About Acuity Scheduling

Join the thousands of businesses who have booked millions of appointments already through Squarespace Scheduling! Easily offer appointment booking directly through your website with Squarespace online appointment scheduling software. Clients worldwide or local can schedule their appointments online, complete custom forms, and pay with a credit card, online 24/7. Whether your schedule is regular or irregular, you can manage any availability easily.

Squarespace acts like a superhero for your schedule (with way better taste in capes). Squarespace saves the day for business owners, freelancers, consultants, solopreneurs, and entrepreneurs, so they can get back in control of their businesses, their time, and their calendars—without breaking a sweat.

With automated appointment scheduling, Squarespace's superpowers relieve you of the back-and-forth email grunt-work, and lets your clients see your real-time availability, pick the date and time that works best for them, pay in advance (in-full, via deposit, or not until time of service), and book themselves.

A responsive scheduling page means that clients can book appointments from their desktop, tablet, or phone. You can also manage appointments directly from your own desktop, tablet, or phone.

With customizeable everything, Squarespace makes sure it’s not just another tool you have to deal with, manage, or remember to use. Squarespace works seamlessly in the background of your business, helping you look professional and get results. You can be as picky or nonchalant as you want with the level of flexibility your business needs. Have different offices that operate on different schedules? Got you covered. Want different staff members to have different calendars? No problem. Need everything to match, almost as if you built the software yourself? You got it! (After all, everyone knows that a true superhero doesn’t take the credit.)

Whether you’re booking hourly appointments, doing phone consultations, selling classes that students need to sign up for, or anything else that involves you selling your time, don’t put yourself at the mercy of hundreds of clients constantly badgering your inbox or your telephone.

Squarespace even helps you eliminate no-show appointments with automatic text message and e-mail reminders to clients.

Let Squarespace handle the busywork for you — so you can focus on your business.

    Overall, I love Acuity Scheduling, it's my right hand in this business I'm running by myself. It takes a huge load off of my plate.

    Once things are set up - which can be as easy or a grueling as you want to make it - it's just a seamless part of my life and business.

    Pros

    I love the customizability of the software, I can integrate it with many programs, and I can make things super simple for my clients.

    Cons

    I've had several times where I've had to go delete a whole series of appointments and there's no easy option to delete an entire section of appointments.
    For instance I had a series of webinars that were Group Appointments with several dates each. I decided to discontinue that program in lieu of a new direction and initiative for the company. I had to manually delete each one, typing DELETE each time. If I could delete an entire "category" of appointments, this would be much better.

    Reasons for Switching to Acuity Scheduling

    Acuity Scheduling was already available and easily integrated into my Squarespace website. This was good because I decided that I didn't want to create a website from scratch, rather I would use a "drag and drop" system with some customizability. It just so happened that Squarespace met my needs there, AND as a vital part of their services, they already had a scheduling application that I would receive a DISCOUNT on if I bought into their services. Squarespace, and of course Acuity Scheduling, were a "no-brainer" decision for me and my solo consulting business.

    Easy scheduling, integrates calendars and online meetings

    Features like package and discount management, an embeddable design, and support for several time zones are only the beginning. When compared to the prior scheduling program we utilized, this one has far less issues. It's so simple, yet so effective. Client calendars are synced and alerts are sent out automatically. Zoom's user interface makes setting up online meetings a breeze.

    Pros

    Easily its most appealing quality is how simple it is to use. You may go right in with no prior knowledge of CRM or CS and you'll pick this stuff up quickly. I was finally able to find a convenient way to organize my time, communicate with my clients, and keep track of all of our scheduled meetings. The search function responds quickly and accurately and ignores case. Accessing customer information is simple, and I can keep tabs on scheduling alterations and other variables with ease. The survey design was also straightforward. I like how it adapts to your time zone automatically.

    Cons

    Crunchy user interface. It's not user-friendly, and the drop-down selections don't always appear. Banning user-submitted content is inconvenient since you can't just blacklist any new content that users could submit. I fear that, as an administrator, I would encounter several difficulties when first delving into the matter. When integrations fail, it really stinks. Not terrible overall.

    Acuity Scheduling has helped us optimize our business. Offering appointment window by tracking when Iam available and letting my clients schedule then is magical. I also get notified through my email when a booking is made. And also the wait-list calendar has ensured we don't have colliding appointments which has proven to be paramount in embracing a hospitality driven approach to hair care.

    Pros

    As we continue transform our business by adopting tech solutions that personalize the guest or rather customer experience, Acuity Scheduling has been in the centre of this transformation. It's implementation process was a a quick fix that didn't affect the salon operations. It delivers a free trial that we utilized greatly for learning purposes to familiarize with it. Comes with a slick and straightforward UI that makes it user friendly without prior knowledge. Acuity Scheduling delivers a range of features that we have found very helpful in running our day to day beauty salon business. We are able to create appointments for the different services we offer while customizing it to including details like duration, prices, description and images to highlight those services. As a staff member Iam added in the acuity and it allows me to find upcoming appointments and manage booking. I have also managed to create my own calendar soo I can be booked personally and enables me enter the specific hours Iam a available which I have synced with my personal email for notifications and alerts. It is also easy to offer discounts for those diehard clients soo that we off some amount on their next appointment. Integrating it with stripe payments has streamlined the collection of online payment during booking and record payments made in person. Lastly tracking the use of Acuity Scheduling using the report functionality allows for improvement.

    Cons

    Acuity scheduling is the master of conveniences through coordinated bookings and salon appointments. The information available online and it's responsive technical team has ensured that our use experience has no hutches.
