  1. WP Booking Calendar CRM integration

    We really need CRM integration in some way. If WP Booking Calendar is an integral part of our business, then as a Business owner I need each form submission to create a Lead in my CRM system. This can be done via Zapier or IFTTT.

    Either WP Booking Calendar can send a Lead to the CRM or WP Booking Calendar can integrate with “Gravity Forms” plugin which can integrate with many CRM systems and Zapier.

    Where WP Booking Calendar captures very valuable information like the potention revenue of the lead, this information can be used to qualify and rank the lead based on the amount of potential revenue generated. The amount of Marketing Automation that can be achieved with WP Booking calendar is vast.

    WP Booking Calendar can go a step further with Automated follow-up. Instead of just doing an Auto-Cancel, add an option to send a follow-up email before the Auto-Cancel. This give use the opportunity to politely and automatically follow-up with the pending request before cancel.

    Also, please give us an integration for a Mailing list such as Aweber, Mailchimp, constant contact, etc. This way we can add a checkbox to add the lead to a list upon completing the booking request. Additionally, if WP Booking Calendar integrates GeoLocation then we can geo-segment the email list to target specific locations, to grow our businesses.

    Thanks

    • Hello.
      thank you about all your suggestions.
      We will add these items to the todo list for implementation in a future updates.
      Kind Regards.

  2. WP Calendar Better Analytics

    Please make it easier to integrate web analytics into the WP Calendar system. We put WP Calendar at the center of our business because taking reservations it the 2nd medium for capturing qualified leads behind phone calls.
    Using the shortcodes makes it difficult to add events to the forms (if using Google Analytics).

    I would expect and have been anticipating WP Booking Calendar to have a very robust Analytics or tracking system. This helps the users of the plugin to grow business and understand the booking patterns.

    Features already included in WordPress JetPack or Google Analytics would not need to be created but probably integrated.
    Metrics:
    -Form Abandonment
    -Number of Abandoned forms
    -% of Abandonded forms
    Form Completion
    -Number of Form Completions (successful submission)
    -% of form completed
    Number of form errors
    -Form Field error rates
    Most used form submission page
    Most used form (List by form name)
    Text field trend (Most used text* city, text* state, text* First Name, text* Last Name, etc)

    We really need this process of adding analytics and tracking to either be easier or for you to provide instructions for users of your plugin to integrate these features ourselves. Just give us a way to do it or create a blog post of the places we can integrate with the Shortcodes and add additional shortcodes.
