The existing 10 year old GoBook website has been re-written to make it more mobile-responsive, i.e. page layout adapts to size of screen. The beta version is currently available at http://new.gobook.co.za - it will replace the existing website in the first half of 2019.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The GoBook mobile app is now available for Android and iOS devices. Click on the relevant badge on the Log In page for more info and to optionally install the app. If you are already registered on the GoBook website, it is not necessary to re-register on the app - just use your same User Name and Password to log into the app.
Since this is the first release of the app, any feedback would be greatly appreciated - email me at email@example.com
The Make Booking page has been enhanced by the addition of "previous day" and "next day" buttons which facilitate the viewing of the previous and next day's booking schedules, respectively, without having to change the date and then click on the "search" button as before.
The My Bookings page has been enhanced by the addition of an "export to calendar" button which will download your GoBook bookings in a calendar format file (.ics format). The downloaded file can then be imported into most calendaring applications (e.g. Outlook and Google Calendar) so that your GoBook bookings will appear as appointments within your calendar.
Previously providers had the option to allow or disallow booking reminders - this affected both SMS and email reminders. The setting has now been changed to be applicable to reminders sent via SMS only. As a result, if you have selected to receive booking reminders via email, you will always receive such. If you have selected to receive booking reminders via SMS, these will only be sent to you if the relevant provider has allowed such.
GoBook now has an account on Twitter, namely @gobookza. We will initially be tweeting just service announcements, such as online availability of providers, on a regular basis. To follow GoBook on Twitter, just click on the link on the Log In page.
