Book Now Box widget is no longer rough around the edges

The renewed Book Now Box external widget is the shiny new version of the good ol’ Book Now Box. We’ve given it a fresh look and added some exciting features into the mix. Here’s the lowdown:

  1. Auto-update: In the past, whenever there was a bug fix, users had to trudge back to the website builder, and copy and paste the widget code all over again to get that fix. Well, with the “auto-update” toggle enabled, users won’t need to touch that widget code ever again for bug fixes.
  2. Styles: We’ve spiced things up on the style front. Now, users can choose from various button styles, whether they prefer a sharp, rounded, or pill-shaped look.
  3. Colors: No more being limited to just button color choices. Now, users can flex their creative muscles by customizing both the text and button colors to match their website’s aesthetic.
  4. Calendar makeover: And we’ve saved the best for last – a brand-new calendar UI for this widget! This is just the tip of the iceberg, as we’re gearing up to revamp more calendars across the website and checkout flows.
