 Meet the New Widget Configurator

Due to the success of the ResDiary Widget Configurator, we have created a new and improved version. The new configurator provides a totally flexible and customisable online booking widget. It can mirror your brand’s look and be incorporated into your website in a totally seamless manner. If you are a ResDiary customer and want to take the new widget configurator for a spin, get in touch by email to request a trial by emailing

New Time Slot Colour Alerts

In the diary booking process, if a booking that is about to be made breaks a rule, the time slots where this applies will be highlighted amber to draw attention to this more easily. For example, when a close out is in place and a booking is created, then the slots that are closed out will be shown in amber.
