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.

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' soccer matches, for which you need to block out time. You can also set repeating personal appointments to help tune your availability.

Clients never see personal appointments set on your schedule.
