Looking to add Processing time to your appointments? Beta is recruiting for the Gap Time Feature!

Our Appointments Team is excited to announce the newest feature for Appointments is now recruiting for testing in Beta.  

 

You can now add Gap Times to your services and see them on your calendar. With this new feature, these "down times" can now be booked by your customers on your Square Appointments booking site.

 

Note: This feature is still in development, so gap times will only show up on the web (not on the mobile app initially)—we will be adding that functionality soon.

 

If you’re interested in testing this new feature, please let us know replying to this thread, and request to join our Beta Community by following this link. Upon enrolling in the Community, we'll get you started in the Beta for Gap Time Scheduling!

 

The Beta Community is a private community that will allow you to connect with us for feedback, additional feature suggestions, and bug reports, please make sure you request membership for the platform you use the Appointments application.

 

Gap Time for Square Appointments Beta is Live!

Please add processing time to appointments

Please add a processing time feature to appointments for hair colorists. Vagaro has this feature. Every time I've called Square, I've been told that my request will be esclated to the product team. Threads on this topic go as far back as 2016 to no avail. Thank you.

Re: Please add processing time to appointments

I agree with this post. I actually left square for Vagaro a couple months ago for this exact issue. There is a big community of hair stylists that need this feature. 

With Vagaro you get online booking, online store, emailing, gap time, item cost and average cost tracking, and better reporting all included. I understand appointments is free, but I was using it when it wasn’t. Square is missing out on a huge market. I’ve read other threads where others have asked for this to be added but will stay with their current provider until it is added. 

I did love the user friendliness of Square but you can’t keep telling everyone it’s “on the list”.
