May 2022 update

Dear booker,

Hurray! Festival season is approaching, and it’s promising to be busy as ever. As usual, we’ve been adding small changes, to try to reduce your workload. Prefilling the exclusivity component for example, together with other small improvements.

We have added a larger improvement, a different way of looking at your upcoming shows:

Upcoming show kanban board

Kanban what ?

According to Wikipedia, a kanban board visually displays work at various stages of a process using cards to represent work items and columns to represent each stage of the process. Cards are moved from left to right to show progress and to help coordinate teams performing the work. 

As you may have realized, this is an excellent way of displaying your upcoming shows. We have implemented drag & drop functionality for easy status updates too. 


Several other changes

Furthermore, we improved admin/user role switching, the exclusivity component and several bugfixes. 

A list of all changes can always be found on the release notes page on our website.

March 2022 update

We’ve implemented several small changes to make your life easier and improve user experience. Read along for more details.

Email alerts for band members

Ticking a simple checkbox when changing a show status, can email this update to all related band members. A simple adjustment that saves you time.

Ticket links automatically linked to your website

On a show page, you can now enter external links to ticket purchase pages or Facebook events. 
Thanks to our updated WordPress plugin, these links automatically appear on your website.

We’ve also added a “soldout” checkbox – put it to good use 😉

Several other changes

Furthermore, we improved our search functionalities and several warning pop-ups. Besides that, you can now link a primary booker to a band, and add invoices and expenses to tours. 

A list of all changes can always be found on the release notes page on our website.

Mobile-Friendly Design update

First of all, we would like to wish you a great 2022 with good health and lots of shows for you and your artists!
We hope together that things will get back to normal soon.

We have been working on an important update, and we’re happy to announce that one of the big to-do’s has been ticked off the list.

Mobile Friendly

Working as a booking agent isn’t a simple 9 to 5 job. Sometimes you’re on the road, and you can’t always access a computer to make some changes or view some important Booker Tools data.

Over the past few months, we have completely rewritten the Booker Tools layout files, and have made the website mobile-friendly.
In combination with our mobile apps for band members, all of our tools are now accessible on multiple devices.

Other than that, we have implemented some bug fixes and little changes to make the software work better.
