Recurring Bookings, with Reschedule feature
I'm currently using Birchpress for my bookings with WooCommerce. I've only stayed with them because they have promised a recurring booking feature. However, they don't seem like they are going to develop this feature anytime soon, so if you would develop this recurring function, I'd be more than happy to switch over.
I run a school, where we do private tutoring. Clients sign up for a time slot and they have their class the same day and same time every week. It is impossible for us to manually enter every client, every week. We very much need to have a recurring booking, where we can add a client indefinitely and assign them to a staff member, as well as a room.
In addition, it would be great to see 1. A rescheduling function, where clients or staff can reschedule an appointment one time, or for all future events, just like google calendar does. It would also be nice to see a limit on the number or reschedulings a client is allowed to make 2. Integration with subscriptions - since our clients pay a monthly fee, they should be charged like a subscription to have access to the reschedule and scheduling features.
Not a single word from Automattic in 6 years and 550 votes.. Votes are just from people who know about wooideas and take the time to come here: many more are frustrated by these missing features.. Come on WC, at least say something!

That would be an interesting feature if you can add it. https://3cre.com/commercial-real-estate-cincinnati-ohio/

In my use case, I would need recurring bookings to tie into the Subscriptions plugin for a recurring booking that does not expire until manually cancelled; just as with repeating appointments in an electronic calendar.
As it stands, this is an obvious addition to the plugin that would enhance its value greatly. 543 votes and 6 years, it's got to be time!
I'm looking forward to Ben Robert's plugin version 2 (bouncingsprout recurring bookings), which I hope can do this for WooCommerce Bookings. Otherwise I will have to revert to Tyche software's booking plugin.

There is this plugin https://www.tychesoftwares.com/store/premium-plugins/woocommerce-booking-plugin/ which works completely fine for me. Recurring booking addon works great with WooCommerce Subscription plugin to give me recurring bookings each month.

This feature would really make a lot of difference for my business. Please consider this for 2021 planning. Thanks

SIX F YEARS this has been ignored?
Not to mention, this idea which is also top ten, is kind of the same anyway: https://ideas.woocommerce.com/forums/133476-woocommerce/suggestions/5963757-block-bookings-on-woocommerce-bookings
so all together this is by far the most demanded functionality :)
Why is this getting ignored?
This needs to happen, but it's obvious despite a tremendous number of votes that the team has decided the customer base is going to be ignored. Come on guys, make this happen.

An absolute must have feature out of the box. Very surprised its not coded in there already. This is a must have feature for me. I am using woocommerce bookings but had to purchase another plugin as an add-on not to happy about that. Any way please get the Recurring Bookings, with Reschedule feature in there woowhoo!!!!

It would be great if we could select a number of dates per booking. For instance a course that runs on a Friday for 5 weeks, or can be 5 days in a row.
This is a must have feature for me. you have my vote. I currently have woocommerce bookings but had to purchase another plugin as an add-on

YUP for this!

We need this functionality as well, including integration with Subscriptions for billing.
We have a horse farm where people should be able to sign up for weekly lessons at a recurring day and time each week, but then be billed monthly on the 15th of each month.
Right now it seems a partial workaround will be to make a subscriptions product to setup the monthly billing that then gives you access and a coupon code to "purchase" the Booking Product for no additional cost... but this still doesn't solve the need to make that bookable product recurring without expiration, until the subscription product is cancelled.

I just bought the extension and miss this feature with the subscription model. I need it for my therapy sessions and for students for additional private coaching.

I have just released a free plugin that allows a user to create manual recurring bookings from the back-end, removing the need to enter every booking, for every week. Lots more features planned, once I have determined what people need most from it. Would love some feedback from anyone who has given it a try - https://wordpress.org/plugins/recurring-bookings-for-woocommerce/
I have the exact same issue as Jason S,it's four years since his post as WooCommerce don't appear interested (Birchpress also have not immediate plans either) could anyone suggest the best alternative ?
When will the feature of allowing users to update their own bookings come into play?
