Block out time on your calendar when you are unavailable to offer services

Schedulista is designed to support a regular weekly work schedule, but you are able to adjust your availability by blocking time out of your schedule with "personal" appointments. You can manage your availability through the web dashboard, as well as the Schedulista mobile app.

Benefits of personal appointments

  • Block out time when you are unavailable, as short as 5 minutes up to full work days

  • Use appointment notes to quickly identify what the personal appointment is for on your calendar (ex. doctor's appointment, child's soccer match, lunch break, etc.)

  • Repeating personal appointments for daily breaks, split work days, vacations, and blocking out long-term time off

  • Aid in setting frequently changing weekly schedules or future availability

Two types of appointments can be set in Schedulista: service appointments and personal appointments.

Service appointments can be set by you or booked online by clients, either as individual appointments or as classes. Personal appointments are set by you as a provider directly on your calendar. They help you to block out time on your schedule when you are unavailable to offer services.

Personal appointments can be used for any personal or business event, like doctor's appointments, business meetings, or kids' activities, for which you need to block out time.

Clients never see your personal appointments (or any booked appointments).

Repeating personal appointments

Repeating personal appointments allow you to block out time on a recurring basis for things like lunches or breaks, or to regularly split your work days into separate shifts.

You can also use repeating personal appointments to quickly block out long-term time on your schedule for things like extended travel, vacations or holidays, parental leave, leaves of absence or sabbaticals, seasonal breaks, and more. If you're just starting scheduling for your business, repeating personal appointments can also block out time until you are ready to offer services.

Changing schedules

Personal appointments can also be used to tweak your schedule if it is frequently changing or you want to set up a future change to your work hours.
