Helpful Setup Wizard

The first time you install and activate the Simply Schedule Appointments plugin on your WordPress site, 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.

Manage Settings

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 in the WordPress admin dashboard, and you can get all the details and cancel appointments as needed.

Flexible

Other WordPress 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.

Fast and Powerful

We’re relying on the latest and greatest technologies for Simply Schedule Appointments. Our responsive and intuitive user interface is built using React.js and the WordPress REST API. That allows us to keep the plugin fast and efficient.

SSA is also fully responsive and will work easily on any device - even touch screens. So whether you’re managing your appointment availability from your tablet or your customer is booking an appointment from their smart phone, SSA will work dependably and reliably.
