Schedulista allows your clients to book with you online 24/7. You add your services and set your regular schedule and appointment times so that clients can book with you only when you want to be available.
You can add a link or button to your standalone scheduling page to your own website -- or emails or social media -- to allow clients to book. You also have the option to embed the scheduler in a widget on your website so that clients don't have to leave your site to schedule their appointments.
You may want to set up a manual redirect to get your clients back to your website. This can be done in a custom flow.
This option adds a link on the appointment summary page that would redirect clients to your website, to a different page on your website, or to another website once they've finished scheduling, if necessary. This custom flow allows you to integrate scheduling into a specific customer experience.
Integrating your scheduler into a flow
Adding a query string -- everything following the question mark [?] -- to the scheduler URL will define the behavior of the scheduler in the custom flow.
(1) Go to Settings > Let clients know
(2) Copy the URL for your scheduler
(3) Add a forward slash (/) and then a question mark (?) to the end of your URL
(4) Add parameters of the query string (see below), separated by an ampersand (&)
e.g. https://salon.schedulista.com?rt_text=[text will go here]&rt_url=[URL to redirect clients will go here]
The flow parameters are:
rt_url -- The return URL
rt_text (optional) -- The anchor text (highlighted in the screenshot in the What clients will see section below)
Our demo hair salon wants to direct clients to a page on their site after the client schedules their appointment. Adding a query string to the salon's scheduler URL will create a link to the custom site page on the appointment summary page.
The URL will look like this:
What clients will see
Clients will see this on the summary page:
Using the scheduler widget in a custom flow
You can use the custom flow URL for the scheduler widget you embed on your own website in the HTML code for the widget.
You would replace the standard scheduler source ("src") URL for the iframe with the custom flow URL (in bold below).
Using the Schedule Now button in a custom flow
Adding a Schedule Now button allows you to link clients from your site to the standalone scheduling page we've created for your account.
For the button in a custom flow, you would replace the reference ("href") URL for the link with the custom flow URL (in bold below).
