Recommended Posts

Check out everything new that happened at Squarespace in May below. Which updates are you most excited about? 

Acuity Scheduling

Appointment receipts 

To save you time, you can now send your clients email receipts after payment automatically. This can be enabled in the Email Settings panel. Receipts include your logo (or your business name) and an order summary. Prior to this update, receipts had to be sent manually from the payment processor.

Bio Sites 

Watermark removal 

With Unfold Pro, you can now remove the “Create a free Bio Site” watermark in the Bio Sites web editor.

UK shipping improvements 

We’ve added four regions to UK shipping options: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. You can select which of these specific regions you ship to and limit shipping by zip code.

Websites and domains

Build Your Own Template is now Squarespace Blueprint

Squarespace Blueprint, previously called Build Your Own Template , is a way to design your site from scratch with guidance to help you along. You’ll design your homepage, add any other pages you need, and select your color palette. While you can start with a template for initial inspiration, this is a great option if you already have a strong idea of what your site should look like.

Form block international improvements

We’ve made several improvements to the form block to support international customers. These improvements are now live on new and existing form blocks: 

  • Addresses: Addresses now have a country drop-dow. The selected country will determine the field’s formatting. The default country is based on what’s selected in your site’s Language & Region panel.. 
  • Phone numbers: Phone numbers now have an optional country code drop-down. The default country is based on what’s selected in your site’s Language & Region panel.  
  • Dates: Dates are now a single date picker field. The field format will match the locale of the visitor.
  • Times: Times are now a single time picker field. The field format will match the locale of the visitor.

Resize multiple blocks at once 

You can now resize multiple blocks at the same time on Fluid Engine sites. Simply select the blocks and then resize the blocks to your liking.

Video block upload improvements 

We’ve introduced background uploading to video blocks to improve the editing experience and to reduce failed uploads. When you upload to a video block, you can continue making other edits while the video uploads in the background.

Hello, not sure where to post this. I want to thank you for all the amazing updates and upgrades!

I am so impressed with all the awesome updates and upgrades Squarespace has done these past months. Wow! I hope people who have tried Squarespace before all these new great things get to try them. You listened to your customers and made so many wonderful updates and upgrades: easy access to content in the assets library, not just duplicating but saving a section to be reused across the site, assessable "add block," functional grid, effective formatting for specific content or across the site, I could go on and on.

Thank you for making the new Squarespace so functional, elegant, and powerful!
