Get Started with Square Assistant on Square Appointments

With this automated assistant, your clients will be able to respond directly to SMS appointment reminders and confirm, reschedule, or cancel upcoming appointments. It will automatically update your Square Appointments calendar, and save you time managing your appointments.

To have the best experience possible using Square Assistant, please download the latest update from the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device.

If you handle all appointment changes yourself, Square Assistant will respect that policy.
