calendar, the same one connected to Salon Booking plugin.


How to add a reservation from Google Calendar into Salon Booking System

Here the steps to follow:

  • Select the desired date
  • Type the event title following this format:
user first name and last name, service name 1 + service name 2, user e-mail address ( only for new customers ), customer mobile number (optional), booking note(optional)
  • Click on "Add time"
  • Click on "Save"
  • No wait for the "cronjob" runs and perform the synchronization - scroll this page for more details on cronjob creation.



Synch success, synch error and synch alert

Once the synchronization has been performed you could have three different scenarios:

  • ERROR - the event title has a red circle - the reservation has not been created - look inside the event details and have a look at the error message
  • SUCCESS - the event title has a green circle - you'll find all the reservations details inside the event
  • SUCCESS WITH AN ALERT -  the event title has a orange circle - the reservation has been created but you have a notice inside the event details


Note:
You'll got an error message after the synchronization in the following cases and no reservation will be created:
  • misspelling the customer name
  • misspelling the service name ( refer to the "Services" section of Salon Booking plugin to see how you entered them )
  • entering an existing email address

You'll got an alert message after the synchronization in the following cases but the reservation will be created anyway:

  • Choose a not available date
  • Choose a not available time
  • Choose a not available service


Setup a cronjob

This feature requires a specific cronjob to be executed every X minutes. This is the syntax you need to use to create this cronjob:
*/2 * * * * wget -O - http://salonbookingplugin.it/wp-cron.php?action=sln_sync_from_google_calendar&>/dev/null
