As of April 2020, this feature is temporarily unavailable for new businesses to add the button to your Instagram business profile. Existing businesses that currently use the Book button will be able to continue to use it.
We are working to have this feature available again soon. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Schedulista offers integration with social media to make it easier for your clients to find and book with you online. The Instagram mobile app offers "action buttons" you can add to an Instagram business profile to allow your clients to take actions right from your profile page.
Adding a Book action button allows clients to schedule appointments from your Instagram business profile using the Instagram app on their mobile phones.
Is a Book button the right option for me?
The Book button is only available for use within the Instagram mobile app. The button will not appear on your business profile on the web (e.g. if a client is using a computer, tablet, or web browser to view your Instagram profile).
For this reason, you might want to include a booking link in your profile in addition to the Book button (or maybe instead of the Book button).
