Square Appointments Update - Staff Custom Color and Personal Calendar Syncing

Looking at a calendar full of appointments can be overwhelming and confusing, especially when you are trying to decipher which appointment belongs to whom. I’m very excited to announce the newest improvements to Square Appointments designed to keep you, your staff, and your clients more organized.

 

To help keep everyone on the same page, our Appointments team is excited to announce two new features!

 

 

Customer Colors

 

Taking a quick glance at your Appointments calendar doesn’t always provide the information you need. To help differentiate each staff member’s appointments, you can now designate a color to each staff member’s appointments. This should help get you the information you need in just a quick glance! Its simple to set up:

  1. Log in to your Square Appointments Dashboard
  2. Select your Staff tab > Employee profile
  3. Scroll to the bottom of their profile and select a color to display their appointments.Screen Shot 2016-09-13 at 12.44.49 PM.png

Your calendar will display all of your staff appointments in their corresponding colors, making it a breeze to read your calendar, no matter how many staff members you have listed!

 

Sync Calendar

 

Your staff already benefitted from appointment notifications and calendar syncing, but your clients didn’t have that ability… until now! Your customers now have the option to sync their Appointments to their personal calendars so they will never forget an appointment!

When your client receives an email confirmation for their appointment, they will see the option to add the appointment to their personal calendars with one click!

Thanks for reading! We hope this new update will help save you time.  You can keep up with all of our latest releases by subscribing for email updates. Please feel free to start a new thread if you have any feedback for us.

 

See you next time!

Will Square be doing different colors for different appointment types? for example yellow for Gel polish appointments or Blue for Acrylic nail appointments?

This has been the canned reply for several years, but yet Square has yet to do it.. This is honestly one of the only things holding me back from switching from Vagaro. As well as being able to sync with my Apple Calendar rather than just Google Calendar. Any updates on this yet?

I’m a bridal seamstress and I am wanting to switch to square appointment booking as well, but (in my paper book) I color code my fittings by 1st(black), 2nd(blue), 3rd(red) and pick up appointments so at a quick glance I know what my week looks like. Color coding options when booking the type of service would be amazing!

Please make different appointment types different colors.  My calendar looks like one big blob of blue 😞

Welcome to the Community, @Summerelaine716

 

 

Appreciate your feedback about color options for your Appointments. 

 

There is an ongoing Feature Request in our Ideate Board. I recommend adding your voice to this request. Once there is more information, the status will be updated.

Would be great to have better colors, rather then different shades of green. blue and purple
