Available in mobile app version 6.0.1 and above
In addition to the email notifications, you can opt to receive push notifications to your phone through the mobile app whenever clients schedule or cancel an appointment or class booking online.
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. The notification will also appear in your notification center.
You can tap on the reminder to open to the appointment on your calendar in the mobile app for more details.
In-app notification pop-up toast
If you have the mobile app open, a provider notification will appear in a pop-up toast at the top of the app rather than in a push notification. You can tap on the pop-up toast to go directly to the appointment on your calendar.
