About Schedulista

Schedulista is a scheduling software for booking, scheduling and accepting appointments online. Clients can book directly from a website, a Facebook page, or a link in an email or SMS. The solution was designed for any small business that accepts appointments such as hair stylists, estheticians, therapists, personal trainers, chiropractors, accountants, or teachers.

With Schedulista, users can add a Schedule Now button to their website, as well as online scheduling to a Facebook business page. Users can manage appointments online from anywhere at any time, from any device. Schedulista offers custom branding for public scheduling pages including themes, colors, and images.

Users can export / import client data for email marketing, or integrate directly with their MailChimp account. Built-in reports give organizations detailed information on clients and the performance of their business. Users can view upcoming appointments by day, week or month, and synchronize their online calendars with their smartphone via 2-way Google Calendar sync. Schedulista users can reschedule bookings using drag-and-drop, configure a cancelation policy, and allow or deny online bookings per service.

A secure credit card capture feature can be set up for one or all services, and enables users to charge for no shows. Clients can opt for unlimited SMS (text message) or email notifications, such as confirmations and reminders for their appointments. Schedulista provides a full client appointment history that can be exported to Excel.

    Schedulista Rocks My World

    I love Schedulista! As a small business, the price is right, the features awesome. I have referred many a student and colleague to Schedulista as it has streamlined my business and lets me focus on the therapy side of my practice. Brava, Schedulisa!

    Pros

    My only regret about Schedulista is that I did not enroll sooner. Schedulista has made a huge impact on my business - fewer no-shows, less wasted time rescheduling, less needless back-and-forth with clients. My clients love the reminders, both text and emails, plus the ease of changing an appointment iof necessary. I love customizing all the communications, from the initial welcome to follow-ups after an appointment.

    Cons

    This might be resolved in the latest version, but having a way to keep track of missed appointments.

    Usually, I delete MAs, but now that most of my clients are prepaid, having a way to note if it was a Missed Appointment (maybe simply a different color?) would be helpful.

    I have used this product for at least 3 years. At first it was great. Clients loved the autonomy with which they could schedule their appointments. The product was a little glitchy from my end, but customers loved it. Just a heads up, contrary to how it is supposed to work, it is NOT okay to sync with Google. That messes everything up, and when you go to change an appointment, it sometimes won't let you because it thinks you are making an illegal google change. I have reached out to the developers, but beyond one rather pithy email, they have not taken my questions or complaints seriously.

    There isn't a day where I don't have to stop what I'm doing to deal with some schedulista bs. And now, it is getting glitchy from my client's point of use also. Hence, I am on this site looking for something better.

    Pros

    It is the most flexible of the scheduling apps for handling recurring appointments and for handling a schedule that can change on a dime (personal trainer).

    Cons

    It is a crap-shoot whether or not the appointment will set (or delete). Sometimes requires doing the same thing over and over until it "takes." As a result, some of my clients won't use it anymore and just call to make their appointments, defeating the purpose of having the app in the first place. Trying to sync with Google creates a lot of issues that apparently require a LOT of automatically generated most annoying emails every time you make a change on the schedule.

    Overall experience is excellent.

    Pros

    I love that there are a lot of customizable features, but that it is not overly complicated to use. Also, the staff is super responsive and helpful with questions and concerns.

    Cons

    It does have some limitations, like not being able to take credit card numbers. It's also not linked with EHR, so when I do switch over from paper to electronic files, I will have to use a different software.

    Response from Schedulista

    Hi Kathryn,

    Thanks for the nice review!

    Note: Although we don't have a full point of sale (POS), we can take credit cards at the time of booking either as (a) credit card capture or (b) full payment.

    Credit card capture lets you charge the card later for any amount. This is usually used for charging for no-shows.

    Excellent. My clients love it, I love it, and the few times I've needed any help the support was clear, concise, and friendly.

    Pros

    Simple, effective, affordable. I have encouraged several other colleagues who are also solo practitioners to help streamline scheduling, no longer play phone tag, and reduce "no shows".

    Cons

    Nothing. My only fear is they will add more bells and whistles and then up the price.

    Response from Schedulista

    Thanks for the kind words and for spreading the word about online scheduling, Kayla. We appreciate it!
