My company teaches programming at a beginner and intermediate level. When I saw that I can integrate this plugin with Zoom, I added it straight away as I was looking for this for days. My students also appreciate it Zoom is the most convenient platform. Good job on the Zoom integration, it's super useful and great value for money.

The main thing I'm using this plugin is because all my work was previous placed on Google Calendar. Now with this plugin I can easily sync Google Calendar and save a lot of time when I create or reschedule meetings. Keep up the good work.

I didn't know that it is a trial plugin but after installing it and getting the plugin setup with my skin care agency, I paid for it after the trial ended. It does save me time with my client online booking management, much better than hiring someone to manage bookings.

Very good job on this plugin. Good thing that is a one-click install and the setup is very easy.
12 de junio de 2020
Tbh, if there would not be any free trial I wouldn't pay for this plugin and I would've missed a lot of stuff. Good thing that I tested it with free trial then I paid for the full version.
11 de junio de 2020
One thing that I like with this plugin, is that it is easy to use and you can integrated it easy with you business website. It also does cut off a lot of time from manual planning the meetings and scheduling other work stuff.
