Change Wording Feature Removed?

Recommended Posts

Hey all—just wondering why the "Change Wording" feature was removed from Scheduling? It's especially annoying for my clients who are only offering Group Classes when all we can display at the top of a Scheduling block is "Choose Appointment," which doesn't quite feel like the right call-to-action. Is there any way around this?

I have a lot of clients trying to move to Squarespace from other class-booking systems like Mind Body Online, GloFox, Kajabi etc but this has been a stumbling block for them. It kind of adds to an overall feeling that we're forcing the system to do something it wasn't really designed for, since you can't really organize and present group classes for booking in an elegant way.

Curious if anyone else has noticed this or is struggling with this issue with clients?

As you say, new phrases cannot be created. The only workaround is using custom CSS but you;d need to be on the (much more expensive) Powerhouse Plan to do this.

I have no insight as to why this is being removed but I hope this means that a new (better?) solution for changing fixed phrases is on the way. 

Squarespace employees don't routinely monitor this forum for feedback (see the guidelines - item 6) so please contact Squarespace Customer Care if the removal of this feature will cause you problems.

How are we supposed to run a business in French or a bilingual business? Squarespace doesn't support multiple languages.... now Accuity doesn't support any wording/language changes..... are we in 2022..... do you guys need help with your programming ? I can quit my dayjob as a physician and learn C++ if you need help... common....

The Scheduler is great..... but what is it good for if it can't be used and isn't versatile.....  We can't even use Weglot with it.... anyways.....

Please do not get rid of the wording tool.  Acuity's wording doesn't fit with my offerings -- 

"Coupon" is confusing to people-- they think that is a discount rather than their "pass" 

I had to work very hard to create language to make the process of booking an appointment easier for my clients and to make sure people do not book an appointment without using their pass.  

The wording tool was the only way I could get Acuity to work for our business.

So since SS took away the ability to change the text on the client scheduling page I could do with some help to change the word appointment to booking throughout. Does anyone know how to do this?136115549_Screenshot2023-01-31at15_23_15.thumb.png.b56b2c4acd355b8a0c00fc6a893431b2.png
