NEW! Book multiple participants per class NEW! Book multiple participants per class

Another awesome feature from BookSteam! Clients can now book multiple participants per class session.

Give me an example where it would be useful?

Mike has two kids, Jill and Patrick, who both love Math. Mike wants to enroll both of his kids into the mathematics class. School that offers math classes uses BookSteam to schedule classes online. Mike goes to the school's BookSteam booking page, selects two participants, picks class date/time, enters information for both kids and books the class. It's that easy!
