Managing schedules for staff is hard already, but staying flexible enough to accommodate the busy lives of your clientele makes running the front desk as tough as unicycling with your eyes closed.
MINDBODY built the appointment schedule to let your business run like a well-oiled machine. We know that your doors stay open as long as your books stay full, and we’re here to provide a tool that simplifies and automates as much of the work as possible.
Do your clients ever call in knowing exactly what they want, at an exact time, and on an exact day? We know that’s pretty rare, but when they do, we know it’s still challenging to coordinate your clients' preferences with your staff’s availability. That’s why the sidebar on the appointment schedule has quickly become the most important resource in the software.
When a regular calls in, you can find their favorite staff member on the schedule, click an available timeslot, and the sidebar will help you start gathering the who, what, where, and when. Begin typing the client’s name and choose a match from the menu below, or add a brand new client on the fly. Choose a service, find a time, customize length, and get on with business.

Even after you’ve shut down the lights and locked the doors, your MINDBODY site will keep the appointment books open for reservations. Our online scheduling platform gives your clients the freedom to book appointments on their own, at any time. When Mrs. Jones wakes up abruptly in the middle of the night realizing she forgot to book Susie’s updo for Prom this weekend, she can rest easy after scheduling (or requesting) an appointment online.
