If your Jimdo Creator website offers services, events or courses that require booking an appointment, our new Jimdo Booking app for Android is perfect for you. You can now create a booking calendar via your smartphone that is displayed to visitors on your website. Customers can easily book your services and you can keep track of any changes or manage your events on-the-go.
How it works
The Jimdo Booking App (available for Android 5 and above) is free and compatible with all Jimdo Creator sites. Just download the app from the Google Play Store and log in to the app using your existing Jimdo account.
If you’re new to the Jimdo user account, now is the perfect opportunity to activate it with a few clicks. The Booking app can only be used with a Jimdo user account.
All appointments and events that you create and that your visitors can book are in the “Services” section. To create a new event, simply click on the plus icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the Home screen.
Here you can add details about your event and adjust the time, location, regularity (e.g. weekly classes) or the number of participants. You also choose where on your website you want the calendar to appear.
Visitors book directly on your website
Once you set up your calendar, visitors can book your services directly on your Jimdo website. As soon as someone books one of your offers, you will receive a push notification directly in the app so you’re always up to date with how many people have made a booking.
Jimdo Booking is the latest addition to our family of apps—all designed to make your website even more powerful. Read more about how we’re developing these apps and let us know what you’d like to see!
