Helpful Setup Wizard
The first time you install and activate Simply Schedule Appointments, we walk you through getting all set up with a handy and helpful setup wizard. The wizard walks you through the general settings and through creating your first appointment type.
If it's not your first time using the plugin, you can opt out and go right to the settings screen. But the wizard is so efficient and handy, we think you might want to use it even when it's not your first time.
Manage Appointment Types
Simply Schedule Appointments uses appointment types to let you specify different types of appointments your clients or customers might want to book. You can set up a quick 15 minute phone call or a one hour on-site meeting, and set rules around when each of those types of appointments can be booked, how much time should be left free before and after appointments, and how far in advance customers need to book.
You can easily add a brand new appointment type, clone an existing one, or delete an existing appointment type.
You can head to the settings tab any time to adjust your general settings for the plugin. As our feature set grows, this is the place you'll come to in order to enable and disable different features.
So if you move to a new timezone, decide on a different date format, or schedule a new vacation time that you need to mark as unavailable for appointments, you've got a simple and easy place to make those updates.
Book and manage appointments
Your customers get a simple and easy interface for selecting the type of appointment they're booking, selecting an available date and time, and entering their details. When they're finished, they can add the appointment to their Google calendar or download an iCal file.
You'll see a list of your upcoming appointments, and you can get all the details and cancel appointments as needed.

Other appointment scheduling plugins are either too simple or too complicated. They lack the basic features you need and want, or, if they do have those features, as you grow and add services, staff, and locations they become difficult and confusing to use.
Simply Schedule Appointments has all the features you need - without all the confusion and clutter of settings that don’t apply to you. Simply Schedule Appointments is ready to grow with your business, but helps you avoid unnecessary complexity at the beginning.
