Effortlessly Schedule and Manage Recurring Appointments
Stay on top of your most loyal customers’ bookings with Square Appointments advanced scheduling software.
What are recurring appointments?
Recurring appointments are appointments that are scheduled to take place multiple times typically by the same client. Hair and beauty salons or personal trainers, for example, could have repeat customers who want to schedule their appointments regularly. Recurring appointments can help businesses increase revenue and improve customer retention. Recurring appointment scheduling software, like Square Appointments, allows you to automatically book these appointments ahead of time, without having to manually enter them in.
Manage recurring bookings
Automate the process of scheduling recurring appointments. Arrange and cancel recurring bookings from the easy-to-use Square Dashboard or Square Appointments app to maintain a well organised calendar.
Schedule appointments in advance
Improve the customer experience by making it easy for customers to book all of their appointments ahead of time, this reduces the risk of them forgetting to book their next appointment.
Prevent no-shows with reminders and cancellation fees
Avoid no-shows by sending your customers automated reminder and confirmation messages for their appointments. You can decide when and how you want your clients to receive the messages. You can also create a cancellation policy for last-minute cancellations and no-shows so you don’t end up out of pocket.
