Pros: -have customers pre-pay for appointments

-manage multiple types of appointment and multiple employees

-fine tune cancellation periods

-charge cancellation fees

-useful analytics

Cons: -While there is a client list, which is great, it does not connect back to the charges or appointments made by that client, so it's very difficult to backtrack and figure out how a client has interacted with your company. For instance, a client calls and gives you their name and would like to cancel an appointment for a refund. The easy thing would be to find their name in the client list and see their appointment and charge, click over and cancel and refund. Right now, you'd have to click through and find their appointment by looking week-by-week. It gets even harder if someone has canceled the appointment. Then there's no way to find the payment they made, e.g. to verify that they've been refunded.

Overall: This appointment system has changed the way we work and increased our revenue. And the regular updates are incredibly useful, systematically solving one issue after another. We are so happy with this service.

Pros: Easy to use both for my staff and clients. Interactive, staff can view and help manage each other's schedule. Also, can block off time if needed.

Cons: I really haven't found anything I don't like with this system. Extremely pleased

Overall: My business is a referral based appointment only business. I have tried two other online schedule systems prior to square. Both proved to be complicated and confusing for myself and my clients causing many missed appointments by both of us. Since Square not only has my appointment calendar run like a well oil machine but I have been able to add therapists and because it's so interactive I am able to now schedule for a massage client who would like to try a facial. Also, it is extremely easy to adjust the services to allow for monthly specials.

Pros: I like the reminder portion the best. Patients get their reminder immediately after setting the appointment and then again 2 hours before. I also like how it lists their prior visits.

Cons: I would love to be able to click on a patients name on the appointment screen and then scan their card so that it would track more of the individual services. I would also love to be able to use it from my desktop computer.

Overall: I love using square appointments. It is easy and convenient. Changes are quick and patients love the reminders.

Recommendations to other buyers: Faster chip reading. And maybe multiple beeps when the chip has been read. People don't hear it and then We forget to get their cards back to them.

Pros: Square is my go to on the go payment processor. I have the app on my phone and I can easily swipe credit cards through a reader they sent over. Very easy to use and if I ever have any questions their tech support is there with fast and helpful answers. I can literally complete a transaction in 30 seconds, it so fast and easy to use

Cons: I don't have any cons about this payment processor. Sometimes I have to swipe twice through my reader, but I think I've used it too much and it's starting to die (or it could be my headphone jack connection)

Overall: Overall Square has helped me take payments wherever, whenever. I really like the convenience of a cloud based payment processor

Pros: I can find everything I need in owning a small business all in one place. Other companies do not do everything that square provides in one.

Cons: Services are more tailored to a product based business as opposed to a service based business making some of the features a little more difficult to utilize like I would like to use them.

Overall: This is a wonderful product. It makes owning a small business very doable. Most companies only offer of part of what square offers all in one package. They are easy to communicate with but rarely need to do so. I also like that if you don't want some of the services you have the option not to pay for them if you do not need that service.

Pros: I like that the software automatically sends text and email reminders -- my customers really appreciate that.

Cons: For the mobile app, it would be great to be able to pull up pending appointments in a list format.

Also, it would be very helpful to be able to overwrite calendar entry data in google calendar instead of using the square app.

Overall: This program is great, and is simple to use.

Pros: Ease of use for both me and clients, easy to write notes and track clients, easy to do personal notes to clients on confirmation, can instantly track history. Great communication, great client history without any effort. And that includes their tip history as well -- all tracked through Square.

Cons: The fact that if I allow clients to cancel appointments on line, a cancellation shows up FOREVER on the overview page. Annoying.

Overall: Wow, I love it, my clients love it, don't know how I would operate without it... Fifty percent of my clients book without me ever emailing/texting/calling. They request an appt, I accept, they show up. Totally frees up my time, don't even need to make "reminder" calls anymore.

Recommendations to other buyers: Let us edit the notifications on the Overview page.

I can understand the software great. The fee for appointment book is very reasonable. The fee for accessories are also awesome.

Pros: Super simple to set up and it's tied into my point-of-sale app. Also includes a booking webpage that is customizable, as well as a booking button customizer. There is even marketing options and customer loyalty programs built into the Square platform as well. It's an all-in-one delight of an app!

Cons: Set up can be a bit time-consuming, but what do you expect from such a robust, all-inclusive platform? It goes well beyond the scope of "just a pos" or "only a scheduling app".

Pros: I have used this scheduling software as a client (booking services through someone using Square) many times, and it's very versatile. I've easily booked hair appointments to doctor's appointments through my phone. This not only saves me the hassle of calling and waiting on hold, as well as saves businesses valuable time--when otherwise they'd be answering phones.

Cons: For clients who are using this software for scheduling for their own business, it's important to always keep your appointments up to date. Nothing could be more frustrating than booking through this program, then finding out it was an incorrect appointment slot.

Square has everything you could need and now offering appointments for free for individuals!

Pros: this is easy to use and you really have the ability to adapt easily to the interface. The Square Appointments app has now been combined with Square POS. You are able to book appointments, send invoices, and use the POS all using one app now! It's definintely streamlined for us busy business owners.

Cons: There is an option to create recurring appointments but you can only select it for that day. Ex: Monday for the next X amount of weeks. I haven't been able to set it for MWF for X amount of weeks.

Overall: Square Appointments has been easy to use, the new updates are great, and it's a one stop shop for my business and my clients.

Pros: I've written a review for this software in relation to our nutrition therapy business, but I've also started using this for my own personal nutrition consulting, which is structured very differently. I do freelance consulting and work remotely. The square system allows me to manage my schedule and clients from anywhere- with any device. It couldn't be easier or more helpful.

Cons: NO cons whatsoever. I am a huge fan of all the Square software AND their customer service. If there's ever a feature lacking they're sure to put in requests for you and they always go above and beyond to help.

Pros: I like the how my schedule comes up for the day. The reports, easy usage.

Cons: I hate having to login with my email and password over and over. I wish there were an app that I could stay logged in or just put in a 4 digit code for security purposes since my clients credit/debit cards could be charged.

My customers hate that they have to put their card number in every time.

The mobile layout needs a little work on some pages

Overall: It's been smooth sailing with a few waves here and there. I'm really glad I can use both the square and the appointments together versus two different applications for one purpose.

Recommendations to other buyers: Maybe an option to pay for services in advance.

Pros: It has a dedicated iPad app.

Cons: Customer has to fill out his name, email, phone and credit card every single time appointment is booked. That's annoying and enough to steer even the most loyal customers away.

Overall: Limited feature set for the price compared to cheaper more feature-rich alternatives available on the market. It's year 2016, and makers of this software still haven't implemented a simple feature like service name showing in the booked time slot when staff view the calendar. Unless you're using their iPad app their web calendar interface is horrible. Worst of all, this system is so primitive that it forces customers to enter full name, phone, and email address EVERY SINGLE TIME to book an appointment. The only reason we switched to Square Appointments in the first place was to prevent no-shows by activating "Hold Card for No-Show Protection". This feature is half-baked because there's no way to save card info for future bookings. As of November 2016 no improvements have been made to mitigate that despite their tech staff promising to fix it when we first signed up with them in May 2016. I have sent them tons of usability improving ideas but only a few were addressed. We're on the verge of canceling our account with them because our clients constantly complain about what I described above, but worst of all we've noticed major decline in booking conversions from even our current clients, let alone newcomers. It holds promise, it is just not ready for prime time.

Recommendations to other buyers: According to how slow their development team works, it will probably be ready for prime time a year from now, that's Nov. 2017.

Pros: What I like best about Square Appointments is how easy it is for people to make appointments.

Cons: Getting everything set up is relatively easy, it can be a little more difficult if you get overwhelmed by technical things. But I think it is the nature of the task, and not much they can do to make it easier.

Overall: If you need customers to be able to make appointment online, this is the service for you!

Pros: Square Appointments business scheduling system is simple to use. It allows you to schedule client appointments, and determine if you require prepayment for bookings- an important feature.

Cons: The only Con i'd have to say is the pricing on this product. If you're using this software for something that's not necessarily actually making you money, it may be worth just scheduling through outlook or something like that.

Pros: NOTHING is good about this program, at the time we were excited to have square appointments since we had the POS.

But it has crashed, lost valuable information and jeopardized our security by letting unauthorized users log into our business account.

Cons: The system has constantly crashed, for over a month now we have lost client information, appointments and our calendars were wiped out due to an upgrade.

There are only "managers" that only take feed back, refuse to transfer you to an engineer and lose notes on the issues.

They also have breached the security of our stylists and our business by interlinking their appointments application to our Point of sale.

NO ONE should be able to have access to the business account. These stylists are independent contractors!

Pros: the ease of use is great.

Cons: There's a lot of things that could be improved. For instance, calculate how many appoints were cancelled or No Shows for a month. That's just one example.

Overall: Pretty good but sometimes if a customer is on auto-repeat you cannot mark them as a No Show. The only option is Cancel Appointment. Also, it would be nice if you could adjust the settings to have for example 3 spots available in a 1 hour time slot. So if there were 2 people there, it would show that 1 spot is available. This would be great for my business because I have a semi-private personal training facility where I can train up to 3 people per hour. As of now if 1 person is there than it shows that no appointments are available at that time slot.

Pros: I loved that I could set up dates/times of availability and allow payments to be made upon scheduling an appointment. Other features I loved were keeping track of your invoices & customers.

Cons: The calendar doesn't sync well with Google Calendars, which is what I & my staff use most. Had to manually change the availability times day by day instead of syncing with my current Google Calendar.

Overall: Was able to allow clients to schedule their own time of appointments and to keep track of invoices.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the calendar view when appointments are scheduled. It is very easy to navigate through the mobile site when looking at your schedule. The calendar is sharp and I like how there are different tabs at the top to navigate through clients, the clients who have booked online, as well as the basic overview of booking details. There is a notes section in each clients account so you can put notes about the client or formulas/things to notate on their account.

Cons: What I did not like while testing out this booking software is that it is too basic. The schedule is pretty much all one color and I like to see a breakdown in a detailed report for each client. I want to see a chart with the information of all the clients listed. It gets confusing when you are trying to view all these tools through the Square Appointments app. I also had a few issues with customer service where it took them longer than expected to get back to me.

My experience with Square Appts has been great! I absolutely love it and recommend it to my clients!

Pros: The pros are

1. it is great for setting appointments with easy.

2. You can receive notifications via SMS or email.

3. You can link appointments easily to your mobile phone calendar.

4. You can check your appointments via a full calendar from your Square account.

5. It's free for individuals.

6. Clients can pay for services when they set an appointment.

Cons: Square need to add the ability to upload a photo with the services described to help users better describe what they offer. If so, I think they would attract more businesses that rely on setting appointments.

Overall: Simply, the ease of use is the best benefit of this software!

Pros: I recently added to my website the new Square Appointments system and I really like it. Who don't want a free appointment system? It's really easy to setup in the Square dashboard, and into the website also with a simple copy/past html code. Customers receive reminders before the meeting, and it's also possible to set a payment online before the event. It really integrate well into Google Cal and Mac Calendar

Cons: There is not many options for the system.

You can't set specific rules like vCita or Calendly can do, but we must not forget that IT'S FREE. Other systems start at 15$US per month.

Overall: Configuration on the Square dashboard was easy,

installation in my website was a simple copy/past,

link to Google Cal was straight forward

really easy to use

Cons: That my clients have to input all of the information each time they make multiple appointments.

Overall: I find the square app and the overview on IPad are easy for me to navigate with whatever I may need. It seems I am always finding something new I haven't realized from before last log in.imehrou

Recommendations to other buyers: Is there any way that clients can navigate through their history of appointments without saving the confirmation emails?

Pros: Text and email alerts client 1 day before and 1 hour before appointment.

Cons: No alerts of upcoming appointments. Lets you double book your clients without alerting you that it is conflicting with another appointment/event. Scrolling through calendar sucks. Design could be better and more aesthetically pleasing. Not integrated with square payments - you have to ring up the items still.

Overall: The app isnt much to gawk at. Limited functionality and irritating at times. I don't like the scroll calendar. I dont like that it doesn't tell you if you have conflicting appointments or events when booking from the app. I dont like that it doesnt notify you of up coming appointments - as dumb as that sounds, when you are as busy as me it would be great to be notified.

Pros: Being able to embed this tool into my website. The previous scheduler did not provide this convenience. It's easy to use and easy to setup and it doesn't cost our company a dime.

Cons: No dislikes thus far. Have not used the tool longer than a month.

Overall: Having everything streamlined in one app. Also it takes the responsibility away from accepting phone calls for appointments. We can direct everyone to the website and it syncs with our phones to alert us. It also gives us the ability to accept an appointment or not.

We have lost 100s of dollars and have not been able to take any appointments for days and Square could care less.
