About Acuity Scheduling

Join the thousands of businesses who have booked millions of appointments already through Squarespace Scheduling! Easily offer appointment booking directly through your website with Squarespace online appointment scheduling software. Clients worldwide or local can schedule their appointments online, complete custom forms, and pay with a credit card, online 24/7. Whether your schedule is regular or irregular, you can manage any availability easily.

Squarespace acts like a superhero for your schedule (with way better taste in capes). Squarespace saves the day for business owners, freelancers, consultants, solopreneurs, and entrepreneurs, so they can get back in control of their businesses, their time, and their calendars—without breaking a sweat.

With automated appointment scheduling, Squarespace's superpowers relieve you of the back-and-forth email grunt-work, and lets your clients see your real-time availability, pick the date and time that works best for them, pay in advance (in-full, via deposit, or not until time of service), and book themselves.

A responsive scheduling page means that clients can book appointments from their desktop, tablet, or phone. You can also manage appointments directly from your own desktop, tablet, or phone.

With customizeable everything, Squarespace makes sure it’s not just another tool you have to deal with, manage, or remember to use. Squarespace works seamlessly in the background of your business, helping you look professional and get results. You can be as picky or nonchalant as you want with the level of flexibility your business needs. Have different offices that operate on different schedules? Got you covered. Want different staff members to have different calendars? No problem. Need everything to match, almost as if you built the software yourself? You got it! (After all, everyone knows that a true superhero doesn’t take the credit.)

Whether you’re booking hourly appointments, doing phone consultations, selling classes that students need to sign up for, or anything else that involves you selling your time, don’t put yourself at the mercy of hundreds of clients constantly badgering your inbox or your telephone.

Squarespace even helps you eliminate no-show appointments with automatic text message and e-mail reminders to clients.

Let Squarespace handle the busywork for you — so you can focus on your business.

    Acuity Scheduling Is Simple, Affordable, and Great For Start-Ups or Basic Needs

    Reviewed on 2022-08-31

    Acuity Scheduling is an excellent and affordable option for basic needs and a start-up practice....

    Acuity Scheduling is an excellent and affordable option for basic needs and a start-up practice. It's primary focus seems to be around creating solutions for scheduling and calendar management. If you need more complex SOAP notes, you might need a more robust system.

    Pros

    Acuity Scheduling is easy peasy to customize to your brand and set up for calendar/scheduling needs. It offers 2-way integration with Google Calendar and integrates with Stripe for payment processing. Clients can schedule their own appointments or appointments can be created manually by the clinician. Session packages can be created as well as coupons and gift certificates.

    Cons

    Cumbersome SOAP Notes. Acuity Scheduling allows you to create basic SOAP notes. More complex SOAP notes with dropdown boxes and radio buttons are much more complicated and time-consuming because more complex templates are not available. This is ultimately why I left Acuity Scheduling. I needed a more robust EMR because of the nature of my practice with telehealth physical therapy, personal training, nutrition consultations, and wellness coaching.

    Very good. I even wrote a blog post recommending it a few years ago. As a web designer, I have recommended it to many individuals who need this functionality.

    Pros

    Integration into an existing website was critical - I did not want to send users from the business website to a 3rd party website to book their appointment. Along with the ability to require a deposit, this helps to make the business profitable by reducing the expense of missed/cancelled appointments.

    Cons

    The styling options for integration into an existing website are very minimal. This is small, but would be a nice touch to have a very customizable look to match the existing branding of a business website.

    Alternatives Considered

    WooCommerce

    Reasons for Switching to Acuity Scheduling

    Bookings for WooCommerce did not easily integrate with calendars. It also had a pretty high annual fee and required more back-end knowledge to set up and maintain. Also, since it requires WooCommerce to be installed on the website, it meant I would have to install an entire e-commerce platform even though I sell nothing else on the website. Perhaps if the site was already selling products directly using WooCommerce, then I might have used WooCommerce Bookings instead of Acuity - but not otherwise.

    Acuity was the first scheduler I used and remains the easiest software for booking, processing client payments and keeping my business and life running smoothly.

    Pros

    Acuity offers so many features that make scheduling clients a breeze! I love that you can create packages and subscriptions and process client payments all in one platform. Integrating Zoom is also fantastic for those like me who work exclusively online and need an easefuk way of getting meeting info to the relevant parties.

    Cons

    It's rare but there's nothing at all I dislike about the platform.

    It has many features and has met my needs without any hassels and is at a price that a small start up business can afford.

    Pros

    I love the ease of use and cost effectiveness of Acuity. Even in the free version they offer most of the options that someone would need. I upgraded to the paid feature to be able to accept payments when someone books. This saves me yet another step and lets me know that someone is serious if they are willing to pay at the time of booking. I had used Calendly for several months at the prompting of a business mentor before switching to Acuity. I was having my calendar constantly reset with my times wide open for people to schedule. If I did not check it every morning I ran the risk of someone booking an appointment during a time that I was not available. This is not only embarrassing but very unprofessional! I have not had this happen even once since using Acuity. I also use the notes feature during my discovery session I have all of the questions there that I typically ask and can record their replies.

    Cons

    Honestly I have not found one thing that i have not liked abut this software. It has allowed me to do much more that I was expecting.
