How can we improve WooCommerce?

2-way Google Calendar sync

Setting base availability within the extension is a good start, but many of us schedule our time using Google Calendar (for both personal and professional time commitments) so Bookings isn't an option unless it can limit availability based on real-time openings.

For the same reason, it's important that new appointments are also saved to Google Calendar. Thanks to their API and ubiquity, most scheduling and calendar-extension-type apps play with Google Calendar, so it serves as a central clearing house for all things scheduling; it needs to be current.

I'm not going into a lot of detail here, but several folks have provided more information and use cases:

        A lot of people are content with using the WooCommerce search widget. They like the option to either hide or include specific products in search. But what about categories, tags, etc? Sometimes the widget just doesn’t give you the control you need. https://goo.gl/Btj99Z

        Dear friends,
        I want to buy this extension.
        I need it and I think it's also necessary for other people, option such as channel manager.
        We are dealing with a private smile reservation. We have over 30 units and all of our units are posted on various sales channels like booking.com airbnb and others. All of our calendars are synchronized in real time. If a guest book at booking.com, the date is automatically closed on airbnb and other sales channels.
        Whether this option exists in your extension i do not think google calendar synchronization?
        Booking or Airbnb allows you to have a link (exempl LINK : https://hr.airbnb.com/calendar/ical/18310491.ics?s=3f13bbed781e864b9d0a8215037c5907 that is only added to the caleder and performed a bidirectional synchronization date.
        IS this possibel.
        Best regards

        Dear people
        I think that all those who are trying to equip your web page with the hotel apartments and other accommodation to advertise on some of the channels, such as booking.com or airbnb.com.
        Would not it be logical to have a synchronization with one of these channels?
        You know for yourself that the sale takes place in real time and such an option would be very useful to all of us. As you have this option, I immediately buy your upgrade

        Does this allow calendar sync with major booking sites like booking.com and airbnb?

      • Marko Jezernik commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is an absolute must have. Currently we're working on a project that requires us to integrate on a POS system. Booking resources needs to go both ways in order for this to work properly. Especially since you can't use Woo webhooks to output resources booked.

        The only other choice that remains is using Google Calendar which doesn't sync resources both ways.

        I know it not allowed here, but I found out extension which works with WooCommerce Bookings to Sync it to 2 way with Google Calendar.

        Goto Google and search this "WooCommerce Bookings Google Calendar Sync" its plugin available at codecanyon.

        its a must have....
        so much money and this product cannot use this ???? why????

        you have to do this because:
        if you create two bookabl products - books a product on a day (like a fotoshooting) book at the other product a wedding - it does not see that there is a booking in another product for this time

        you have to build it in!!!!

        This is the one thing why I'm doubting to switch to another solution that has this function already available. This functions is a necessity!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this is an absolutely necessary function, and with out this it almost makes this plugin useless

      • Mavericks commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm frankly puzzled, almost incredulous, that this functionality a) has not been included as a baseline feature, so essential is it to so many people and b) appears not to have received any attention in two years. WooCommerce appear to be hiding under the duvet and pretending the 583 requests for it do not exist. Could not someone from Woo at least reply to the thread and say, 'ooh, it might be difficult' or 'nah, we just don't care'?
