Overview

Schedulista lets clients schedule appointments with you online through your personalized scheduling page. We also provide a scheduler you can embed on your own website.

You can also set appointments for clients directly on your calendar through the web dashboard or via the mobile app. 

Schedulista is comprised of the following:

  • Schedulista website - This dashboard is where you can view your calendar, set your availability, and edit your account settings.  
  • Scheduler - Also known as your public scheduling page, this is the personalized web page where clients go to schedule with you. You can find the URL (web address) to your scheduler on the Let clients know settings page.
  • Scheduler widget - You can embed the scheduler on your own website so that clients don't have to go anywhere else to schedule. This seamlessly blends in with your business branding. 
  • Mobile app - Schedulista has an app for iPhone and Andriod.  Through the app, you can view your calendar on the go and create appointments for clients.
