Editorial Team

We’re constantly releasing tools to help you start, run, and grow your business. In January, we launched a bunch of cool new features. To make sure you’re getting the most out of Square, here’s a highlight reel of what’s new.

New and improved Appointments iPhone app (version 1.3.2)

The Square Appointments iPhone app makes it easy to stay on top of your schedule from anywhere. With the new version, you can now view different staff calendars and create and edit appointments for your entire team. You can also now view the details of canceled appointments via notifications and client history. Download it now.

Dining Options

Now you can note whether a customer is dining in or taking an order to go. You can apply Dining Options to a whole order or to specific items within an order. They also appear on receipts, order tickets and in your reporting. Get started now.

Dining Tax Rules

Some items are taxed if a customer dines in, but not if a customer takes it to go. Square’s new Tax Rule feature makes handling this easy. Just create a tax rule and Square Point of Sale automatically applies the correct taxes to each order. Get started now.
