What’s Up at Walla: Direct Links Make it Easier to Share and Book Classes on Social Media!

What has the Walla team been working on behind the scenes? Here are a few of our new (and favorite) features and functionality built to simplify and empower your everyday studio needs and operations. Oh, and if you missed Walla’s Marketing Suite release, here’s what you need to know!  


Class and Enrollment Direct Links: Copy, tap, book, buy! 


You asked for shorter, sharable links to your schedule—and we answered! With the new direct link feature, you can instantly copy any link to a class or enrollment in a more user-friendly form you can share across anywhere, from an instructor’s Instagram Stories to a QR code on a marketing flyer and more! Links can be accessed for:

  • Classes: Visit the studio schedule or class roster, choose the … menu option, and select “Get Direct Link”
  • Enrollment: Go to the enrollment schedule, click on the … menu option, and select “Get Direct Link” 

Direct links are a fun update to share with your staff—and a straightforward way to promote your studio brand and an individual offering that’s easy to book!


Client Self Check-In: Allow your members to book right on the spot


Do you use a tablet for your class check-in? Considering adding an iPad to your front desk? Then this update is for you! We are creating a more modern studio and class experience via self check-in. Offer your clients a more modern and independent exchange by allowing them to instantly add themselves to a class on your roster in real-time (if they have an account and applicable plan). They can search their name, select and class, book and be on their way into your class without downtime or customer service issues. It is as easy as tapping, booking, and attending class! You can easily find this feature under your Business Settings if you want to update the functionality. 


Two-way Texting Inbox: Never miss a message or client question again! 


Texting with individual clients is one of the best and most effective ways to upsell, engage, and deepen their connection with your studio, staff, and brand. And sometimes, a lot of text messages can come through (and need specific attention), so we are giving you the ability to pin and mark a message as unread straight to the top of your inbox! This will ensure all client text exchanges are seen and answered—and nothing goes unnoticed—which is one surefire way to foster trust and confidence with your clients and community. 


Appointment Revenue Report: See what you’re earning from high-quality, personalized experiences


Are you looking for details on how appointments impact your bottom line and studio success? Our all-new report lets you dive into the easy-to-understand data you can easily filter to see and compare the specifics, including date range and staff member. Plus, you can immediately click on a client profile from this report to see additional details about the appointment purchase. Note: The Appointment Revenue Report will only reflect settled-up appointments.
