‘Time and software updates wait for none.’
Well, not exactly how the saying goes, but it’s just as fitting if you think about it. In this day and age, operating on an outdated software is as good as operating on no software. Which is why improving on an application program is as crucial as building it from ground up.
The WooCommerce Scheduler is no exception to this, and has just received a number of cool upgrades. Here’s a lowdown on the latest additions to the best product scheduling plugin there is for WooCommerce:
WooCommerce Scheduler can now be operated in two distinct modes: Per Day or Entire Duration.
This setting can be found under WooCommerce>Settings>General on your Admin Panel, as shown:
Scheduler Mode: Per Day
When you schedule a Product for specific dates and time under the Per Day mode, the Product would then be available to shoppers only between the set timings on all the dates falling between start and end date.
This mode also lets you pick the days of the week when you want your product to be available for purchase.
For instance, if I schedule a product as follows:
The Product would then be available for purchase on all the weekdays falling between 1st and 7th October between 7am and 11pm only.
And this is why setting up a Saturday Special lunch on your restaurant’s WooStore will never be easier.
Scheduler Mode: Entire Duration
Scheduling a product under the Entire Duration mode will display it to the shoppers for the entirety of the duration falling between the Start Time on Start Date and End Time on End Day.
In the above example, if I were to change the mode from Per Day to Entire Duration:
Shopper’s on the store can now buy the Product at all times between 7am on 18th of December and 11pm on 25th of December. Rings a bell? Sounds like a Christmas Sale to me.
Hope that sheds some light on the things that the latest iteration of the WooCommerce Scheduler can do for you, but just reading about it will never suffice when you can update your plugin NOW and try it first-hand.
