Available in mobile app version 6.0.1 and above

The Schedulista mobile app for iPhone and Android is a companion to your account to help manage your business on the go.

As a service provider, you can opt to receive push notifications whenever clients schedule or cancel an appointment or class booking online.

The push notifications are in addition to the email notifications you receive for these.

Benefits of push notifications

  • Be notified immediately on your mobile phone that clients have booked or cancelled an appointment online
  • Be notified immediately when other providers set, reschedule, or cancel an appointment directly on your calendar, if you're on a multi-user account
  • Tap the push notification to open the mobile app to the appointment on your calendar to quickly view appointment information

What is a push notification?

A push notification is a message sent from Schedulista to your mobile app that will pop up on your phone's home screen (and lock screen, depending on settings) to alert you when an appointment has been booked, cancelled, or rescheduled.
