What is an Online Scheduling Software?
In short, an online scheduling software is a handy tool that allows your clients to book appointments with you online. It can be embedded into your website, or you can use a separate website for this. You set your working hours and the services that you offer. Your clients can then choose the wanted service and a time that works for them that is available in your calendar. Once they book an appointment, that time can no longer be booked. This kind of software usually offers more apps and functions that can simplify other parts of your work as well.
Online booking at EasyPractice
Our Online Booking system streamlines appointment scheduling via your website, offering a plethora of customizable features. Depending on your and your clients’ preferences, you can selectively activate these functions. Some are indispensable, such as calendars and service listings. Within this framework, you can define your services, including descriptions, pricing, and daily booking limits. Client-scheduled appointments are automatically integrated into your calendar, but you also have the option to manually input appointments.
For those with multiple studios or instructors, you can create distinct calendars for each, ensuring efficient organization. Furthermore, the Online Booking system extends beyond basic services; clients can also enroll in courses and events.

Organize events and classes with your online scheduling software
Holding classes and other events is an essential part of your work. Easy practice gives you the option to create an Event in your online booking. While creating it, you provide all the necessary information and then people can sign up for the event the same way they would usually book online appointments with you. Once someone books to participate in an event, you receive a notification. That way you can always keep track of new participants. You set up the maximum amount of attendees for each event and the deadline for signing up.
If you wish to update your attendees, or simply provide them with more information, you can send e-mails or SMS to them. Email or SMS event reminders are very useful in making sure your attendees show up, thus lowering the number of cancellations. If a cancellation does happen, we have waiting lists that you can use to fill out the now-empty spot. If you are worried about invoicing a group of participants online, no worries, it is really easy! Under ‘Invoicing’, you can easily create and send invoices for all participants that have not yet received an invoice.
