AppointmentQuest Online Appointment Scheduler helps to automate one of the most daunting tasks in school and college administration – scheduling. Be it a parent conference, test, consultation, workshop, or seminar — AppointmentQuest has the right solution to accomplish your scheduling needs.

Let's take a look, for example, at a University Business School that has a class of 100 students. Students are required to attend to orientation sessions once each semester, but each session can only take 20 students at a time. Scheduling this manually takes a lot of the administrator's time, especially if there are many sessions to be scheduled at the beginning of each semester. AppointmentQuest has an easy and powerful solution: web scheduling. The administrator sets up a schedule for the session, defines dates, times and maximum number of students per session (with many other options available). Then, all students are given a specific URL to go to and sign up for their attendance. At the end, the administrator only has to print out attendance sheets from AppointmentQuest Online Appointment Scheduler before each session.Another example: your middle school periodically holds conferences for parents. There are a lot of students and a lot of parents, but classroom size is limited. Because of these constraints, the principal or school administrator has to schedule 5-6 conferences in a row and assign parents to specific days. Talking to each parent to see their availability is inefficient and time-consuming. The solution is web scheduling. Simply let parents sign themselves up for available days using AppointmentQuest Online Appointment Scheduler.AppointmentQuest Online Appointment Scheduler is a hosted application. This means you have no software to install and configure, no hardware to purchase and maintain, and no cumbersome upgrades to worry about. Your web scheduling is fully managed and available to you and your students 24/7.To see why AppointmentQuest Online Appointment Scheduler is the scheduling tool of choice for higher education institutions throughout United States and Canada, and to find out how online scheduling can help your department, open your free trial account today.

What is online scheduling software?

Online scheduling software is a hosted service that allows your students (or their patients) to make, reschedule, and cancel appointments online. When your students want to make an appointment with you, they go to your website, choose an available date and time, type in their contact info, and book the slot.

On the back end, you set up your scheduling configuration to define the exact appointment availability, based on your high school hours, as well as the times and dates when your personnel and classrooms are available for appointments. You can start by simply throwing your office hours at the scheduling configurator and letting it automatically do the rest, or dive into the nooks and crannies of the myriad of available settings to manually configure appointment intervals, custom forms, lead-ins, appointment overlap, slot capacities, reservation deadlines, flexible service durations, shared availability, etc. to make sure that your online appointment scheduler fits around your unique scheduling practices like a proverbial glove. Our appointment software allows school administrators the ability to quickly and easily see staff availability and handle customized booking options to organize meetings.

Simply put, you can think of online scheduling software as your administrator who works for you 24/7/365, does not need vacations or coffee breaks, never makes so much as a single mistake, and works almost for free so that you can save hours, money, and employees time. While other calendar management systems may not have the ability to see staff availability, organize student events, and automatically schedule meetings while reducing no-shows, our booking software saves you time so you can grow your curriculum.

Who is online scheduling software for?

If you care about time management, online scheduling software is for you. If the word "appointment" has ever bounced its echo against the walls of your admin office, online booking software is for you.

What are the limitations of free education scheduling services?

Free subscriptions to online education scheduling software services always come with numerous strings attached. The number of appointments that can be booked through free scheduling platforms are extremely low. Typically, there is only one scheduling calendar and only one user. Most trials of a booking system won't give you any of its advanced features with the free subscription. Reminders, payments, integrations, data entry and export, unlimited student database, and other advanced scheduling features are usually reserved for paid service subscriptions.

Realistically, if you are not paying anything for the service you should expect your data to be sold to third parties for marketing purposes, and you and your students are guaranteed to be bombarded with ads to compensate for your free subscription. Generally, you should not expect free customer support either, it will likely entail dealing with a call center. We do not recommend using free scheduling services for any legitimate purpose.

AppointmentQuest offers affordable paid subscription scheduling. We respect you as our customer and never sell you as a product.
