Acuity Scheduling

Get to know Acuity Scheduling

Acuity Scheduling does it all. It's a scheduling app that lets customers manage their own appointments, right from your website or from Acuity Scheduling's custom page for your firm. They can see the times you're available, select when they want to meet with you—or even set up a recurring meeting, perhaps to get a hair cut at your barber shop every 2 weeks on the same day. Then, your signup form can ask for additional info—including name, email address, and any extra form fields you want to add—and can charge the customer for the booking. With that done, the customer can add the appointment to their own calendar, make an account to view all of their appointments with your firm, or even reschedule the appointment to another time you're available.

On your end, you'll first set up your appointment types, with custom times, pricing, and form fields for each one. Appointments can be public where anyone could book them, or can be private where only you can set them up or share them with a private link (perfect to offer special appointment openings or pricing to repeat customers). You'll manage your intake form questions together, and then can choose which of those form questions to include on each booking. And, you can set the hours you're available each day, with an override for specific days to book holidays. Sync your calendar to Acuity, and it can watch your calendar for other meetings and automatically mark you as unavailable for appointments during that time, along with adding client appointments to your calendar automatically.

You'll then be able to customize your Acuity Scheduling appointment page or embed it into your own site. Want to charge for appointments? You can use Stripe, Square, Braintree,, or PayPal to process your payments. You can also offer special packages to let customers buy 3 sessions at once, say, or sell gift certificates to let customers book appointments for others.

Then, you'll need to make sure no one misses their appointments—and that you don't forget an appointment, either. Acuity Scheduling keeps everything on track, with automated emails and SMS notifications. You'll get a reminder when the appointment is created, and when it's due. And, your appointments will be in your personal calendar, so you can glance at your phone and know what appointment's coming up next.

All you'll have to worry about is making your client meetings the best they can be—Acuity Scheduling takes care of the rest. You'll never have to juggle double-booked appointments or worry about contacts forgetting about a meeting again.
