Scheduling page or embedded scheduler
We'll use Rocket Salon, one of our demo businesses, as an example.
Also known as your public scheduling page, this is the personalized web page where clients go to book with you. This simple page is great if you don't have your own website or prefer to not have scheduling directly on your site.
You can find the URL (web address) to your scheduler on the Let clients know settings page.
Scheduling page example: https://salon.schedulista.com
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.
Embedded scheduler example: http://schedulista-salon.squarespace.com/scheduler
Designing your scheduling page
More information: Setting your scheduler
On the Scheduler (design) settings page, you can adjust the color of the links (accent color) used on the page to match your business. Otherwise, the colors, fonts, and layout of the page cannot be adjusted.
You can add a logo & photos to your scheduler on the Scheduler settings page. On the Language tab of the Scheduler settings page, you can change the language of your online scheduler, and you can customize the headers and the booking button of your scheduler.
Adding a button or link to your website
More information: How should I add scheduling to my website?
Adding Schedulista to your website
You can embed your scheduler directly onto your website using HTML code. You can find the HTML code for the scheduler widget on the Add to your website page in your settings. Click here for more information.
For those using WordPress, we offer a plugin that may work for your site. The plugin allows you to add the scheduler widget using WP shortcode instead of the full HTML code.
Wix or Weebly
Please note that if you embed the scheduler into your website, we remove the logo, business name, statement, and any photos added as we assume that you already have these items on your website.
Payments & credit card capture
More information: Payments & credit card capture
Schedulista integrates with Stripe payment processing to offer the ability to take online credit & debit card payments. You can read more on Stripe integration and payments here.
The credit card capture feature allows you to require clients to enter card details to secure their appointment but not charge them at that time. This can be used to charge a late cancellation or no-show fee.
